My June Layout ... "step by step" by Anna Uhras
Anna here today showing my "step by step" making my layout this month.
I think this is pretty typical "my way" of scraping.
I start choosing papers and make my layers to have under my photo.
When I am satified I often staples my stack of paper.
Next layer for me usually is some ordinary thread, here black, white and some green.
I also added a cluster of banners.
Time for the top layer of photos and here also a PL-card.
Usually I use 3d tape to mount my photos.
Now I put my stack of papers/photos away for a while to prepare my background cardstock.
This time I used some distress ink on a plastic mat, sprayed some water and just stamped it randomly over my cardstock until I was happy.
Sometimes I just splatter some color mist instead. It depends on how I feel.
Time to mount my stack of papers/photos and for that I have used some double-sided tape.
I decorated it pretty simply with two fussy cut arrows and my title. Used my sewing machine over my title, I love that effect.
Usually I also do my journaling with my own handwriting even if I really do not like my own writing but I think it may be a nice memory for our kids someday.
Well that's how my layout came out.
And here is the result.
Thank you Anna - I just love this page :)
