November Inspiration with Julie
Good morning, good morning
I love the scrap lift theme for this month so I decided to do another layout
and this is the layout I have lifted.
It is by Mandy Melville from November 2016.
I loved the simplicity of the layout
You will find her blog post here
Here is my layout
I turned the layout on its side as my photo was portrait orientation
while the one on Mandy’s layout was landscape orientation.
As the photo is of my Grand-Daughter in one of her theatrical performances
I wanted to have lots of sparkle on this layout.
The photo started life 6″ x 6″ but I trimmed it down to 3 3/4″ x 6″
I did not want to waste this beautiful paper so I cut a 1″ frame from it.
This gives me the centre section to use on other parts of the layout.
I trimmed a piece of white cardstock
to 11 1/2″ square to use as my background.
To add some interest to my background I used
The Nuvo Drops do not stand out from the white cardstock very much
but they do add lots of texture and sparkle.
Next I used my Prima Stitched Rectangle stamp and Versafine Onyx Black ink
to stamp some straight stitched lines randomly on to the background.
I used Hero Arts Infinity Rectangles die to cut six assorted sized rectangles from the gold glitter card.
I cut “The Season”
patterned paper to 6 1/2″ x 5″ and 3/4″ x 2″ and
patterned paper to 4 1/2″ x 4″ and 3/4″ x 2 1/2″
I cut a fish tail in one of the narrow ends of the two smallest pieces of patterned paper.
I inked the edges of all of the patterned and glitter card.
I filed the edges of my photo with an emery board and matted it onto some black cardstock
Before adding it to the patterned paper cluster,
I attached some chipboard to the back of the photo mat.
on the top and black
on the bottom.
You can see how I did this in the process video below.
Now that I have all of my elements ready I attached them to my layout background
I used my Uniball Mico black pen to draw a double scribbly border around my page
As a final sparkly touch I sprinkled 28 Lilac Lane gold sequins
onto the layout and attached them using liquid glue and my Silhouette Pick Me Up tool.
Here is my process video
I hope you enjoy watching it.
Even though the month is nearly over I hope you get to squeeze in one more scrap lifted layout to share with us all.
Till next time
