Hello, dear Robin's Nest friends! Irit is here with my new January post.
My new post today is all about using " whatever you got" and make a nice page with it. And here is a story . I got a small shipment of goodies from Robin's Nest- all green. Lot of paper, stickers, rub ons- but everything in green. So I challenged myself to scrap a page with most possible number of products from this shipment and I think I made it!
Brown Herringbone cardstock, Hunter Green with glitter cardstock, Clover border paper, Gateaway stripe paper, Daisy stripe Rain Forrest paper, Woodsy, Birds and Switzerland stickers,Dragonflies and Time Rub- ons, Green ribbon, Men Dew Drops, Green glitter journaling tag, White alphabet.
And now to work:
1. Cut your Herringbone cardstock to 11*11'', round corners, distress it a bit with sand paper block and glue to your green glitter basic cardstock. Hand cut the borders from Clover Border paper and arrange it on the top and on the bottom as shown.
2. Make two circles from the same paper, use the backside and adhere the circles as shown. Trim the edges and glue the left edge on the left upper side.
3. Glue your photo over the circles. Add 2 strips from Gateaway and Daisy papers as shown over and under the photo.
4. Now the fun begins: add stickers, rub- ons, ribbon, dew drops and be a bit crazy. I added some rub-ons over the photo, a clock over the ribbon etc. Add your title and as white was too bright, I covered it a bit with distressed glitter. Add 3d glaze over the bird sticker and some over the trees for more texture and interest. Write your journalling.
And the last thing: don't afraid to alter thing: alter rub-ons, letters, stickers, paper. Sometimes less is more, sometimes- more is what you need.
See you again in two weeks with my new projects!
