This month it's my tu to do the anatomy! Yay!!! I thought and thought about what to do, because when I saw that fabulous, sequined blingy blue vine I knew exactly the picture I wanted to use with it!! I wanted something artsy, kinda funky!! This is what I came up with!
I used an old Martha Stewart punch, my trusty rusty edge distresser, black ink, Denim and Indian Co Glimmer Mist and that FABULOUS chicken wire mask, which I LOVE to pieces!!! I distressed the white paper here with the distresser and glued it onto a piece of black cardstock.
I didn't get the cardstock add on because I wasn't quick enough (Savages!!) So I used a piece of paper that I had that was close in color, and punched all the way around it. Then I glued it on top of the white paper.
Then I laid the mask down on the lined paper we got in the kit and misted with the Denim Glimmer Mist. Then I misted over it with the Indian Co. After the mist was right, I punched all the way around it.
When I punched the paper, I punched it , then punched over it again in random spots. I wanted it messy and to up looking.
Then I glued that paper on top of the red one. The misting caused the paper to warp really bad, so I used a lot of Zip Dry glue and used a brayer to get it flat. I kinda lifted up the punched edges a little to get a more textured look.
Ok, that takes care of the background!! Now, on to the embelishments…
I had fun with the rub-ons!!! First I rubbed the small tower on a piece of transparency paper. If you look a the flowers on yours, you will see that they are green. Although pretty, not the color I needed. So, after I rubbed it, I colored the flowers with the Indian Co Glimmer mist. I used a very small paint brush, let it set a few minuted then dabbed it off randomly with a q-tip, still leaving color on and around the flowers. Then I scanned it into my computer and printed it out 8×10 on transparency paper. Did it twice so I could get more flowers. I also scanned the phrase and the butterflies so I could print them out bigger. Here you see the original small rubs and the larger scans.
Here are the flowers I used and that fabulous sequined vine!!! I changed the color of the butterflies in photo shop. The original ones were green.. Again, pretty, but not the color I needed. I used some glossy accents and Diamond Dust on the wings to get them sparkly like the vine.
And when I took all that and thew it on a layout, here's what happened!!!
The shoes in this pic are the shoes my niece wore on her wedding day last July. I thought they were so awesome that I had to get this pic! Her sister in law is a scrapper, and she is the one who put the bling on them!!November 7, 2011 at 5:40 am #142699
