Page Layout Contest From We B Scrappin
Here is a layout I submitted for a page layout contest that I did a couple months ago for a local store We B Scrappin. And I was the lucky winner of an awesome prize pack that month!
I started with a piece of cream color card stock from Close to my Heart (I believe they call it Vanilla Cream) I distressed the edges of it with Rangers Vintage Photo (which I use a lot and is my favorite distress ink color) and the broken china. Then I spritzed the whole page with my mini mister that I added the gold perfect pearls to to give it a shimmer look and that also turned my distressing into a water color look on the edges. I then selected my paper which was a Prima paper that I had just bought, cut that and then used a Fiskars paper edger to do the bottom edge of the Prima paper. I cut the 3 smaller photos all the same size 2 x3 and the larger one is 4x5.
I cut a piece of the same color card stock for the title and used a template I had to draw lines on it for journaling. The title I cut out with a spellbinders nestibilities die. I also distressed the edges of that stamped the title then spritzed with just water to get the water color effect again. I distressed the edges of the journaling block as well with the vintage photo. The butterfly is from a Close to my Heart Stamp set that was actually a stamp of the month set awhile back. I embossed it with gold embossing powder on the same Prima paper I used for my background. I added some lace to the top and then put all the pieces together and glued them on. I used my Versamark to stamp some butterflies on the bottom and dusted with the perfect pearls. Finally I used the tarnished brass distress stickles on the bottom corners and the whole top edge to give it a little more glimmer and more dimension.
