Today I am sharing with you a scrapbook single page layout I am doing for the Aussie Crafters February Snazzy Sketch.
Here is a copy of the sketch
I kept the shabby chic theme in my layout which to me is beige creams and pinks. I had loads of fun creating this page and have never done this technique before, it finished up beautifully and I certainly plan to use it again - I wish I could credit someone for the brick idea but it was all me I so totally invented it!
So without any further delay I introduce to you my latest creation ....
If you would like to follow along you will need:
1 sheet 12 x 12 Dk Brown card stock
1 sheet 12 x 12 Beige Card stock
Pink (machine) handmade paper
Basic paper crafting tools.
On the next row I start a little in from the edge of the page so that that the brick effect starts to show.
When I got to the 3rd row I started skipping the middle ones so that I wouldnt waste washi tape that would end up being hidden behind the heart.
I don't have a big enough heart die that would have suited this sketch so I cut one on the Silhouette. I am very sure my freehand would have been alot more shabby than Shabby chic ....... At this stage I could use the heart to measure the area that didn't need washi tape bricks.
For the font I took advantage of the extra space at the bottom of the page I cut the heart out from, and used the area to cut out the Letters for Je T' Aime. I put this onto pink (machine) handmade paper and fluffed the edges.
After sticking down the heart I left the edges loose so that I could thread some raffia thru the lacey edge, on the side before sticking on the pink roses. I also tied a bit of raffia into a loose knot at the top of the heart and put a couple of roses on top of the knot. I also added a photo of my amazing mother to the middle of the heart.
Thanks for visiting and if you would like to try out this challenge by all means ...... if you are a resident in Australia - why not join the Aussie Crafters and submit your sketch to the challenge and stand the chance to win a prize.
