This is another layout for Jocelyn's Graduation album. The papers are by DCWV in the Ciao Bella line. These are great papers for inking as several of them have raised scrolls and surfaces that won;t hold the ink with the under layer does. In this particular layout, the scroll looking piece is actually purple in color and I have inked it brown using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo. The flower is hand made using a paper from K & Company in the Blue Awning Collection. Lots of dots and stitching add the finishing touches to this layout!

Country Charm

This is another layout for Jocelyn's Graduation Album. I love the look of Blues and Browns together. It has a real country feel to it. I changed the color of the photo to a darker sepia to better match the colors of paper I chose. I used a few colored buttons to add a simple bit of flair and color to the blue swiss dot paper from K & Company Blue Awning Collection. The letters are covered in paper and inked. The word charm is done using chipboard letters, inked brown, drawn on wood texture and varnished for a gloss finish.

Attitude Is Everything

This layout turned out so much cooler than I had hoped it would! The paper is handmade using plain white card stock and alcohol inks. When using this technique always be sure to put down papers underneath as it will bleed through. I started by adding drops of ink to the paper and letting them spread out on their own. I used several different colors. Then I used Blending Solution to help the colors mix into one another. I did this several times letting the paper dry between inkings. All inks and blending solutions are by Ranger. The dot scrolls are hand drawn using a Gelly Roll pen in White. The flowers are punched using the Retro Whale of a Punch.

Sweet Senior

This is for Jocelyn's Graduation album. Not a lot of details on this one, besides the stitching effect. I used K & Company paper in the Tim Coffey line. I love, love, love this paper and the really cool textured look it has. It has a look of tweed or woven fabric to it that adds a lot of character to your pages. Lots of tearing and inking as usual on this one. The letters are by Fresh Paint and are colored Black and red to better match the papers.
