|My uncle Allan and aunts Bernice and Elsie|
For this layout I used a piece of 49 and Market paper for the background and Maja Design papers for some of the die-cuts.
|Paper No. 09 - Vintage Remnants|
49 and Market
These are the dies I used:
For the leaf and flower die-cuts, I traced around them with a marker to accentuate the edges. The larger die-cuts were layered over a black copy and offset slightly to create a faux shadow. To make the small spiky flowers, I layered the small flower die-cuts and glued some Prills in the center using Perfect Paper Adhesive. I transfered some of the adhesive to a small fine-tipped bottle for more precise application.
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
I painted the chipboard pieces dark brown then applied Prima Texture Paste - White Crackle. When that was dry I rubbed brown ink overtop to "antique" it and accentuate the cracks. I also traced around the edges with a brown marker to make it "pop" off the page a bit more. Nuvo Vintage Drops in Bonnie Blue was applied to the floral parts of the Spring Trinket pieces.
I added a few touches of blue watercolour around the page and applied some Prima Art Stones. I mixed the 3 different sizes of the art stones in a small cup, poured some Perfect Paper Adhesive overtop, stirred to coat the stones and applied them with a palette knife (scraping small clumps off with a tooth pick).
I also applied a few eyelets and did some punching randomly around the edges of the page.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
