Hello and welcome to another edition of "alexandra's Sunday scrapbook with Penny Black inc." As some of you may already know, a big part of my scrapbook is devoted to capturing the everyday life. To do that, I keep two kinds of "Project Life", one is the traditional 12x12 with Becky Higgins' page protectors and the other one is also a weekly summary of our life but it's scrapped on an 8x8" and it's called "2012 in 52 pages".
Today, i'd like to share how I've used Penny Black stamps for WEEKS 44&45...
Bonjour, comme chaque dimanche, j'ai le plaisir de partager un projet scrap réalisé avec les produits Penny Black inc.
Vous le savez sans doute déjà, le soucis de préserver le quotidien occupe une grande place dans mon scrap et pour se faire je conduis deux types de "Project Life". Le traditionnel 30*30 avec pochettes Becky Higgins et puis un format plus petit , le 8 pouces qui s'appelle "2012 en 52 pages".
Aujourd'hui, j'aimerais vous montrer la façon dont j'ai utilisé des tampons pour les pages des SEMAINES 44 et 45.
For this page, I've used slapstick/Cling 40-111 "breezy"with gold ink (ColorBox) and gold embossing powder. I really like how the branch brings a sense of movement to the page and also directs the eye toward the journaling. That journaling is typed on a shipping tag which slides in and out from underneath the turquoise paper and the photo collage.
Here, i've used stamp1766M "Scroll Background" not as an accent but as my main and only paper. I used the" resist - emboss technique" for that which means that I first stamped the image with resist ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. Then I heat embossed it with opaque white embossing powder and blended various shades of blue distress inks (Ranger) to create that aqua blue background. I drew my inspiration from that tiny square picture with a bit of the sky. I like how creating your own background paper with that technique gives depth to the paper and how that aqua makes the bits of red just pop! Here too, the journaling is printed onto the tag and that tag can be pulled in and out from underneath the photo-collage.
