It’s been a while since I posted a scrap book page. Here is one that I have been demonstrating at workshops lately using two of my favourite sets : “Always” and “Baroque” background.
I kept the layout fairly simple and let the photo speak for itself.
Here’s what I used to create this layout :
Ink : Basic Brown, Versa Mark, Earth Elements Markers
Paper : Berry Bliss Double Sided designer Series paper, Cameo Coral 12×12 cardstock
Accessories : Antique Brass Hodgepodge photo turn, Rhinestone Brad (Pretties Kit), On Board Lots of Letters chipboard circle, Gold embossing powder, Clear embossing powder, Stampin’ Dimensonals, Mini Glue Dots.
Here’s a close up of the Birdie :
I’ve inked up the stamp first in Versa mark, then straight into Basic Brown ink before stamping onto Whisper White cardstock.
I embossed the image with Clear embossing powder and then colured in the detail with coordinating earth Elements Markers.
The Baroque Background looks a little different on this page because I’ve stamped it and them cut out the swirls so I could arrange them on the page to frame the photo. They remind me a bit of feathers the way I’ve used them on this page. I’ve used my markers to create a two tone effect on the swirls before breathing over the stamp and stamping it onto Whisper White.
I’m pretty happy with the way this page turned out.
Let me know what you think 🙂
