Captured Layout

Hello, It's Karen here to share my love of baby pink & black. When the Design Team was told our focus this month is on all things Girly, I was thrilled because I knew I had the perfect Robin's Nest papers & embellishments in mind. There are very few photos I have of myself that I feel show how I see myself but when I saw this photo, I thought finally a photo of the real the perfect title for this layout is "Captured." 

Robin's Nest Supplies: Rosy Diamond Cardstock (reverse side pink spots), Obsidian Diamond Dew Drops, Coral Diamond Dew Drops, Black Dew Drops, Neon Pink Mini Dew Drops, Dew Dew Glue, Rosy Stripe Cardstock, Girl Crown Glittered (reverse side stripe), Black Glitter Cardstock, Black Daisy Glitter Stripe Specialty Paper, Pink Glitter Journaling Blocks, Rosy Straw, Princess Glitter Word Titles, Doily Die Cuts

Other Supplies: photos (1) 4x4" (2) 2.5x3" (2) 1.75x2", black cardstock, die cut frame, Lace Border Clear Stamp (Santoro), transparency, StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad (Tsukineko), sponge applicator, Archival Jet Black Ink Pad (Ranger)

1. Cut a 2.5" and 6.5" wide strip of Rosy Diamond Cardstock. Carefully, tear the long 1 edge of both pieces. Next, apply a hint of color to the torn edge by using a sponge applicator to apply black ink. Adhere the 2.5" dotty strip to the top edge of Rosy Diamond Cardstock and attach the 6.5" dotty strip to the bottom of the Rosy Diamond Cardstock.

2. Gently distress the edge of the photo on 3 sides with a paper distresser and tear the lower edge. Next, matte the photo with Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock (reverse stripe).  Place the 3 photos slightly overlapping at the corners diagonally across the upper layout.

3. Next, assemble a cluster of pattern papers to place under the main photo using Rosy Stripe Cardstock, Black Daisy Glitter Stripe, Girl Crown Glittered, and Black Glitter Cardstock.  Tear and ink some of the lower edges.

4.   Use permanent black ink to stamp a lace frame onto transparency and layer it under the main photo. Then, cut a small doily die in half and attach one vertically under the left side of the top photo.  Adhere the other half under the right side of the bottom photo.  Fussy cut a Pink Glitter Journaling label leaving a narrow border.  Next, cut it in half vertically and adhere one piece to the left of the main photo.  Lastly, add 2 small photos (1.75x2") to the lower left corner with a cluster of paper scraps.

5. Cut a variety of sizes of diamond shapes following the diamond design on the pattern paper. Cut out the center of three diamonds to make diamond shaped frames. Matte three of the diamonds onto black cardstock. Embellish the paper diamonds with black & coral Diamond Dew Drops.

6. Finally, embellish the layout with a diagonal scattering of paper diamonds.  Add Diamond Dew Drops in clusters of four, as well as, some singles. Weave the Rosy Straw around a circular die cut frame.  Trim off the excess, apply a piece of tape to join the ends.  Next, embellish the frame with Black Round Dew Drops and Neon Pink Mini Dew Drops and attach it over the main photo.

8. Lastly, fussy cut the word "Captured" from Princess Glitter Word Titles and adhere it under the lower left photo cluster.
