I have my 1st DT post of
the month to share with you.
I have been scrapping with some of the Kaisercraft Pen and Ink
Collection. This collection is really lovely and it has a vintage style
with a mix of floral, butterflies and ephemera in soft sepia tones. I
think it would be versatile enough to scrap various themes, including
masculine, feminine, heritage and animals etc.
I chose a
photo of our youngest daughter, taken several years ago now on a visit
to Michelham Priory. She sat for ages in the window, fascinated by
something outside in the garden and I love how the gentle sunlight lit
her face so softly.
I used 4 sheets of the paper from the collection ...Ephemera,Chandalier, Linework and Journaled.
also used some Tim Holtz dies ( Tattered Floral) and some of the
Journaled sheet to create the large flower and also the Elegant Flourish
die and some of the Zinc Bazzill.
The other flowers were made using more of the Journaled sheet and the roly rose technique
drew round a tea plate onto a sheet of Zinc Bazzill, cut it out then
scrunched it up into a ball. I rolled it about to and fro in my hands to
soften it and distress it some more, then straightened it back out and
flattened it as much as possible. Using some Brilliance ink pads in
Copper, Gold and Silver gently swiped over the circle and the ink picked
up on the creases and highlighted them. I also inked the edges of the
other elements I had cut out.
also used the copper ink on a script stamp, which I used on the lower
right hand side of the page. Various items were cut from the ephemera
sheet, were inked and then scattered and layered in various sections
