The September issue of CREATE is due soon and I still have one layout of the July issue to share...so without further ado....
The magazine is downloadable HERE and the free sketches are available HERE. The magazine is choc-a-block full of ideas and inspiration. This month the featured manufacturer is WeR Memory Keepers and Bazzill.
Today I am sharing my layout based on the card sketch for the Altered challenge in this month's magazine. I was inspired by the general design layout of the card and I knew I wanted to use the star theme. This is the page using a photo of my grandson Lukas.
Supply list: Patterned paper: Kaisercraft, 7Gypsies; Chipboard title and stars: Blue Fern Studios; Bling: Jillibean soup; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Stencil: Studio Calico, Glitter: Melissa Francis; Other: Burlap from my stash.
Some close ups:
I love the Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar line. Just look how beautiful it shows off this photo. The shooting stars chipboard was gesso'ed and then just glittered.
I used a Studio Calico stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut and Peacock Feathers to fill in empty space on the patterned paper. The little gems are Jillibean Soup staples.
I love adding layers behind my photos...and the piece of burlap just looked perfect to form the base. The Chipboard title was gesso'ed and then coloured with PanPastel in Red Iron Oxide.
I finished off the large star with another Jillibean Soup gem.
So off you go now and download the magazine...there is so much inspiration shared inside it...and it is free.
