Hello there! HELEN here again with a layout about my 2 teenage sons.
They have a love/hate relationship like most siblings but when it comes
down to the wire they are always there for each other & loyal to the core.
I used some Purple Pumpkin doilies, which I inked with dark brown ink
I mounted onto a Purple Pumpkin doily die-cut circle, to create my own
I clustered the fabric buttons & doilies together with some metal findings,
flowers and die-cuts. Push the buttons under some of the items too so
that you create some different, interesting partial circle shapes too!
I painted the central area of my layout with gesso before I began placing
my elements. I love the vignette effect that it created. I use an old credit
card instead of a paint brush. Cheaper, less clean up & a better effect too!
See the punched strip across the bottom of the photo? That is actually ALSO from Purple Pumpkin! It's a film strip die-cut that I cut up and used as a punched strip instead. I added some Burnt Sienna and Dark Brown ink to it for a more 3D look.
Don't forget to play along with our January sketch this month & have a lovely day!
