Hi all, I am hoping the month of May is going well for you. The farm we work on has started seeding so that means hubby is working from midnight to around 2pm. Which means for me I can watch anything I want on T.V and (in theory) get lots of scraping done. I have also got to get down the cross stitch xmas stocking that I started for Iona by the beginning of December!!! I am going to be busy.
The 2 layouts I have today are Vintage and Shabby Chic. I just love doing layouts using the colours/ technique and products from these themes.
The first is Vintage
I used Kasiercraft pattern paper that I scrunched up into a ball, flattened out again and with Distress ink (tea dye) lightly inked the paper, giving an old look. You can use any ink as long as its old. Also you can use coffee or tea (yes the ones you drink) Just wait til the drink is cold and with a paint brush rub the water on the paper and set to dry.
I also inked around the red letters, cardstock and paper. I used a rub-on from Basic Grey up in the right hand corner.
The 2nd layout I finished today.....
I love this photo, could not belive when I walked outside and here are the 2 girls with pegs in their hair having a ball!!!
This layout I found I did not have orange letters or rhinestones and I wanted them on the layout as the pegs are orange. So I used creamed kasiercraft letters silver rhinestones and coloured them with an orange ink pen. You could also use ink/copic markers or the like. This just shows you don't have to run to the shops to buy something when a little thought can get you out of trouble (and when you live nearly 2hrs away from the nearest scrapbooking shop its not something I can just duck to lol)
The journalling card was a Kasiercraft rub-on that I stuck on cardstock then cut around.
I am really happy how both layouts turned out. And over the next 4 weeks of seeding hope to get more done!!
