Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - Hello Awesome You -
|a close up of the layout|
this is my last post of the month for Scrapbook Nerd , I had so much fun working with all the pretty paper and embellies, especially Jillibean Soup's Healthy Hello collection. It has such nice patterns and add ons, that i had to build a second layout with it.
I was inspired by the feathers in one of the papers, and the cut-outs, so I went ahead and used trace paper to copy them. I trace them onto white cardstock, and used a paper piercer to create a stitching pattern. Using matching embroidery thread, the feathers were hand stitched to create the background paper.
|I used trace paper to copy the feathers in the cutouts, and then transfer them to the cardstock.|
Using some of the papers on the collection, I created layers behind the pictures of my daughter (on her first day of her Orthodontic treatment -though she was in pain, her face never showed it; hence the title-). I traced the same feathers on vellum and used markers to define the feather; a little handstitching help to add interest. A few acrylic pieces were also attached with a few stitches to follow with the design.

In order to balance the piece, I added a small cluster of all the papers (even some part of the packaging) to the upper corner of the layout. I used a few punches to create decorative borders and attached everything with a sewing machine.

For the title, I used part of the stickers that came in the kit, and chose to add some acrylic pieces (which i colored with a pink sharpie). I also added a large vellum feather with gold stitching to tie in the feel of the layout.

Finally, I stitched my lines of journal and added a few pieces of wood cut-outs to complete the piece. Here is the final layout:
|So in love with the final layout...|
I hope that you take a look at the collection, it is really a beautiful set of papers, acrylic pieces and wood veneers. I am sure the ladies at Scrapbook Nerd will be more that willing to help with the order. Please contact me if you have any questions.
See you soon!!
