Sneak Peek #4

Well, we're back with another layout using our upcoming September Kit, and this time I get to show you a layout I created.  This kit is so easy to work with.  Everything just seems to come together beautifully!

"Sweet & Sassy" by Valerie Serfozo

I love the tags that are printed on one sheet of the Riddersholm Design paper in this collection. Before I began using the kit, I knew I would want to use them, so I cut all of them out. I've used three of them on this layout of my niece, Macy -- even using one of them as my title. I cut the Dusty Attic compass in half so I could use it in two places on my layout. To create the border I cut a few strips of patterned paper, sprayed them with water, and wadded them into a ball. When they were almost dry, I lightly adhered them to the layout, then stitched in place. The inside portion of the layout was coated with gesso so the outside would be a little darker and create a frame.
