Hello Bloggers! Happy Tuesday!
Up on the blog today is the final design team project for September from The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington. BoBunny Apple Cider papers, stickers, chipboard and trinkets were used on these projects, along with some burlap from my stash! Something I really liked about this line was how it helped me take non-fall photos and turn them into fall layouts! What? Really! It's true!
Each member of the design team was also given paint to work with this month. I received a Butterscotch Acrylic Paint Dabber from Adirondack.
A brick stencil and the butterscotch paint was used over the photo background. Additional paint was used on the edges of everything, including a few swipes on the background paper. I was a little hesitant, as I had never tried this directly onto a photo ~ glad it wasn't a disaster!
A little trinket from the Apple Cider line anchored the right side of the layout.
A closer look at the title, made from the sticker sheet letters, border sticker, patterned papers and chipboard pieces, foam taped onto the layout.
The corner flourish on the mat for the main photo was cut so that the photo would slip under it...and a little detail on the "brick-work."
This layout is the same kid in the first layout, only 24 years older! This is actually a spring photo, but the orange shirt he wore that day just popped when the papers were layered behind it!
The title for the second layout uses a little more burlap, this time it was painted over Tim Holtz alpha masks.
To mimic the flourish pattern on the chipboard journaling piece, the burlap"ribbons" were painted and then very lightly stamped with a Tim Holtz Elegant Flourish stamp. The photo did not pick it up - it is very faint. All the burlap pieces were then inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
The chipboard pieces, as well as the leaf die cuts (photo at right ) were "glammed" with Tattered Angels Golden Goddess Glam.
In the photo, right, the scallop dotted piece was cut with a Sizzix Giant Scallops die and two sets of leaves were cut with a die from Extended Cuts - Fall Leaves and Acorns. Before the leaf die cuts were "glammed," all the embossed texture was drawn in with a brush marker and the edges were inked with Rusty Hinge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
