This is my last project of the month using the September Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit.
This is quite a fun layout, its still very much shabby chic in style but has a fun edge to it with the photo and words.
Holly was on her Brownie Holiday and we were visiting a dinosaur park in the Isle of Wight. These eggs the children could get into as part of the interactive experience for them... all great fun and a great photo opportunity!
Here is a photo process tutorial showing you how I created this layout.....
I used three 12x12 background papers. The bottom one I kept at 12x12in, the next two I trimmed so they were a cm smaller on all sides then the one underneath. They were all heavily distressed and shabby rips torn into the sides in places.
My photo is layered on a piece of patterned paper also with torn edges. At this point I hadn't stuck the photo down.
Having decided where my photo was going I added some texture paste and stencilling in the same area so that the stencilling shows around my photo.
I then added the photo and started to build up with a journal note cut from the 12x12 papers and some of the ephemera flower pieces. These are really pretty and eye catching with the foils on them, they really catch the light.
Next I added the flowers, a couple of 'word' ephemera and some resin dragonflies.
The green pearl strip I cut up into pieces and added them to my flower clusters wit some of the single pearls.
I added some detail to the dragonflies with the Silver Nuvo Crystal.
And lastly splashed over some watered down gesso to finish.
