Well.... Look who's Happy Double Page Scrapbook Layout..

 This was one of the most beautiful classes I have done in a while.. I love this double page spread...

Heaps of techniques used in this one.. we daubered, die cut, punch art, shadow stamped, random stamped, distressed and separated card stock, background stamped.. and ripped...

Ever wanted to make a darker card stock have lighter images on it??? Grab your White craft ink and allow to dry ... then grab the colour you want to stamp and stamp on top... this is shadow stamping... it's how we created the little navy background cards on the spread...  even if you do not stamp right on top it really doesn't matter...  Pollymer stamps are the best for this technique as you can line them up pretty well by eye balling the image... :P

The white flowers are made by ripping some card stock into 3 different sized circle-ish shapes. Then you scrunch them and use a brad to hole the 3 layers together.. Too easy...

The Indigo and Night of Navy flowers are distressed and pulled apart flowers.. We punched the flowers out 2x big, 2x medium adn 1 x small sizes... then used a bone folder like a peeler on each flower between your thumb and pointer finger.. to distress and break apart the fibers... once you can see the card is separating you can carefully pull apart the layers.. Stampin Up Card stock is GREAT for this technique as it is specially designed to do just that...  once they are all apart you can then hold them together with a brad... then you scrunch up each layer (one at a time) using your fingers very close to the brad base... until all layers are TOTALLY scrunched into what resembles a tight bud... Then you can go ahead a spread them out a little to make the flower BLOOM.. :)

The Well was stamped using the Wooden background stamp and cut 1cm strips... then daubered around each strip and stuck then onto a scrap staggering the height of each layer.. trimming off the bottom by hand and then making the belt around with the Lg Oval punch by snipping a chunk out of card stock then taking a further bit out... making the perfect barrel belt... using the stamp n write marker to add the little nail accents holding together the well...

One of the great things about this layout is you can put several photos on.. and the 2nd page could have either a panoramic pic on it or 3 of the same size across the middle and the little one on top..

My ladies really enjoyed this class.. and Loved learning how to make their own embellishments... one of the ladies wanted to put her baby announcement photos onto her page and so we changed the well into a baby's cradle.. with a little more punch art magic... (I wish I took a photo of it.. It turned out well.. )

Enjoy all your crafting..
