Imagine, Explore, Play
by Jayme Loge
I recently got my hands on some new DCWV stacks and fell in love (LOVE!) with the ‘Vintage Collector’ line. It is perfect for my girly-girl with wild hair and something askew child- pretty with a touch of shabby!. As soon as I saw the papers I knew they would work with some photos we took at the lake. Sketch books in hand, we took a long walk down the weedy beach. The photos are some of my very favorites ever! I look at them and I can hear her contentedly humming as she picked flowers, checked out snail shells and danced a story for all creation on an abandoned dock. How I love that girl…
I pulled out some of my favourite Sizzix dies- the movers and shapers. They are usually seen on cards or tags, but I also love how easy they are to add to a layout. I can just place the small die on the layout where I want the cut to be and move the paper along with the positioned die to my machine. For the butterfly, I inked the edges with a tonal pigment ink, covered the whole piece with embossing ink and then clear embossed over everything. I wanted it to lift out of the paper in way that was noticeable, but not overbearing.
Add in some ribbon fun- and voila! Beautiful summer memories are preserved on a seriously cold winter afternoon.
