Anyone who visits my blog regularly know that I am a huge fan of Papertrey Ink's Make It Mondays. Well, this week, they're having a recap of all the MIMs from the last year-- we can go back and choose to make something using a technique that we missed. In looking back, there weren't very many that I'd missed (only the first 7 and then anything involving glitter or Copics.) So, seeing as I don't own any glitter or Copics (the reason I never did those challenges in the first place), I decided to tackle a few of the first challenges I missed.
I made this layout using two techniques: #5 (Distressing Edges) and #6 (Impression Plate Tricks 1):
I used Bazzill & PTI cardstock (scarlet jewel, rustic cream), Generations by Simple Stories patterned paper, Papertrey Ink stamps (Gratitude Journal), felt, impression plate (woodgrain) & dies (heart border, Mega Mat Stack #4, Heart Prints). The decorative brad is Bo Bunny.
When I ordered prints for my mini-album, I ordered some copies of my favourites to scrapbook. I took this photo last spring in the Pembina Valley.
Here's a close up of the impression plate technique, where you just impress a portion of the diecut:
I just love all the texture in this layout!
Thanks for looking!
