This is now my final page with the printed photos, machine cut lettering and journalling added.
Here is how my page was created:
I started with chipboard letters and white card stock and my sheet of instructions.
Painted the chipboard with distress paint.
Inked the paper with Salty ocean and Mowed lawn distress inks (for the sky and the grass), blended it with water and put it in the sun to dry.
Cut up a sheet of red card stock just a bit bigger than I am going to print my photos.
You can see by the blue clock...an hour later...I had added Stencil work to the top of the page in Walnut stain distress ink and green over the green with the burlap stencil. I am going to journal here. (you have to use at least 50 words)
Then I added the die cuts of the bird on the branch, half a clock to mimic the sun and the fence along with some stamped images from my set of IndigoBlu stamps.
nearly 2 hours after starting... This is as far as my page really is. I super imposed the writing and photos over the top of this pic to get an idea of where I was going and to check on FB if I was using the right photos, before I spent money on printing! I have the "go ahead" and will print pics today, then add my journalling and post to the forum!
Its been fun!
