Less Perfection Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday, crafty people!

I am sharing another layout that I made with the October scrapbook kit.  The beautiful shabby chic Blue Fern Studios papers from the Jane’s Memoirs collection have to be one of my favorite collections ever.  I love the colors, especially the dark accents of brown.  This piece of paper with the script images really got me thinking about how a sepia tone picture would look amazing with it, and  I was right!  Here’s what I came up with: For this layout I treated all of the layers by heavily distressing the edges, and soaking the edges in water, then I dipped the edges in a cup of the Nuvo spray in Cocoa Powder from the mixed media kit.  You can see that the Nuvo spray has lots of mica that makes the edges shiny, but only the brown color seeps into the paper fibers, creating a vignette effect.

I cut up several of the images from the “Calling Cards” sheet of paper and layered them. I also sprayed the Creative Embellishments decorative oval frame (the larger one from the kit).  In the closeup below, you can see the silver mica from the spray show up on the chipboard piece.
I had bits of lace left from my other projects, so I cut it up in smaller pieces and stuck them in between the paper layers. The title is from my stash (Prima Marketing), and I added some white gold and rose gold waxes to it so it would blend into the layout a bit.
For the flowers, I added a couple from my stash, and I inked them with brown chalk ink, also to blend the tones of the layout.Here’s another closeup that captures the beauty of the edges of the paper:Thanks for stopping by the blog!
