Just dropping by to share a layout I created using Teresa Collins very pretty Summer Stories Collection. I used a few of my favorite techniques on this simple layout. I say simple because so many layouts are being done with so much mixed media these days, that sometimes I think we are losing sight of the main reason we do them! That of course would be to showcase our beautiful pictures. While I haven't added mine yet, it is sure to be front and center on this layout.
|A Day to Remember|
Here's is a close-up of the large rosette which I cut from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge then layered it with a large scalloped circle and a few chipboard sentiments to use as my title. The bird and flower frame is from Dusty Attic. I gessoed the chipboard frame, and used water color pencils to add a touch of color to the bird and leaves. I didn't care for how the original flowers turned out, too coral or orange, rather than pink, so I just covered them with the organza black and white flowers. And you can see the doilies in the this picture a little bit better too.
You can see that I also gessoed a doily stencil from Prima in the background which softened the look of the printed papers. And last you can see some random zigzag sewing around the frame and edges.
At the bottom there is another smaller rosette with a large rose chipboard to balance out the page. I used Prima's sparkle paste on the rose chipboard to make it very sparkly! Note to self: A little goes a LONG way!
As we take one last look at the whole page you can see that I've created two peek-a-boo lace and pearl openings.
Overall I like the effect of the pink and white on black, to me its has a very striking effect. I hope you enjoyed this layout.
Until next time, thank you for dropping by. I hope you have a wonderful day my scrappy friends! Hugs to All ~ Dawna
