Hi lovely scrappers and welcome to my blog.
Here is a layout I have just finished for a sketch challenge over at Scrap That.
See sketch and link below.
This is how I put the page together.
I kept to the colours in the photo so chose pale green, lemon and blue.
I double matted my photo and distressed the edges.
I cut out the half scalloped border using a cardstock template and inked the edges.
I then double matted my pretty background paper with green and lemon and distressed the edges.
I added the scallop border.
I then added some other border strips underneath the photo.(Just seen). I used some cardboard that I inked.
I added the doily. (I just love doilies)!
I then used the same pretty paper, reverse side, to add the torn piece in the top right corner and inked the edges.
I cut out the birdcage from the same paper and stamped a little bird inside.
I added some rose buds, punched flowers and punched branches to the birdcage.
I then decorated with an assortment of flowers and leaves and added two die cut dragonflies with my hand made beaded pins as bodies.
I added brooch cut from the same paper and a few pearls.
And there you have it, a lovely memory in about 12 easy steps.
