Happy Friday everyone! Today I finished the 2nd page of a 2 page layout for my cousin's wedding album. The 1st page I uploaded for an Issue Challenge at Club CK last week. The challenge was to use a paper airplane and/or washi tape. I decided to just go on my own with using washi tape. I used it in the corners & on the pinwheels.
I lined up 3 strips of washi tape on white cardstock. I put washi tape on both sides of the cardstock on 2 of the 3 pinwheels. I then punched a square with a 1 1/2" square punch from Creative Memories. I took a scissors & cut from each corner diagonally about 3/4 of the way to the middle point. I just eyed up the middle. Then I folded the same corner of each cut to the middle point. I took my paper piercer & poked the middle point. I kept the points down with a finger & fastened a brad to the middle with the points under the brad. You dont even have to use glue.
I glued the lace on both bottom corners of the photo mat & also glued the pinwheels to the lace. The white foam Thickers were inked with Distress Ink, Color Wash spray & Stickles. I tried getting the length of the washi tape the same measurement for the corners but that was harder to do than I thought it would be. The white photo mat is from a wedding scrapbooking kit that my cousin received as a wedding gift. I will be incorporating the kit with supplies that I have also chosen for the album.
On the 2nd layout, I decided to use washi tape on the corners again. I cut an orangish colored piece of paper for a big mat. Then decided to mat every photo with pink cardstock. I decided to place the pictures more across the page instead of going down so it would go with the 1st page.
This week's challenge is to use itty bitty pieces on your project. This idea comes from the Creating Keepsakes magazine in the Sept./Oct. issue. My itty bitty pieces of embellishments are what I am using on my layout. Number 9 in the magazine says to group or layer a collection of teeny embellishments to accent or frame your photos. I used 3 black pearls plus the small pearl accent between the 2 photos at the top. I also used 4 black pearls on the bottom part of the orange mat. The black pearl flourish at the bottom of the page also came in the same package from Prima. The journaling at the top of the page are the names of the Wedding Party. The journal tag is also from the wedding kit & I inked the edges. I accented it with a distress marker & stickles. I added Prima centers to the silver flowers.The black stems for the flowers were cut apart from a ZVA flourish. That was the most time consuming part of this layout. Here are some close ups.
