Tough but Sweet

This is my take on the July Mood Board from Très Jolie, using several sheets of the Denim & Girls collection from Maja Design and a good helping of the flowers and other embellishments that Kim selected for the Main Kit.

When I saw the hearts pattern on the “B” side of the Pink Linen sheet, this photo from my “must scrap” pile immediately came to mind. Here’s how it all came together.

I began by cutting an 8” x 8” square from the center of the bottom paper and put it aside. Using Scōr Tape, I adhered the remaining piece to a piece of packaging to give it stability; this would be my base.
The Pink Linen sheet was trimmed to 11 ½” x 11 ½” and punched in random spots around the edges before distressing and inking all around. When I was satisfied with the border, I taped it to the base.

I cut a 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece from the paper that I had taken from the center of the base, punched it down one side and distressed and inked the remaining edges. This was placed under my photo with a bit of packaging in between.
I flipped the remaining paper over to expose the dark print and used it along with one of the bracket tags (again, distressed and inked) to complete my layers.

And now it was time to embellish my page.

First, the amazing chipboard heart from Creative Embellishments: I simply dabbed it with the chalk edger; this ink is so “juicy” that one coat on the bare surface was all that I needed. I glued it down to the side of the photo, using a small piece of foam tape under the “splat” on top to give it dimension.

I cut the reverse sides of the UPC strips from the pattern paper into smaller pieces. After distressing and inking the edges, I placed them here and there around the page.

One of the strips went under the photo as the title piece.

I layered several flowers at the corner under the bottom of the chipboard piece. I cut apart some of the lace that came in the June kit and tucked it in here and there. I used some flat-back pearls (a gift from my SBC buddy, Dawna) to fill in the empty spaces.

I finished my page by adding some flowers and lace to the strips that I had placed in the upper corner.
