Hello once again fellow scrappers! Kay here presenting a Fall themed page that I recently finished. It's no secret that Fall is my absolute favorite season. The crisp weather, the apple cider, the pumpkin pie, muffins & scones--the pumpkin lattes!! It's all good! Plus Fall has another meaningful significance for me--it's also the season that I was married 5 years ago. So that's exactly what this page is about. Here is my husband & I celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. We decided to go back to where we celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary--to a quaint little Bed & Breakfast in Pocono Pines, PA.
First, a close up of the banner. I've used alcohol inks to give my banner some color--on a few of the banners I applied drops of alcohol inks directly from the bottle onto my banner. I highlighted the edges of each banner with dots of gold Stickles. Finally, with my crop-a-dile I punched 2 holes in each banner, inserted eyelets into each hole, strung a bit of green ribbon through the holes and a piece of brown burlap twine to hold my banner together.
Step 1: With strong scissors (I used Tim Holtz's Tonic Studios scissors) cut out a piece from the Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic Sheet that will be used for your flower die
Step 5: This step can actually be optional if you wish. You can leave your flower as is or add more texture to it by dry embossing it. I decided to give it a bit more texture by dry embossing it. So I once again ran it through my Big Shot but this time with an embossing folder
Here's your finished flower! How you finish it is really up to you. I decided to bend each petal up and added a pre-made organza flower in the center. I added dots of Bisque Liquid Pearls to the edges to define the edges a bit more & finally added a gold button in the center. You can add a mulberry flower in the center or you can do several layers of an acrylic flower & make a flower entirely out of acrylic. It's all up to you & your creativity!
You can find more details & close ups of this layout on my blog. Enjoy the rest of the week!
