Both layouts done with various October Afternoon papers, and a teeny bit of Cosmo Cricket paper (the blue gingham) and MME (green title and photo mats).
This two page layout was based on Sketch #61 from Sketch Savvy. This is a one page sketch that I turned into a two pager for my Disney Club.
For the title, I cut 3 layers of thin chipboard and cardstock out with my QuicKutz alphas and then layered them to make the words "having a" stand out. The words "Wild Time" are very old chipboard.
For the different embellishments, I cut out burlap in several colors, and then dyed some of the white burlap with blue Distress Stain so that there were some blue bits too. In order to make embellishments without the burlap disintegrating, you have to iron on interfacing before you cut it. I used Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves dies and Movers and Shapers dies for these pages.
To add some texture to the burlap pieces, I attached them to the page and then poked holes where I wanted the veins to go, and hand sewed with linen thread. Yes, it took forever, but I like it.
This is the second layout about our Critter Breakfast. This is also October Afternoon paper, the same Tim Holtz dies, but cut with paper on this layout. The solidish cardstock papers are from Bo Bunny and MME.
For a little texture, I cut additional acorns from chipboard, layered them and then put the colored cardstock on top. A Chip and Dale layout must have lots of acorns on it!
