A little Extra from the March Papermaze Kit

Hello All, Lynn here today, I had a fair amount left over from the March Papermaze kit and thought it would be good to try to create an extra layout. So in between my usual two posts, here is my additional layout.

This layout shows a photo taken in Washington last December, when we visited the  Smithsonian National Museum of American History. We saw this amazing exhibit - Dorothy's ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 film of The Wizard of Oz. Several pairs of the slippers were mad for the movie. These are actually a mismatched pair. White pumps were covered with red fabric, painted red soles, sequins, bows made of stiff cotton and adorned beads and rhinestones. This pair has felt adhered to the bottom to muffle Garland's footsteps as she danced on the yellow brick road. 

For a reminder of what is in this kit please see the previous blog post.

The base for this layout is the sheet of
Simple Stories - So Happy Together collection - Time Together from the kit. Then using the Rainbow cut file by Paige Taylor Evans I cut the parts from white Bazzill. I used Distress Ink Pads to colour the pieces of the rainbow and the edges of the clouds. Then I die cut lettering - with red metallic card I cut the words 'Ruby Slippers' and from black and white Bazzill I cut the words 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow'. 

I mounted my photo onto White and then Pear Bazzill. My journalling was printed in red onto white Bazzill, then I punched down one side with a spiral binding punch. Everything was arranged carefully on the page and then glued into place.

Finally I added two flowers from the kit.

Thanks for looking, back with more from the kit next week.

What a great page Lynn, really interesting reading the journalling about the shoes and the felt base! The rainbow is lovely and I really like the idea of using foil card to create the title xx
