June Scrapbook Club

Great kit this month.....I love the music paper and the bottle of Matte Medium plus gorgeous flowers and patterned paper.

Here is my page followed by step by step instructions on how I did it!

  1. Tear a section of the music sheet paper to the size you want.
  2. Brush on some matte medium and adhere the music paper, creasing the paper to add texture
  3. Brush over more matte medium to ensure its stuck down. You now have a lovely surface for ink, paint....
  4. Rip up various patterned papers, position and mark on the page where you want them to go. Put to one side
  5. Sponge on some blue and green paint (bottom left and top right). Leave to dry
  6. Now for some more texture over the painted areas, stencil, palette knife and white texture paste. Leave to dry.
  7. I then carefully puddled some Crystal Effects keeping to the diagonal design and added some micro beads for even more texture!
  8. Using your fingers rub on some Treasure Gold. I used blues and green to co-ordinate with the paint
  9. I used a Bo Bunny background stamp and stamped in black ink on the opposite corners. You can use a cup or glass to do this just make sure you wash it up properly afterwards!
  10. Next, adhere the papers, then a glassine bag to hold the journalling and top with the photo raised on foam pads  
  11. Embellish with flowers, brads and a few sticker words. The title is from an old alpha which didn't have many letter left so for FUN I've used a C and a Z and turned them round for a U and N. Clever eh?

I'm also entering this for the CSI challenge this week as by adding a splash here and there of orange and yellow it fitted there theme perfectly!

Colour scheme: Yes.All five colours
Evidence: Yes. Polka Dots, flowers & leaves
Testimony: Yes. H=Journalling spot with decorative edge (Tucked in pocket though!) and a celebration

Hope you like it, thanks for looking x
