Good Morning Arty Peeps!
Welcome again to the Scrapping Clearly Blog.
Today is my birthday and I have just spent the weekend
hanging out with my two favourite girls
who live a day's drive away.
If I ever win lotto I'm moving closer!
I did this layout to celebrate our friendship.
Here are the details.
I had these two backgrounds already made.
My art room works like a production line when I have new products, this time it was a Gel Press
so thought I might use up two on the one page by cutting one into circles.
After inking the edges of the circles I stuck them down around my page,
trimmed the edges by 1/4" on each side and matted the whole thing
on black card (being sure to cut out the middle first to mat my photo).
I wanted to use the dreamcatcher sticker from this sheet but it was a little clean,
so I added some matching Distress Oxide colours to it too. I love these acetate words from Heidi Swapp,
I inked the edges with an alcohol marker to make them stand out a bit more,
and used 2 on my page, attaching them with staples coloured with Stazon ink.
Dymo filled in the gaps, of course.
The only other things I added were the super cute banner,
It's all held together with double-sided tape and staples.
So quick and easy with ready-made backgrounds!
