OK, down to business then. This time around I have a layout for you. I know, it’s been a while, and I know we sell a lot of art supplies and goodies that are great for your mixed media projects and art journals, but we also have a fabulous range of scrapbook papers. This is a really straight forward and inexpensive layout as I’m betting you’ll have most of the bits, or things you could substitute sitting in your stash. Nothing fancy, and yes, there is paint involved.
I’ve taken just two sheets of 12x12 paper.
From 7 Dots Studio’s Dreamer collection – City Lights using the “b” side which looks like this….
Next up – from Graphic 45’s Olde Curiosity Shoppe… Butterfly Specifics
The photo’s I’m using on this layout are of The Angel Of The North, so to help create a more industrial feel to the page I’ve grunged up the 7 Dots paper and the photo’s by taking a paint dabber (Jenni Bowlin Fountain Pen) and using it fairly dry and cross hatching around the edges. Test your dabber on some scrap paper first to get rid of any excess paint. You do need it fairly dry for this effect.
Next I’ve taken a Prima mask (fence 2), and have used it with Violet Archival Ink on some some cut ‘n dry foam.
Background done! How easy was that?! I know very, right, and I’ll bet you still have clean fingers and haven’t decorated half your desk with ink and paint. Bonus!
I’ve used three photo’s, all different sizes, put them in place and then added strips of Tim Holtz Tissue tape (from the Traveller set in this case), layering them up.
For the final touch I’ve cut six butterflies from the Graphic 45 paper and added a date stamp using the SMASH Date stamp.
Don’t forget to leave a comment, both here and on the UKS post. I’ll do a random draw here for a commentator to win a £10.00 gift voucher to spend at a sprinkle of imagination!
Happy Hopping, I hope you’ve enjoyed my project and enjoy the next project at a trip down memory lane!
Thanks for stopping by!
