Today’s layout(s) turned out a little different than I had envisioned. I intended to make a single page layout with the daily agenda that the cruise ship had provided and the 5″x7″ that we had bought on the cruise. When I went to put the page together I realized that the big agenda and the big picture would not fit on the same page. I REALLY wanted them together.
What I did was make a two page layout. I used the same decorative cardstock for both pages as the background page. I started with the left page and added the agenda. I then matted a picture of me as I first entered Little Stirrup Cay. I just had the matting showing on the top and the bottom of the picture. I attached the picture (it is 4″x6″) butted up against the daily agenda. I matted the large picture on the same paper that I matted the 4″x6″ picture. I then added a large sticker of a cruise ship that came in the kit that I purchased on board of the Fascination.
Right side – I had already matted the large picture and I attached it to the right side of the page. I added a metal heart that I had made in Kansas – attaching it with glue dots. I then added three stickers that were butted up against eachother. One of them hung over the edge and I cut off the extra and put it on the left side of the layout. I made sure that they lined up exactly. The only other thing I added to the layout was a die-cut that said “Smile”.
To make the metal heart I had the piece of metal and I scratched the B+D into it with sharp tweezers. I was in KS when I did this so I didn’t have a lot of tools with me so I got creative. I then put a few layers of acrylic paint on top of the heart (making sure it got into the letters). I used a heat gun and dried the paint and then rubbed off all that was on top of the heart. It left what was inside the letters. Here is a link to the You Tube video that I already published because it has another project on it also. Please take a look.
