Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - NOT TODAY!!! -
It is Product Spotlight at Scrapbook Nerd, and this month is all about Pinkfresh Studio. So the DTs will be creating projects using their collections to create a project of their own. Once I saw the new The Case of the Blahs collection, I knew that it would work with my every day life pictures, just like the one documented of my constant fight with losing my eyeglasses, just to find them atop of my head.
For this i took advantage of the papers of the collection to create a paper pieced background. The "Akward" paper was cut on a diagonal, then one of the new triangles was flipped to the b side, and hand stitched together. To compensate for the angle of the cut, a strip of paper was also hand stitched to the top and bottom of the layout.
To create the large title, one of Paige Evans font cut file was used. The title letters were welded together, and cut from white cardstock. Each empty space was then backed with a different paper from the 6x6 paper pad.
To bring more intererst to the title, the exclamation marks were backed with some phrases that are recurring in the paper designs. The title was then attached to the layout using a bit of foam adhesive.
A few of the collection embellishments, and a few pieces from the Mix 2 were used to create a few clusters around the picture. A few lines of journal and some ink splatters (not my best splattering effort) complete this page.
Let's just i totally love how this turned out, and the reality of the picture and the story behind it. If you haven't seen the new Pinkfresh collections, they are all available at Scrapbook Nerd, along with lots of the latest releases from other manufacturers, too!
As always let me know if you have questions on how this turned out.
See you all soon!
