More Jillibean Soup for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL.
I have been on a major gesso kick lately (I love this stuff). For my title block I applied a layer of gesso and then painted over it with some Tim Holtz Crackle Paint. Once the Paint layers were dry I applied the stickers (also from Jillibean Soup) and dropped from red spray ink over the top. I added some yellow polka dot strips to the top and bottom of the title block and punched some butterflies from the patterned paper using a Martha Stewart punch, I layered the butterflies on top of each other, popping the top layer with some foam tape and bent the wings upward for dimension.
I separated the two larger pattered blocks by repeating the using of the yellow polka dot paper. I used my favorite scallop punch to create a border and popped that strip to separate the top and bottom of my page. I added a little bling to the scallop because I wanted the page to have a little sparkle. I also added a strip of washi tape from Bella Blvd for some added interest.
I cut apart one of the journaling cards from the line and added the date by using some tab stickers from Pink Paislee . Another strip of the yellow polka dot paper helped tie everything together. I also thought that I needed to add a bit more of the washi tape, so I simply added a bit more to the lower left corner of the layout.
I typed up my journaling on my computer using the font Problem Secretary (this is one of my favorite fonts) and printed it out on Kraft paper from Bazzil. The journaling then got cut into strips and inked with the same Distress Ink from Tim Holtz that I used to grunge up all the other layouts on the page.
I added some of the journaling cards to create a cluster (did I mention I love the journal cards that came from this line, they are super cute!!!!). I also added a wooden element from My Minds Eye new Indie Chic line. After adding the picture to the layout and mounting the whole thing on red cardstock from Bazzil, I punched a couple more butterflies and scattered them on the page.
