JBS Sunday Star Oct. Sketch & CCG #210

Friday, October 14, 2011

Hey, ya'll!  Just popping in to share one more layout this week, before we're off camping again this weekend.  Hooray for the return of fall weather!  It's been a long, tiresome week with school and a bit of sass from my eight-year-old.  Plus, I've got lots to get ready, for our trip, still.  So, I'm just going to get right to it.
I started this layout by trimming off a 2" strip from both of my base papers; adding it to the top of the opposite; dressing the space between them with punched strips of rust, wavy, patterned paper; and machine stitching, with gray-threaded, straight stitches, to either side of the paper connections.
I then punched 1-3/8" circles from color-coordinating, patterned papers and adhered them, in their respective locations, across the horizontal lengths of both pages.  That preps both sides for their individual elements.  So, let's take a little closer look at the left side first.
I cut a postcard, tag shape from Very Vanilla cardstock; distressed its edges with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; stamped the "POST CARD" square, as well as the lines, in Really Rust ink; adhered it, haphazardly, near the center of the page; and dressed up the punched circle, near its top corner, with a brown, damask, chipboard button and a wood bobbin, both of which were laced with hemp twine and backed with a green, leaf, trinket pin.
I then placed my pictures and embellished their bottom edges with a collection of goodies, including a snippet from a flower trim, backed with several, hemp twine bows; a "SEEK ABUNDANCE" patch; a bird, Bingo chip; and several stamped pieces.
The dogwoods were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on Whisper White cardstock; colored with Really Rust, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive inks and a blender pen; hand cut out; and partially adhered, with foam tape, to the left of the bottom left photograph.
I then stamped several, postage stamp images.  The first was stamped, in Ivory White, acrylic paint, on clear cardstock, hand cut out, and used to back the previously mentioned, bird, Bingo chip.  A couple of stamped, in Old Olive ink, on Whisper White cardstock, and hand-cut leaves were then tucked partially under that stamp, as well as the flower trim.  The bird stamp was stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, on Very Vanilla cardstock; hand cut and punched out; distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; glittered; and adhered, with foam tape, to the top right of the flower trim.  It was then flanked with a stamped, in White ink, on an ink-distressed, chipboard stamp, stamp image, which was filled in with the stamped, in White ink, partial, "LOVE" title, as well as the completed, "Always" title, which was stamped, in Really Rust ink, on Very Vanilla cardstock, hand cut and punched out, framed with Really Rust cardstock, distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, and laced with a length of hemp twine.
A mini clothespin completes the left side of the layout...
and turns our direction to the right, which begins with a collage of photographs, framed with Really Rust cardstock and adhered in the bottom left corner of the page itself.
One of the punched circles was then backed with a brown, damask, chipboard button and topped with a wood bobbin, before being laced with hemp twine.
I then created my cluster of elements, including a selectively cut, patterned, paper, music piece; another snippet of flower trim, which was also given a couple of those stamped leaves from above; and a couple more stamped images.  The leafy postage stamp was stamped, in Old Olive ink, on Very Vanilla cardstock; hand cut and punched out; distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; and glittered.  The dogwood image was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on Whisper White cardstock; colored in the same way as the larger image above; hand cut out; backed with a trio of hemp twine bows; and adhered, in its respective location, with foam tape.
A brown, mini label, filled in with the Oct. 31, 2010 date, completes the look.
