G’day everyone, I am so excited…. Today I get to share with you my very first project for Scottie Crafts. I received my kit earlier this week and couldn’t wait to get started. I have to admit that at first I was a little daunted by the papers I received, not my usual style, but it is always good to be pushed out of our comfort zones - Don't you think? and I really do love a good challenge. I am really chuffed with how this layout turned out. I don't do them very often...as you all know.
I began by distressing the edges of the paper with just a pair of scissors and adding a few rips and tears.
I inked the the tears with some Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Walnut Ink
Using the Kaisercraft Chickenwire Acrylic stamp that came in my kit...I added some background to the black cardstock
I layered the Bark paper so that the stamping peeked out from under the rips and tears
I then lightly spritzed the Basecoat Bark with some Lindy's Stamp Gang - Tiffany Blue Starburst spray and added a few splatters to tie in with the snow theme.
After matting my photo on some more black cardstock, I began the layering process. I added a paper doily from my stash and a rubon from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Elements that was also in my kit.
Then I had some fun with all the yummy goodies that came in my kit to create my flower cluster
The products I have used include:
I created my own cabbage come rolled rose type flower that you see in the centre of the cluster.... This is made using a torn strip of cheesecloth soaked in diluted white glue....dried and then wrapped and rolled to form this flower!! I will show you how I made this if you like? So keep an eye out for the tutorial.
So here is my layout....with all the elements .....
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend...
Thanks for stopping by....I love feedback so please feel free to leave a comment!!
