Upper left - vintage men! This image is the back of a playing card. Available on my MMM site - follow the link in my signature. I cut out the money from scrapbooking paper and punched the motif I glued to a green disc from a $1 sticker sheet. The 1/2" SU punch was just the right size to punch it out. Works perfectly on the disc. I stamped several different images on the black background with my White Moolight Brilliance pad. It does not show up well on the scan. There is also a strip of fiber glass screening which I coloured with my green Memories pad under the left hand side of the image and under the disc embellishment. The Friends is a sticker I created by laser printing on labels with the Dymo font.
Upper right - Children's theme. I used a piece of decorative "faux leather" paper at the top of this page. Added the image to the bottom and then cut a scrap strip from a $1 store sticker page as a bridge between the two - worked very well. Added a few flourishes and "share" and I was done!
Lower left - Cut out the image and layered it onto a piece of scrapbook paper which I stamped with my SU harlequim background in White Brilliance. Subtle - exactly what I wanted. Added the B which I created using my new Doodle Block Sizzix alphabet set I got at Michaels on clearance on Saturday!! Yeah what at deal!! Works very nicely in my Cuttlebug!! Added the rest of the quote in marker. Had to redo it several times as the marker was resisting a bit on the Brilliance ink. Added my Dymo sticker and was done!
Lower right - children theme! This was my first one. Stippled and stamped on the scrapbook paper and then layered the trimmed image over that. Just love this little girl. She can be in charge!! I stamped the B with an outline alphabet on a page of text and embossed it. Then cut it out and watercoloured it. Stamped "in charge" on the image and added the rest of the quote in brown Sharpie.
So those are the pages I created over the weekend!! They are ready to be mailed today and one of the extra ones is going out as a RAK!!
Have really enjoyed the creative process!! Thanks to those who are ahead of me in this process for sharing their ideas, images and techniques! There is much wonderful inspiration out there!!
Happy September to all!!
