MY FAIR LADY COLLECTION – LAYOUT – BY LISA-MARIE WATLING

MATERIALS:

Fabscraps C94 001 Lady Rose

Fabscraps C94 008 Lady Pearl

Fabscraps DC94 003 Chippie (Natural Beauty)

Fabscraps MC94 001A Carders Pack

Fabscraps DS068 Stencil (floral)

Dark purple cardstock

Dark purple and lilac chalk

Pink and purple glitter glue

Tombow

Glossy accents

Foam tape

 

METHOD:

  • The 12 x 12 inch dark purple cardstock will form your base. Cut C94 008 (floral side up) down to measure 11 ¼ x 11 ¼ inches.  Distress the edges and adhere to your cardstock.
  • Cut a pennant with the two strips you’ve cut from C94 008, distress the edges and adhere them as shown in the layout (4.5 inches from the bottom right and 6 ¼ inches from the bottom on the right of your page)
  • Select various pieces from your carders pack to create a layered effect, as can be seen on the layout. BEFORE you adhere your layered ‘pack’ to your base page, pencil out where you want it to be placed and then create a chalked background using your DS068 floral stencil
  • Adhere your pack to your base page using foam tape
  • Fussy cut a few flowers from C94 001 and arrange and adhere them around your layered pack
  • Adhere your photograph to a piece of dark purple cardstock and adhere to your pack using foam tape
  • Colour your title chippie with dark purple and then coat with Glossy Accents. Once dry, cut from its frame and adhere it below your photograph / layered ‘pack’
  • Finish off by shading your stencilled flowers (dark purple pencil) and highlighting your fussy cut flowers with glitter glue

Instructions:

  1. Use a decorative punch all around the 12” C94 004. Using brown ink, apply the stencil design, to the top right and bottom left corners of this paper. Adhere it to the 12” brown cardstock.
  2. Cut a piece from C94 003 that measures 8” wide X 7” tall. Ink the edges with brown ink. Adhere to center of background – as in photo.
  3. Take two of the bird design papers from the Carder’s Kit. Ink the edges with brown ink, and mat each piece with brown cardstock. Then mat the photo with brown cardstock. Refer to picture for placement.
  4. Take the My Dream Life Chipboard DC94 004 and spray with brown spray. When dry, adhere to white paper from Carder’s Kit MC94 001A. Trim paper around edge of chipboard. Adhere it in place using foam tape.
  5. Take the larger oval frame sticker from the Sticker Sheet ST94 001, and adhere it to a piece of the white paper. Trim the image out of the center of the frame. Create a decorative tag (2 ½” X 4”) from the white paper. Ink the edges with brown ink. Place small photo on tag, and adhere frame in place over it. Attach a small piece of ribbon to the top of the tag. Adhere tag in place on page using foam tape.

I used two of the 6” white papers from the Carder’s Kit MC94 001A, as well as the remaining C94 003 piece of paper, to create 6 flowers. I used rhinestone and pearl brads in the center of my flowers. Glue flowers in place, as shown. Punch sprigs/leaves of brown cardstock, glue in place around flowers.

Enjoy!
