It feels like forever since I have done any scrapbooking and I cannot blame lack of photos as I got a whole lot printed a while ago - this layout is one that I have created using the fabulous DP from Hot Off the Press in the Color Me range.
I will be teaching a class at my LSS in a couple of weeks using this layout....there are a couple of fun techniques involved....
This fabulous chandelier was given to me by my friend Hannah (aka bubblefrog) as part of a BRAK - I have used Crackle Medium on it and added some bling - you know that chandeliers have got to have bling!
To balance the page I have created an eclectic scene, using chipboard, flowers, bling, brads, buttons and the wonderful border from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent, this has been cut using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.
Emboss Resist has been used on the DP - it is so quick and easy to get such a great look.
A close up of the effect of the Crackle Medium on the letters - I love how it looks!
The sentiment from Layers of Color The Love Chapter has been embossed using Versamark and SU Black Embossing Powder.
I am sure there are no surprises to see that there is a bit of sponging - one of my favourite techniques...I love the aged look it creates so quickly.
This layout is also for the following challenges:
