Hello crafty friends ! What are you crafting these days?
I’ve just finished playing along with a Scrapbook Challenge at Paige Evans Facebook group, Happy Scrappy Place. Paige provided this gorgeous cut-file to use:
The prize was a goodie bag of Paige’s, much anticipated new collection, Horizon. I’m really excited to get Horizon in my craft room so of course I wanted to join in (it will arrive at Treasured Memories very soon).
I used two sheets of Paper No. 15 from Paige’s Turn The Page Collection. The yellow side is my cut-file and the floral side was fussy cut for embellishments.
To create a spot for the pop dots, I added triangles of clear heavy acetate to the back. They’re barely visible from the front and once the embellishments are layered on top, they disappear completely.
Popping up the cut-file helped create shadow and texture. I gently bent up some petal edges to add even more texture.
Once the fussy cut flowers are layered on top, you don’t see the acetate at all !
I always love to add dips and dot’s of paint, Stickles and Nuvo Jewel Drops in coordinating colours. The title, ‘Miss You Dad’ (made with Thickers from the Whimsical Collection), is a nod to the large tag. It says, “You are stronger than you think”. Those of us who’ve lost our dads and miss them, will get the connection.
Finally, I added a chain stitch with gold thread along the boarder, sequins and butterflies.
Lovely Laura Alberts won the challenge, but I had a great day scrapping and having happy thoughts about dear dad walking me down the aisle.
Thanks so much for coming by. Please let me know in comments any questions I can help with!
Cheers, Kelly ❤
