This month’s scrapbooking layout features the Emboss Resist technique – a FUN and different way to use your stamped images!
I love the colour combination of blue and green, and the new Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist are a fresh duo:
I will confess this is one of those projects that just looks like a big mess until it’s all put together and finished! Even my daughter told me it was ugly when I was “in process”.
The background is done with just a sheet of Whisper White, which I’ve stamped and clear embossed with various images. Then I took three inks: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pool Party and sponged colour in a diagonal “line” across the page.
The die cuts are from the Flourishes die set, one of those “must haves” if you like pretty details! I gently inked them up.
I used the Stitched Shapes dies to create the two circles on the page. (Quite honestly, the Stitched Shapes die set is another “must have” – I use these so much!)
I designed this page in May when I didn’t have access to the new papers and the existing ones were all being discontinued, so . . . .I made my own! The element above with the dragonfly is just a sheet of Whisper White stamped up using the Awesomely Artistic set so create a unique “printed paper”.
This is a great little tip for anyone – when you just don’t have that quite right paper, with inks and stamps, it’s easy to make one to perfectly coordinate.
Hmmm this piece across the bottom of the layout is a bit different! This is also emboss resist, so it perfectly ties in with the main page, but is different enough to be visually interesting.
And although almost nobody in class gets this part done, sometimes I like to include a coordinating pocket page with the layout. I hope it shows how easy it is to get a few more photos in using the same bits and pieces one probably already has out doing the first page. And it’s a good way to use up any little leftover scraps.
And that’s me for this Thursday evening. Thanks for stopping by!
