Good day everyone!!!! I am very happy that I finally completed my "Beautiful Faces" album. Below are the remaining 3 pages. I decided not to add quotes to the pages. I decided that down the road I may want to use this album using personal pictures so I adhered the pictures so that they can be easily removed. That way I can even give it as a gift to someone. Anyway, here are the remaining pages.
For each page I did paper layering and added embellishments as shown. I decided to keep them simple but pretty. A couple of them I textured the background with modeling paste and a stencil.
Below is showing the inside front cover and a partial view of the album when it is partially opened.
And also today I am sharing with you a layout that I created using vine and flower stamps to create my background. I first traced the size of my picture onto white cardstock lightly with a pencil. I then stamped outwards from each side of the traced box.
Below is how I started. My acrylic stamp set had several different vines and different sized flowers. So I started at the top of the box, in the middle, and stamped a vine, then worked around that first vine. I just kept going, fanning my images out and around the picture box.
When I was finished the stamping I did add some colour to the leaves with an ink pad and wet paint brush. I made a paper collage for behind my picture, popped the picture up onto the layout with pop dots. I added strips of paper coming out from both sides of the picture. I added some very tiny flowers in and around the stamped vines along with small pearls, then added the other flowers as shown around the picture.
Below is a closeup of the stamped area at the top of the picture.
This was actually easier then I thought it would be. Try it - great way to get creative and create your own background. I hope you will give it a try.
Until next time, this is Donna wishing you a great day.
