for techniques on your page
|Story:||Our pastor sent me a note a while back using this notecard that featured a pencil drawing of our church. The church had notecards made up with the illustration having been drawn by Pastor's son. Naturally, I had to save the card front to scrap.|
Even though I am not musically inclined like the rest of my family, church music means a lot to me, so the staff lined paper and smaller music print punched from a larger sheet worked beautifully on this page.
Did you take note of the double-meaning of my page title?
|Style:||The challenge over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog was to use old tools to do techniques on your page. Here are old tools I employed.|
First tool was an unopened bottle of Smooch Spritz. Regular readers know what happened when I opened the bottle clumsily in that signature way I have (patent pending) and dumped quite a bit on my paper. I was able to wipe most of the excess away as the paper was embossed with a lattice design to resist the color. That which did not look so good became the perfect location for a floral cluster. Those nice round dots of another color were not my doing, but pre-printed on the paper.
Secondly, the flat iron (which I would never use on my hair) flattens the ribbon that had been wrapped around cardboard. Since the introduction of washi tape, I use much less ribbon even though I have many, many remnants wrapped up for storage. I found that if I don’t flatten it before attaching it to the paper, it will often pop up at the bends.
And thirdly, the stamp-a-ma-jig was used to place the stamped wording in the lower left hand corner; two stamps are used there not one. Using the jig to get the placement just so was important because I had already finished the floral border.
