First up is this layout of my daughter Emily scribbling ideas down in her trusty note book.
Using the 'Pencil it in' paper I cut off the row of pencils and leaving a 1" band of black along the bottom I cut round each pencil. I kept the manufacturer's strip as this also had a pencil on it, I used this on another project.
|Here is how I cut the paper ...|
|... and the pencils|
The Black Bazzill, was gutted to leave a 1" frame (12" x 12"). Then a sheet of White Bazzill was cut to 11.5" x 11.5" and spritzed it with Black Soot Distress Stain. The white cardstock was then mounted centrally onto the black. The strip of pencils was stuck across the page so they were near the top.
I selected the following items from the collection:Pink Dot Black Dot,
Teal Dot Yellow Dot
4 x 6 Horizontal Journalling Cards
Expressions Cardstock Stickers
From these I cut shapes images and quoted, they were inked with Black Soot Distress ink and mounted onto Black Bazzill to leave a very narrow border. Some of these elements were raised with 3D foam pads. I made a tag from the quote and added a yellow ribbon bow.
I outlined all the pencils and the pink letters with a black marker pen.
To finish I scattered some 'Carpe Diem Enamel Dots' over the page.
Honey I Shrunk The Kid
My second layout shows my cousin's daughter Rosie on holiday in Tenby.
Another sheet of White Bazzill, this time I edged the page with stitch stamps from PaperArtsy JOFY from set 26 and a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. Then I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick and Black Soot.
The decorative strips across the centre of the page were created from both sides of 'Pencil it in' paper. The pleated strip from the rainbow side has been stitched in place with the sewing machine. The black was left over from cutting out the pencils earlier and was cut using a Martha Stewart deep edge punch.
The Balloons were stamped onto the colour side 'Pencil it in' paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Crazy Things stamps. They were tied with Black Licorice Divine Twine.
You Colour My World
I made a card by cutting individual pencils from the 'Pencil it in' paper and the '4 x 6 Horizontal Journalling Cards' paper.
The white card blank was covered with Brand New Day paper mounted onto Peacock Bazzill. I added lettering using the stickers and then the pencils. I drew round the pencils and letters as before, and finished off with some more enamel dots.
Thanks for looking.
