Chipboard and Custom Engraved items take 3-5 business days for processing.

Beyond the Mist

This photo taken by my son last May up in the Lake George, NY area is so spectacular that I wanted to keep this layout pretty simple. The Craft O’Clock papers that come in the Tres Jolie September Kit, with the subtle colors and prints are perfect for this purpose.

I began with a gorgeous new chipboard piece from Tres Jolie. I decided to let it blend in with the mossy rocks, so I simply colored it with Distress Oxide ink in Forest Moss, using a blending tool to “pounce” on several layers until I was satisfied with the colors.

The edges of photo and the matting piece below were inked with Distress ink, again in Forest Moss before being backed with packaging and glued down. (I used the same ink to edge the other paper elements.)

Kim included a few Lemon Craft papers; I fussy cut some leaves and used part of another sheet for one of the banner strips.

A few flowers from the kit and one of those gorgeous Prima butterflies were all I needed to complete my project.
