I have been coveting a certain punch. A certain punch I have seen at my local Archivers. I saw it, but didn't get it and then every time I went in after that to find it, it was sold out. Which of course made me want it more! So, how lucky was I that they had just restocked them the other day when I had my 43% off coupon in hand? WHOOT!
I do believe this is meant to assist with creating flowers with punches. But, I just love the shape! It can be a nondescript accent, a firework, a snowflake, or yes I suppose it could also be the center piece to a flower.But for now, I see it as a lovely way to make something out of all of my scraps. Let's get to it shall we?
Punch, Punch, Punch... A rainbow of pretty scraps!
I am thinking a bit of kraft will set this rainbow punch party off nicely. But first, we must mist. I do love Mister Huey's but it rubs off and that irks me. So, what's my solution to this? After it is dry on my page, I give the entire sheet a very light mist of Krylon sheer coat. This works wonders but smells REALLY bad. If you are smarter than I was, you will take your paper outside to do this. But, I was too lazy for that step...so, after intaking some lovely fumes, let's move on...
I see a central design with the photo below the rainbow scraps:
Tombo should do the trick of getting those little bursts on the page:
A bit of washi at the bottom to serve as a transition from the delicate punched pieces to the rectangular photo:
Ah yes! I like it, but now is when I realize that this is in fact NOT centered. Oh joy.
OK, no worries! I have the perfect piece of Jillibean Soup Staples and it's even more appropriate after it get's the same Mister Huey treatment:
There we go! Centered and stitched on:
I believe it's time for a title:
And some pen work:
And after the usual finishing bits and pieces, there we have it!
Believe in Bliss AND... happy accidents. I do think I like it much better cut and stitched onto that dark paper. YAY!
Now, off to play some more with my new punch :)
See you next time for August's edition of Layout Love Linky!
