Step X Step

HI its Em again! How is the week all treating you?? Today I am going to share with you a step x step for a recent layout, one of my favourite layouts I have done lately actually.

Here it is, titled ‘Sydney snaps’  I have used 3 pieces of WOW chipboard & an AltaMATZ on this layout.  ok here we go…..


First up I took a 12 x 12 piece of Black cardstock and used mister hueys Calico White spray with the AltaMATZ 12 x 12 chicken wire (ALTA016) and spritzed lightly.


Next I prepared my Title chippy, the original piece says Sydney harbour bridge (RWL416), I decided I just wanted to use the sydney part of the title.


So I used a craft knife and carefully cut off the harbour bridge part (I popped these pieces back in my chippy stash to be used at a later date)


I then inked the sydney part & outlined the title with white pen


Next up I sprayed My film strip (C428) chippy with calico white & sunshine mr hueys.


I then used some orange paint and randomly smeared it on my cardstock.


Then tear 2 strips of pattern paper roughly 15cms long & 2-2 1/2 cms wide, distress & Ink.  Adhere the strips to the cardstock, the first one roughly 9cms from the bottom edge of cardstock, then the 2nd pattern paper overlapping the top of the first piece of pattern paper.


Adhere the film strip on a slight angle 6cms from the bottom edge of the cardstock.


sand around the edges of your photo strips for a more distressed look, then adhere them with puffy tape side by side but slightly angled and on top of the film strip chippy.


Add your chippy title with puffy tape to the left & bottom of the left photo strip


finish your title off by adding alpha stickers etc if you wish/need to


add any other embellishments/journaling you would like, just to finish off your page. I have added a couple of stickers, some journaling and a WOW butterfly (RWL104)


And another look at the finished layout.


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my step x step, I shall be back tomorrow with another layout to share.
