For this page I decided to use the cinema theme (“matinee” sheet). I had these crazy “selfie” photos of my youngest and I wearing 3D cinema glasses. We love to go to the cinema (not only because I love children’s movies, but above all because I love seeing my youngest’s delight when he watches the film) and so I’ve got quite a couple of photos like these to scrap. This collection was just what I was waiting for!
I started with one of the wonderful Snag ‘em stamps belonging to this collection: “movie”. Not long ago on the Creating Keepsakes blog I saw an example of a stamp being used on a piece of burlap and I knew I wanted to try that technique too. I think it’s awesome how it turned out! I love the extra texture the burlap adds to the page and I love the beautiful crisp image that I managed to stamp!
Next I wanted to try some of the “mysterious” Imaginisce milk paints (well, mysterious to me at least) and chose the yellow one. I shook a bit of the dry powder in a cup and added a bit of water (I used one part of powder on one part of water) and used a paint brush to stir it a bit, so the powder dissolved. Then I chose a Tim Holtz stencil and got started. I love love love how this turned out!!! It dried pretty quickly (I did use my heat tool a bit) and when I rubbed it afterwards it didn’t come off or anything! It’s awesome!
A while ago a magazine asked me to scrap a layout with a “bold line of embellishments”. This threw me a bit, as I had never done this before. But of course I gave it a try and I really loved the result! So when I saw the many fabulous die-cuts and stickers in this collection I knew straight away what I was going to do: create a layout with a “bold line of embellishments”! Apart from the die-cuts and stickers provided, I also created a couple of brads myself (using Imaginisce’s awesome I-Top tool) as I just wanted to use more of those awesome “b-side” designs. I’m in love the with black and white chequered paper! I really love the end result and I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
