Welcome to our new blog and our September Cyber Crop 🙂
If you have checked out our monthly challenges, you know that we are letting our favourite movies inspire our challenges.
Challenge 1 – Use a Movie Quote
I would like you to use a famous quote/line from a movie. You can use it as inspiration or any way you wish.
I have used it as my title.
If you can’t think of one you might get some ideas from Google.
I have chosen “Here’s looking at you kid” from Casablanca
which was released in November of 1942 and starred
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
My photo is 6″ x 6″ and is of my Grand-daughter when
she was in one of her school holiday productions.
The papers I have used are from Coco Vanilla’s These Days collection
I have used black cardstock for the 1/16″ frame around my layout.
The background of the layout is “These Days” which I have trimmed down to 11 3/4″ square.
The 1″ strips are cut from
The Good Life
some of them I have used the reverse side as well. There are 9 strips across the page.
These were laid across the top of the layout so they sat at various levels along the bottom.
Once I was happy with the positioning of the strips I tore the bottom of each strip
and inked the edges with a black ink cube
To add some interest to the background I used an assortment of
star stamps from my stash and stamped randomly using
Distress Oxide Ink
The strips were then attached to the layout using double sided tape.
I created some splatter on the background using Black Magic Glimmermist.
I filed the edges of my photo with an emery board and then attached
it to a black mat that measures 6 1/8″ square.
This was then attached to a piece of scrap chipboard.
I attached the photo to the layout so it was approximately
centred on the strips and about 1/2″ from the top of the layout.
To embellish the layout I used my Kaisercraft DD216 Scribble Star die
and cut three each of black, peach and sage plain cardstock.
I also used some Ideology Film Strip Ribbon on the right hand side of the photo.
A little more detail was added to the background using a star stencil and Nuvo Drops.
I used Nuvo Jewel Drops – Sea Breeze and Nuvo Vintage Drops – Peachy Keen
with I applied using my palette knife.
The Sea Breeze is almost clear but it is shiny and can be seen.
The title for the page was cut from black cardstock on my Scan N Cut. The font is Cairo.
The title is of course, the line from the movie.
Here is my process video
Till next time
