Scrapbook Layout - Mom - created for Scrapbook Nerd's Summer Camp.
|The title of the layout|
We are in full Summer Camp over at Scrapbook Nerd; for the past weeks all our members (you can join us, just click on this link http://scrapbooknerd.com/ to be taken to the website, all information is on the forum or at the Facebook page) have been challenged to create projects based on Summer camp ideas. They have the entire summer to finish and upload them to the site.
This layout is all about "LET IT SHINE" -the name of my challenge-, as i used lots of shiny stuff to create it. I had this idea for the layout, since the day I took the picture, so it came together rather fast. It all started after I foiled a Heidi Swapp MInc collection paper. The paper was then cut into even strips of about 0.6 in. The strips were then attached in sequential order using the sewing machine onto patterned paper.
|After stitching, both edges were slightly raised on each of the strips.|
The strips were placed so that there was a 4 in gap on the middle of the page. Here I placed the picture, surrounded by lots of glittery flowers and leaves. Some ephemera was tucked in between the flowers; a few word stickers were also added to the picture. For the title, i used a cut file from Studio Calico; this time i printed it and trace it straight onto vellum and color it with a gold paint marker.
|I added some gold centers to the flowers using a bit of gold paint|
To create a visual triangle, a smal cluster of tags and ephemera was added to the top left corner of the page (i added my journal in one of the tags in the cluster). Since the paper strips lift up, the cluster was tucked in the strips.
|I used gold as the main focus color of this layout.|
Finally, I added a few butterfly cut outs, a few drops of black liquid ink, and made sure all the strips were slightly creased. Here is the completed layout:
|Though it is full of shiny elements, they workin harmony due to the choice of color.|
I really like how the layout turn out at the end, and it fits the "Make it Shine" theme perfectly.
