This is my final post for The Robin's Nest, and I would like to thank the entire team, coordinators, and blog followers. :) I've really enjoyed my DT term but I didn't reapply for the team because I need to completely focus on my education this year. Thank you to everyone for allowing me to share my creativity; I hope you've been inspired!
I have one final scrapbook layout to share today:
When I started this page my goal was layers. layers, layers! (as usual) Layered behind the photo is a piece of classified cardstock, a piece of glitter pine cardstock (there is also a strip of this paper at the bottom of the page), and smoke cardstock.
The title was cut from vellum using my diecutting machine and I splattered a bit of white mist across the layout for interest.
The dew drops really complete the page and tie all the colours together. I used metallic gold dew drops, parisian dew drops, and soil dew drops.
I layered a feather, gold leaves, tissue paper, a vintage postage stamp, and a venice clippy. The leaves were plain white to begin with, too plain for the look I was going for, so I covered them in gold embossing powder and heat embossed them. Yes, you can heat emboss things other than paper! They're very shiny and have a great texture in real life.
This flower took all of 3 minutes to make. Just cut a few lopsided circles from fabric, layer them over top of each other and randomly sew through the middles with a needle and thread (make sure to keep the thread tight so that the layers bunch up and ruffle). A gold dew drop completes the flower perfectly. I love dew drops for flower centres; they're so simple and pretty.
The leaves are diecut from kraft cardstock and the pink flower is just a generic dollar store brand.
Thank you for visiting the blog today, and Happy Holidays!!
