Picture Perfect

Inspiration comes from a lot of places when you are a scrapbooker, from a cereal box to an advertisement on TV.  Nicole Petersen Design is the queen of making something new look old and doing her make and takes all last weekend inspired me to make my own new/old 12x12 page.
There were many steps to making this page. 

First steps for the background paper
  • Ink edges with Tim Holtz Distressing ink. I used green and blue colors 
  • Spray the whole page with a shimmering spray.
  • Dry with heat gun.
  • Spray back of paper with water saturate then wad up into a ball and then flatten out.
  • Iron paper flat 
  • Use a light brown distressed ink over the entire page (I have to say I wasn't too keen on this out come and may skip this step next time.
  • Stamp flourished images on left side of paper. I used blue distressing ink.

These flowers that I made are super easy but really hard to describe how to make you really need to see it in action. I purchased some cream voil fabric and  cut into graduating round circles (They don't have to be perfectly round circles) I sewed a button with some beads in the center and then sprayed with a blue glimmer mist and then put some green distressing ink over the top and spritzed with water. Then the magic happened. I hit it with my heat gun and the fabric melted on the edges and made these super easy and beautiful flowers.

The trim on the bottom is something I purchased from Nicole Petersen Design. 
 I stamped a beautiful label. I haven't glued everything down yet and I don't even have a pictures to put here yet. I am thinking about using Mod Podge and put it on a canvas. The pictures will come in May. I am hoping to get a good picture at an event I have planned.

I hope this has inspired you to use some or all of the techniques to create you own page.

PS......I just sold one of my Vingtage Suitcase Wedding Card Holders on Etsy and they are going to use it as a prop for a magazine cover. Excited to say the least.

Happy Day Y'all
