Hello everyone! It is Jennifer here on the blog to share a layout I created using the Ribbon Mini Shaker Shape! November is lung cancer awareness month so I thought I would use the shaker for a page all about my sweet angel mother. My mom passed away from lung cancer a little over 13 years ago and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her dearly. I think creating pages such as these are therapeutic and healing.
After adhering my background paper down, I used the 5x9 Circle Dots Patterns Stencil with three coordinating Distress Oxide Inks. I blended my inks around where I would place my photo.
I set my page aside to work on my Mini Shaker Shape. Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I affixed patterned paper to the chipboard base of the shaker. I trimmed away excess paper with scissors as well as used my sanding stick to smooth the edges.
For the top and two insides frames, I painted them with white acrylic paint as shown. I chose white because it is the ribbon color for lung cancer awareness.
I added small beaded sequins to the inside of my shaker after adhering my two center frames. I then adhered the acrylic overlay and clipped my pieces together while the adhesive dried.
I then adhered the top frame and added a sentiment die cut shape to the center. You can also see a small wood heart I added as well.
Along the border of my two patterns, I layered stickers, die cuts, and hand punched circles using foam dots on some of the elements.
Here is a close up of the Distress Oxide Ink with the stencil along with some of the embellishments mixed in.
As I get older, the less I like my handwriting! So, I decided to type out my journaling on my typewriter and white cardstock. I adhered each piece with my Beacon 3-in-1.
