Scrapbook Garden Design Kit - Dad


This is my 2nd layout for this months desgn kit
for the Scrapbook Garden using the
 
Beginning with some Bazzill cardstock in
Tawny light I punched some holes going in opposite
directions to each other and threaded them with
two different kinds of twine from the Vintage Finds Trim pack


Next using some Ribbon from the same
Vintage Finds Trims pack I inked it with some

Cutting two panels from Vintage Finds Flowers
and Bazzill Walnut Cream
punching a series of holes in both pieces on
the opposite sides to each other
 

and then lacing them together with the

I also cut two smaller pieces from the same card
and rounded all the corners to soften them

Once the two larger pieces were laced together
I added them to the 12 x 12 and fastened the smaller
pieces on either side , using the reverse of each pattern

I cut 5 tags , 3 large ones from the Walnut cream cardstock
which I stamped with the Rich Cocoa ink and
2 smaller ones cut from the Vintage finds Flowers paper
I inked all of the edges with the rich cocoa to age them


I threaded them all onto some of the twine
fastening them down to ensure they all stayed facing forward
and punched 2 holes in the bottom corners of the two
smaller pieces of card , passing the twin to the back of the page
and securing it in place.
I added the photo without further matting as it was an original
and I didnt want to alter it in anyway and the journaling
to the side of it.
Lastly attached my title which was actually the date
which had been stamped on the reverse of the photo
of my Dad wearing his demob coat.
