Hello, Hello! In my last post, I showed you all the results of a Jillibean Soup crafting extravaganza. A self-imposed extravaganza, all in an attempt to find out if I actually enjoy scrapping with all of the Jillibean cuteness that I keep buying. What did I decide? I am not quite sure yet...
After all of the single pagers were complete, I had just enough left to start seeing double. I am not much of a double page scrapper, so I could use a bit of your help here....
Let's get started!
Since I can't bear to look at this as 2 actual pages, the background sheets get taped together with washi on the back:And so we begin...
Perhaps some misting?
Oooooh, I like that!
Now for these fun scraps. Hmmmmmm....
Nope, not feeling that....
I can't decide. But, what I do know is that the cute little bunnies need to turn into confetti:
I still can't decide on the photo placement. So, let's just play with confetti for now! A bit of matte medium and a brush should get all of this on there quickly.
All spread around. Don't worry...the brush marks will disappear when completely dry:
Now, while that dries...perhaps I can make up my mind about the rest of this!Ah yes! I like the idea of approaching this as a single pager that has been "stretched." So, photos to the left and embellishment/title area to the right.
Let's layer! Torn sheets from the Studio Calico journals are so perfect for tucking in and around to add lots of little layers
All stacked up...
Perhaps some of the confetti remnants?
And now for some glitter! I picked this gorgeousness up from Jenn over at the Live Teach Create Etsy Shop.
You all know how I love my lines. And, I love them even more when they are glittery! So, some adhesive strips get applied:
Glitter all spread around:
Let's layer some more!
And do a bit more glitter:
Title time! Hmmmm....I want a more dimensional look for the word "Easter." But the letter E seems to be in a bit of a demand around my studio....
Ahhh, perhaps this Z can turn into an E?
YES! But, I don't have an S in that font....
That's OK, I will just grab from another font. But now, I need another letter to be different so it looks more purposeful, yes? So, a random E is chosen.
I really want to use this fun glittery alpha, but I have no S! Argh! After much pondering (seriously, I won't even tell you how long I spent on this title) I decided that the Z flipped backward with some of that awesome glitter on it would do just fine.
Now for all the bits and pieces...
After the journaling, The pages are cut apart - always a scary part!
And...there we have it! I love the subtle shadows and tone from the misting. The B sides of Jillibean seem to lend themselves quite well to these sorts of effects :)
Easter Posing, with some Jillibeans.
All layered up:
So, what did I decide about all of this Jillibean sweetness? Even though all of their papers are always SO cute and tempt me every time, will I order from this menu again?
YES! In fact, I already did!
After a thorough taste testing, I give this soup 5 stars for my crafting! Yum!
