Hello, Laura here today to share a shaker scrapbook layout with a process video.
I assembled my giant shaker pocket with vellum and super sticky tape. I reckon almost any transparent material can be made in to a shaker pocket, and narrow tape or a line of stitching with a sewing machine are my favourite ways to attach the edges.
Gauging the amount of sequins for your shaker pocket is an art… I like to hold the edge closed and give it a shake and find I often don’t have enough. You need a fair amount in the pocket to give the best effect, especially in a pocket this size. Aren’t those teeny tiny stars adorable? I love them mixed with the larger stars too.
I coloured my wood veneer with a silver pen. To give a nice base to colour on to, and to get the best colour from the silver I added a thin coat of white gesso first. The silver seems to look more silver over white than it does over the plain wood – does that make sense?!
You’ll find more details about the rest of the supplies listed on my blog in a couple of days. Don’t forget to add the code Laura15 at the SpiegelMom Scraps shop checkout to receive 15% off!
