Ella Blue by GCD Studios arrived at the shop last week. WOW. That is all we can say. A Vintage collection like none we had seen before. Of course we had to do a layout to show it off!!
Enmarc Bow Master and added a VERY old MM brad.
I then took the big butterfly from the Celebr8 range (distributed by The Wholesaler - did you know they have an online shooping facility?)and covered it with Cloudy Blue Paint Dabber. I then took Blue Glass Embossing powder and randomly added it to the butterfly. I used my heatgun to melt it. I then took some Espresso Alcohol ink, and dabbed it randomly all over the butterfly. Added some Distress Vintage Photo Stickles to some areas afterwards, and let it dry. For the title I used really cheap W & M chipboard letters, carefully embossed with Copper UTEE and Blue Glass. I just wanted a little bit of the Blue Glass to come through, and this took a little bit of time. But the end result is worth it!! I did the same with the swirl at the top of the butterfly and under the tag. I just matted the photo 3 times on cardstock, distressing the edges roughly with my Tim Holtz Tonic Distresser. I find his works the best if you are working with smaller pieces of paper and also thinner paper. The light cardstock is actually a Colormates Light Fairy Tale Pink! And there you have it!! We have all 12 papers in the range, selling only at R8! The papers are all double sided. Any ideas of what you would create with this range? Watch this space - we will have another layout soon - just to show you that you don't just have to do Vintage layouts! All products used are available at Scrapbook Studio Jeffreys Bay
