First I want to share a great scrapsite (ning site) from Brazil with tons of great inspiration! I was so honoured to be their featured guest/guest designer in September. The site is called Scraplounge, and please make sure to check it out here!
Published layout with real scraps
For some months ago I created a layout with lots of real scraps on for a magazine with theme "stitches". I had these pics of my daughter from she was just around one year old where she played with our clean laundry. I thought that a stitches-themed layout would fit perfect to laundry pics. I chose to play further on this, and used real scraps as zippers, washing instructions, price tabs, buttons, safety pins and so on from new and used clothes.
Here is my end result;
Donna Downey (Prima), and I made a skirt using a folded piece of paper and added on; - inspired by very talented and sweet Janine Koczwara from one of her amazing layouts.
Here are some close-ups showing the scrap details;
Zipper lock with textile on, plus several textile tabs and washing instructions from used clothes that she has grown out of.
The beautiful shaped pattern paper is from Onirie, and its original a 12x12 pattern paper, but has this design on which I cut out and made a shaped layout with.
This layout was published in a french magazine called Carnets de Scrap in Aug/Sept, and also in Scrapbooking m.m. in Scandinavia (Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
I will update again with more news very soon. Thank you so much for dropping by, and I wish you all a fabolous weekend! *hugs* :)
