In honor of my Guest Designer occasion, I bought myelf a few new supplies. I chose the beautiful new Making Memories Paper Reverie line. The rich browns and oranges were a perfect match for my photo.
I LOVE the decorative edge on the glittered Specialty Sienne paper, so I used it as the base of my stacked strips. I piled on some Leopard paer, Brun gem tape, pleated Brun tape, and a Metallique scalloped border sticker. Ahhh, this collection has so much pattern and texture available.
I used my Slice Noteworthy Cartridge to cut all the fun frames on my layout. To give the appearance of chipboard, I cut each shape three times, glued them together, backed them with patterned paper, and then embellished each.
Finally, for my title, I pulled out some Making Memories Autumn Spice metallic chipboard alphas that I've been hoarding for a while. I love the size and the shimmery bronze finish. To give them a little richer tone that matches the Sienne paper, I lightly brushed them with some alcohol ink. For the second word of the title, I created a little banner out of the argyle pattern on the back side of the Bees Handwriting paper. I just cut out each of the diamonds and then folded them over a piece of baker's twine. The small letters that spell out "find" are Making Memories Halloween Shimmer Alphas backed with cream cardstock.
It was such a pleasure to get to Guest Design for Making Memories today. Thanks Making Memories!
