Hello everyone, how are you all? I hope you are all being creative and enjoying the new freedom we have recently been given.
Today I have my second inspiration for this special month of celebrations. You may remember from my previous post that this month celebrates 100 post on the Country View Challenge blog and as a special thank you to all you lovelies we are giving away two prizes. To be entered twice you need to pick one of the teams makes and use it to inspire your make. You must actually copy some part, for example I've used die cuts on mine so if I was your inspiration you must you die cuts and in your blog post write about what inspired you. To be entered into the second draw you must also leave a comment on each of the teams blogs. I'm so looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for this draw,
So for this make I'm back to my junk journal with this double page.
Below are the first two pages
So I gathered some of my ephemera and started to plan my pages.
I wasn't sure how I wanted this to go so started by cutting up pieces and auditioning them on my page until I felt it looked right. I played around for about an hour, moving pieces until you get that, yep that's right feeling!
Once I was satisfied I started to stick each item down. Some I inked before sticking and others I did once stuck down.
I decided to go with blue brown and a pop of orange for my colour scheme using Distress inks as I wanted it translucent to allow the images to shine through.
you can see below that I used a mix of tickets, adverts flowers birds and writing all with a vintage feel.once everything was stuck down and dry I added ink in places to add interest.
I decided I wanted to use a pocket to house a tag so set about creating the tag using the same method of cutting and sticking chosen pieces which have been inked. I chose a large butterfly to bring the page and pocket together.
Next I worked on the tag, yep you know, in exactly the same way. I started with this Tag
Covered it in ephemera and then added my die cut 100
I edged the tag in ink and then added some ribbon. Finally, as I have no number stamps I used Walnut ink and a two different kinds of dip pens I added my 100s on the page. lets take a final look.
I hope you have enjoyed this month as I know I have. good luck in the draws and see you next month.
