July Challenge - Webster's Pages - Remember
Webster's Pages is hosting a challenge this month featuring vintage photos. Be sure to visit the challenge site by clicking here. I am preparing for my family reunion so what a perfect time to create a vintage project.
This is a photo of my aunt Shirley. She is my mother's younger sister. I have not seen many baby photos of her so this one is a special treasure.
Since this was a baby layout I wanted to use soft, beautiful colors. Lullaby Lane has the perfect palette for such a project.
I distressed the edges using my edge distresser.
Fussy cutting is something that I do quite often. It makes such a great impact in your design. I cut leaves from patterned paper to use as an embellishment.
I used Key Lime and Robin's Egg Blue glimmer mist on the page.I used my matting as a mask. I simply turned it over and sprayed.
I used a fancy chipboard frame for my photo. I used zip dry to glue the paper to the frame. I turned the paper over and glued the front of the frame to the back of the paper.
Once trimmed, I sanded the edges with my file set from Basic Grey and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I used a stamp from Stampin' Up to create leaves along the bottom of my page. I used Brown Memento ink and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I also used Brown Memento ink to stamp my border. This stamp is from American Crafts
I painted the fairy using my Copic markers. I used E11 to color her skin.
Along the way I like to take a photo to see how my page looks. Here you can also see how I build the page.
I love Webster's Pages Bloomers. I could use them on everything! I cut three and glued Prima mini roses to the middle of each bloom.
Thanks so much for joining me.
