Hi everybody, Lisa here with another Make It Yours Monday and I LOVE the layout I have to share with you today!! I was inspired by the BEAUTIFUL layout I saw on Facebook over the weekend by the talented Beata Valint (http://myshinystudio.blogspot.hu/2016/08/designer-spotlight-at-scrapbook-expo.html)
I used my brothers scan n cut to cut out the file she shares on her blog. Then, I got to weeding it out!!
After that was completed, I used some Shimmers Coloringz in Keep Palm and i watered it down to get a really light watercolor as well as some Pretty In Pink coloringz. I used a few other shimmers colors (Giddy About Green, Pink-A-Boo, Meet Me @ Sunset, and Pugnacious Purple) to add hints of color to the cut file. I also used some Dazzlers in Tutti Frutti to hold down the sequins I added to bring more color and sparkle to the page. The sequins I used were Pinky Pie Pinks, Lets Be Mermaids, Moonshine Delight and A Mermaid’s Tale
Then I chose a light teal paper from the Fancy Free paper pad I picked up in the shop and trimmed it down to fit and adhered it on a pink mat and them placed the cut file over top
After the cut file was secured (tip, use a fineline bottle for this one!) I matted my photo and used some foam adhesive to pop it up. I added my title to fit around the corner and it fit really nice!
I am so thrilled with this one. my little one even said, “Awww, that’s me and it’s so pretty!” I hope you enjoyed the process and dont forget to use Lisa15 for 15% off all your SpiegelMom Scraps orders!!!
Happy NSD! It’s Laura and I am interrupting the celebrations to share my regular Saturday post with you – but don’t worry – it is a layout!
I’ve been experimenting with the white felt feathers. I wanted to know if they would take colour – they do! I sprayed the feathers with water and sprinkled on some brusho powders. I needed a lot of water to get the colour moving but I love the results. Now I know I can alter any of the white felt shapes to any colour to match whichever project I am working on.
I dyed these ones to match my budgie’s feathers – yellows, greens and a little blue in the long tail feather. The different sized yellow sequins in the Spring Blooms and Sunny Smiles mixes match in perfectly. Other than that I kept it fairly simple layering each feather over a piece of cotton ribbon tape and stitching with my sewing machine to attach to the layout.
I added my alphas directly to my photo and popped up the top of each letter with a little silicone glue. I love the extra dimension this gives the page.
This also fits the criteria for my challenge to you over the weekend – scrap a layout with ribbon. If you do you can join us at SpiegelMom Scraps facebook page to link up!
Thanks for stopping by!
