Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a little liquid gold inspired layout to share with you. My layout is inspired by my husband’s love for craft beer. I don’t like beer myself, but what I do enjoy is exploring these fabulous local businesses and the art and design that goes into their craft.As soon as I set eyes on these fabulous stamps from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection….I knew I had to have them for just this reason. Even just as the stamp alone, don’t they look fabulous?I created my layered background and then did a few simple mixed media steps in order to frame the area where my matted photo would be. A little blending and splattering, and let dry. Then I stamped the beer mug and beer bottle onto the layout itself in black ink. This ends up simply as a backdrop. On a separate piece of kraft cardstock I stamped both images again and added colour to them using Chameleon Coloured Pencils.I then cut out the mug and bottle and popped them up on the layout using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. I added a few Ornate Trims borders also in black ink in the bottom right hand corner and the top left hand corner.I created a photo backdrop using actual beer labels that we picked up as souvenirs while traveling. Then added a strip of patterned paper from the Transatlantic Travel Collection from Carta Bella. I matted the photo twice in cream cardstock and distressed the edges. Add Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Kraft Creative Photo Corners to the photo and adhere to the layout using Crafty Foam Tape.Add a simple title using letter stickers and that’s that. Who says scrapbooking a more masculine layout can’t be fun. Cheers to all the Dad’s out there that enjoy a mug or bottle of brew now and then.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
