Hello again, today I am featured Papermaze blog.
Do you have certain photo's
that you are happy to scrap more than once? I do ....and this is one of
them. Me with my Daddy, when I was just a toddler and my parents had a
photographer come to our home for a little photo shoot.
(Apologies for the poor quality and slightly off set photo of the layout, I am having a few technical problems at the moment)
I decided I would mix up a couple of manufacturer's papers for this layout and I have used both Blue Fern Studios (Tranquility) and also a little bit of Kaisercraft (Cottage Rose).
I took a sheet of Tranquility - Hushed and used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set and some scalloped edge scissors all around the edge of the sheet, I then stuck it to a sheet of Juneberry cardstock so
that there is a little frame of deep, dusty pink. I also used the same
card to die cut some branches with leaves and I dry brushed then with
white acrylic paint....I also dry brushed the photo edges to give a
softer feel to it.
I wanted to add lots of texture and
dimension to my page so created a fabric photo mat using cheesecloth,
layered up and mixed with texture paste. I then spread some texture
paste onto a square of bubble wrap and stamped it onto the page. Before
the cheesecloth and stamped area dried, I drizzled some Microbeads in
various colours on and they set as it dried.
had some flowers to use but felt that the black one was too harsh for
the page....this was soon remedied by spritzing it liberally with a Cosmic Shimmer spray mist
....end result much prettier and co-ordinates much better with the page I thought.
I made some bunting using various frames cut from a sheet of Kaisercraft Cottage Rose - Framed
and tied them together using lace which was then knotted at each end.
The little girl on the bottom left of the photo was cut from a sheet of Tranquility - Calling Cards
and I also printed out some various butterflies to use on the page, to
which I added some pretty crystal swirls, leaving delicate trails behind
Once again it's been a pleasure scrapping with Blue Fern Studios.....and you can find all their products and many others besides all over at Papermaze.
Wishing you all a super, summery August.
