I wanted to show you a scrapbook page a did a couple of months ago, for a challenge on UKS. I thought I had put it on here but I hadn't so here is the info and pics taken from my gallery on UKS...
These are pictures taken of Abi, my daughter, taken in 2006. I’ve actually scrapped a larger version of the top picture before. But I do love these pics in particular as they capture the essence of Abi just before she got to an age where she got more camera savvy. Now she poses very well for pictures, then I could just snap away without her being so bothered. Abi is a real dreamer, loves nature and animals and is very into art...
Taking my two pictures I positioned then on the cardstock with dst.
Before using the Swiss Dot cardstock I cut around the edge to make it slightly smaller than 12x12.
I then marked the dot cardstock where the pictures were and cut out the areas slightly within the marks so that the photos showed through.
I then sewed the Dot cardstock on top of the pink, and sewed around the photos twice. One sewn edge was to hold the photo secure, and the outside sewn edge was to create a frame outside of the photo.
I then carefully cut, with a blade, inbetween the sewn frame to create a gap to show off the pink cardstock underneath. Emphasise further by curling back the edges of each frame.
Using a mixture of the two K&CO Madeline papers I cut out flowers and swirls and added them to the layout using a mixture of dst and sticky pads to create lift in some areas.
I then added an appropriate rub-on to the journaling panel and put into place.
Added all the little extras like the butterfly and the roses and then I dotted some crystals around too.
The lace created an additional layer with some old book paper on the bottom left.
