Here is another layout using Georgia Blues Collection
from Prima. These papers are an absolute pleasure to create with and I
am rather sad that I am at the end of my stash of them ( I think I shall
have to be putting in a order for some just to squirrel away and keep
just to stroke and admire!!) I had one whole sheet left in my DT kit and
some scraps from other sheets left over and I knew they were just right
for this photo of my youngest daughter and I on her prom night.
I based the layout on a sheet of The Watermark and used the reverse side, that has gentle filing around the edges. Using one of the stitches stamps from the 49 and Market Gabi's Line Stitch set I dabbed it with a Distress Stain in Blueprint Sketch
and stamped around the edges of the page from each corner. I also used
some bubble wrap that I removed from the centre of a jiffy bag ( it was
tiny bubbles and just perfect!) and chose 3 colours of acrylic paint,
Cobalt Blue, Platinum and Silver. These were gently sponged onto the
bubbles and then laid onto the page, pressing gently so as not to pop
I took some Dusty Chipboard
from my own stash ( there is a great selection of various chipboard
embellishents in the shop) and gave it a watercolour brushover with some
blue paint and then added Silver Beadazzles, Blue Glitter and Silvery
Liquid Pearls onto the berries.
I used up left over strips and panels from the sheets of Memory Lane and Written Chapters
which were gently inked around the edges using an old brown inkpad.
These strips were then layered up across the page before adding the
photo which was printed in a 5 x 5 format.
I used Pink Fresh Studio Puffy alphabet stickers for my Title in black. These are available in a variety of colours in the shop.
I added a piece of cotton lace below the photograph.
And then added the chipboard spray when the glue and Liquid Pearls had dried.
I also printed out some butterflies, which I fussy cut and added in various paces on the layout to finish it off.
So that's it....I am all out of delicious Georgia Blues papers now....gutted! At least its a good excuse to pop over to the SHOP and do a little retail therapy isn't it???
See you next month, I hope you liked my layout xx
