For this particular layout I’ve chosen to use the above listed non-traditional scrapbooking projects.
To start I created the background using the chip board, book page and paint. I first adhered the book page using a glue stick and then scraped some cream paint randomly over this, using a piece of scrap card
I then dried it using the heat gun.
To further embellish the layout I used some surgical gauze, parts of a macramé belt, flower from a vintage doilie, and dried potpourri flowers.
To begin I coloured the gauze using a cream coloured spray mist, and dried it quickly using a heat gun. This way it dries stiff and makes it easy to adhere with the glue stick, and then tease, fray and shape as required.
This was dried with a heat gun before being adhere to the layout using a glue stick.
The potpourri flowers have been adhered using a quick clear drying gel glue.
To create the stems and centres of the flower embellishments I have cut down the tassels from the macramé belt and adhered them using quick clear drying gel glue.
I have also used a flower cut from a vintage doilie to use as a centre for one of the flowers
To create the title I have used one of the macramé belt tassels to create the letter A.
Here are some close up shots of the final project.
Well I do hope you enjoy this months challenge. A big big thank you to Charmane and the team for having me on board I so so chuffed.
Cheers Louise xxx
