Be Awesome Today Featuring the August Mood Board
The August 2021 Scrapbook Kit from Tres Jolie is crammed with papers and cut-aparts from Craft O’Clock’s Hello Beauty collection, flowers from Prima, a jar of embossing powder from Lindy’s Stamp Gang and a gorgeous chipboard border. To add to that, this month’s Mood Board is full of pinks and greens and touches of lace and Summer; I decided that this was a perfect match for a photo of my granddaughter taken eight years ago. Here is my layout:
And here is the Mood Board that inspired it:
I started with the chipboard piece, priming it with white gesso, then treating it with the embossing powder.
I selected sheet #3 from the paper pack; I love the stripes and the frame in the center. The photo was famed and matted with a couple of pieces from 49 and Market, with pieces of packaging in between to give it some dimension. I added a few scraps, trimmed to tag shapes and inked, behind this and glued it all down.
Time to embellish: First, I cut the embossed border in half and arranged it on the bottom corner of the photo to create a pair of flourishes. Next, I selected some of the flowers that came in the kit and arranged them in a cluster. One of the resin cameo pieces was treated with the embossing powder and placed under the photo. I filled in the gaps around the flowers with lace from my stash and added a butterfly from the Cards Kit.
I chose a sticker from a Tim Holtz sticker pad for the title and finished my page by splattering it here and there with watered-down gesso.
