How long have you practise Scrapbooking ?
I scrap since September 2008, as I return home from vacation, I wanted to higlight my photos and not just to put them in a plastic cover album : so I looked on the net because I had vaguely heard of without knowing what was Scrapbooking and I soon found ideas!
What do you like to do with scrapbooking?
I always compare a bit of a designer who tries to find the papers most suitable to the picture (a page) and add the right embellishments, so that everything is smooth... I love making cards that I send to my Copinettes or to my family. The cards are quickly made and are always fun, a page takes more time and thought.
What are your favorite colors?
I am very "girly" and I like the old roses tones in powder pink fuchsia and purple / violet but in fact all the colors are beautiful in scrap if they are harmoniously combined.
What brings scrap to you ?
A large appreciation of the work and the satisfaction of achieving something with my 10 fingers! I never do not consider myself as a "manual" or "artist in the soul" girl because I've never been good at drawing, thanks to the scrap I found my "artistic" way and I have a hobby !
First, choose your Vintage image (you can find it on the Net. Look at HERE or THERE ou launch a search about "victorian romance"...), and prepare one or two Bazzill matching papers, slightly larger and use the Edge distresser blade or scissors to "damage" the edges.
Ink paper and image edges with Distress Ink and a piece of Cut'N dry. Mat your image (mounting papers below the image)
Prepare your papers and the Bazzill to use as a background for your tag, cut corners and make a hole in the top
I chose "Chanteuse collection" Kaiserkraft papers...
Punch the butterflies in paper you choiced and ink selected papers
Glue the paper and make one eyelet as follows:
With a puncher, make a small round you punch again (smaller puncher) and ink the edges...
Prepare and place your embellishments as you like (Try-test before gluing)
Stick all your embellishments and your tag is finished!
