I seem to have developed a fixation toward the rubons that came with the November Noveau kit from Swirlydoos: Iíve ended up using them for the title of every page that Iíve created since it arrived. I only mention this because Iím notoriously horrible about titles and usually skip over this essential feature with every layout. Who knows? Maybe Iím ready to change my waysÖ
As mentioned, this page was created with the Noveau kit, full of gorgeous colors and papers and flowers and trims and even a jar of Silks acrylic glaze. Right on deadline, Iím entering it in Angelicaís Butterfly Challenge, always a favorite of mine!!!!
After punching out a circle with a Memory 8 punch, I made a flourish with molding paste (Krissyís been supplying us with that, too, in the Project kits) and one of my favorite stencils. I cut a few strips from scraps left over from my ďForeverĒ page to place behind the photo and fussy cut an image from the Frames pp. Next, I applied a coat of the Silks glaze to the Dusty Attic chippie, dried it, inked the edges, and applied a thin coat of watered-down gesso. When almost dry, I inked the edges again, allowing the slight damp to cause the Distress Ink to bleed softly.
Some pop dots, a few flowers and a bit of bling; another scrap adhered to the frame and a wood clock inside; a few butterflies here and there and it still didnít look finished. Shaking my head, I took out the rubsÖ
