Ooh La La

I have been busy working on the November kit for Scrapaholix. I have made two layouts and still have plenty of goodies left in my kit for another layout or several cards. This months kit features the use of cork on your page as the technique. The papers are from My Mind's Eye - Ooh La La for him range.

This first page features my daughter Emily's goblin, Magpie. Please see earlier posts here and here. I used a sketch from Pencil Lines as my inspiration for the shape of this layout. There is a lot of distressing on this layout bu crumpling, sanding and inking. I used sizzlets and the Side Kick to create the letters. The frames and swirls are raised up with 3D foam pads and I enhanced all the little dots on the paisley swirls with white opal (from a previous kit) and mint green Perfect Pearls and Cinnamon Stickles all by Ranger Inks.

Garden raffia finished off the natural effect started with the cork and the colour scheme.

In my second layout I have used an old photograph of Alan's grandfather Ernest Frank Cooper, born 1875. The photo was twice the size so I had to scan it in two halves and stitch it together.
If you look closely it has been heavily enhanced with pen and ink at some stage. Ernest lived in Bedfordshire and was a farm labourer.

For the layout I used tho sizzlets again and cut the title and the photo corners. Played around flipping the double sided paper and used lots of the paper embellishments.

November's kit contains:

8x8" sheet of cork
My Mind's Eye - Oh La La
2 x For Him Papers (double sided)
1 x For Him accessories sheet
4 sheets Cor'dinations card stock -
2 x Vanilla Cream
