Blue Awning

Way back in June I posted Sneak peaks of these Layouts. They are from the Advanced course that I have teaching of at Scrapbook Dreams. I'm glad to be able to share these with you now. Personally I loved designing these layouts, this range "Blue Awning" from K&Company was fantastic to work with .Hope you like them.

The Little Man on a Sunny winters day(Love his smile).I used a variety of different punches for this layout, a Scallop for the outside edges, an intricate punch for the inner PP ( I then placed coloured cardstock behind so that the detail could be seen),finishing those edges with an fancy corner punch to finish the edges of.All the PP was inked to add to the earthiness of the papers.I cut sections of the PP tucking on the side of the Photo and the chipboard swirls were inked. The lace was adhered to the side of the PP and also bunched up in the bottom corner with an crushed silk ribbon held together with a gold buckle.

I had this crazy idea of a see-through door on a Layout for ages and when I was starting this design I knew his range would be perfect for it.I took photos of the Layout outside so you could see that there is an area that can be looked through. The door consists of two frames from the Printed paper and one from cardstock with a sheet of transparency adhered in the middle.The door opens up revealing another two sets of photos (photos on the back of the frame and then again on the transparency.With the rest of the layout I either tore the edges or cut out the patterns from the PP, overlapping them as I went along. The "Memories" title PP was adhered to cardstock,lifted and held in place with the threaded string and eyelets.
