Hello crafty peeps!
This is my last project for this month using the August kit for Tres Jolie Kit Club!
I have really enjoyed creating with this kit. The papers were lovely and I enjoyed all the fussy cutting that I was able to do with them.
This layout is kind of a double page to go with my previous layout earlier in the month which can be found on this link http://shabbypapers.blogspot.com/2018/08/mintay-layout-for-tres-jolie-kits.html
I used the same Mintay papers but swopped the colours from pink with blue highlights on the other layout to Blue with pink highlights on this one. I also used the same torn edged border but turned it to vertical instead of horizontal. The same flowers/colours/designs were copied onto this layout and obviously a double page about my Mum as she is in both photos.
These photos were taken as we sat in the garden talking on a lovely summers day a couple of months ago.
Here it is....
I have a photo step by step process for you to follow to see how I created this layout.
I used 4 mists in total. The first three colours I splattered using the nozzle removed from the bottle and shaking the nozzle and tube over the paper and the 4th, the blue chalk mist I sprayed normally to get more coverage. I tipped the paper up vertically after spraying to get the mist to run down the paper.
After drying I applied some texture paste with a stencil.
I inked the torn edges of the feature border paper and layered the blue lace from the kit underneath one side.
I added a strip of another contrasting paper under the other side, also torn and inked.
My photo I layered on.... yes you've guessed it, a torn paper layer and inked the edges.
I chose 4 journal cards, distressed the edges and inked
And then arranged them around my photo using double sided tape.
I then cut some fussy cutting out of the 12x12 Mintay papers and inked the edges.
I backed these with a small piece of cardboard to lift them of the papers and journal cards to add some depth to the design.
These were then slotted into my photo and journal card layers.
This arrangement was then stuck onto the background papers again with some cardboard behind it to lift of the background papers.
I added a fussy cut floral piece to the top right corner of the photo again backed with cardboard.
Next came the flower cluster..... a simple one with not too many flowers.
Add two smaller blue flowers to the main structure of the feature flower and the 2 leaves.
And then fill in with the smaller flowers.
I then finished off by adding some of he very pretty dazzler gems.
