I was going through my MANY scrapbook albums to select a layout to share with you today as I did not have time last Saturday to scrapbook. I came across this awesome layout I made in August 2014 which I absolutely love.
Every time I look at this it makes me smile....not only the sweet memories of that weekend with my grand-kids or the cuteness of my granddaughter Brielle in this photo....but the fun I had making this layout.
I took a white piece of 12 x 12 cardstock and painted the design in bright colors and let it dry completely ( waiting was the hard part) .
Next I cut the sheet into strips....I think they were 1 3/4" strips.
Then I put them through the distresser to give them added interest and the raggedy look.
I glued them in place on the background cardstock and let them dry completely.
Then I ran them through my sewing machine with dark thread for even more contrast.
A gorgeous picture and a few embellishments and project life cards completed this page.
Yes it was time consuming....but even now...four years later it still brings a huge smile to my face....and makes me want to try another layout using this technique....hmmmm just got an idea......perhaps this Saturday....LOL.
