Journey Layout

Hey scrapping friends!
I have been super busy lately getting my school photos up to date.  My eldest boy is in year 11 and has just been offered an apprenticeship at the end of the year so he will be leaving and I still have so many school photos to scrap.
Anyway here is my layout.

Here's how I created this simple layout.
I first stamped my background with a few different stamps and different colour inks to give it a layered look.

I then cut my papers from the 12 x 12 Sew Jo Paper Pad.  These pads have lots of sewing themes on them but I love using the ruler and the other sheets for the boys school pages as they are getting older.
Here is how I created the cog border.  I cut 2 from the Cog Border die out of cereal boxes. 

I then inked them with VersaMark ink and embossed with a gold embossing powder.  You can see from the photo that they turned out a little shiny.

To tone it down a little, just very gently swipe over it with black inked sponge dauber.

I then heat set it too and let the embossing powder really bubble up.

To finish off my page I tucked a doily underneath my photos.  This is the new Splendour die.  Yep I know its a boy page but I can't help myself when it comes to these lovely doily dies!

I kept my title simple by using Journey die and adhering it to a tag that I cut using the Cameo decorative die.  The tag was cut from Core-inations card and sanded back.  I popped this all on mounting foam and tucked a flourish from the swirl die just underneath.

I love how these papers just worked for school photos now that the children are getting older.

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share
