Happy August! For today's Fancy This, I wanted to share a layout I created as a companion to my Hello Sumer layout I posted, for the Beach Bum Design Embellishments Product Spotlight, a couple weeks ago. I have two shadowboxes in my dining room that I love to change out for the seasons. I placed my Hello Summer layout in one of the shadowboxes, but it needed a mate. So, I created the layout I am sharing with you today. Now, I have one for each of my daughters and some great summer decor!
Fancy Pants supplies:
Beach Bum: Marina patterned paper
Beach Bum: Rub-ons
Beach Bum: Printed Transparency
Beach Babe: Glitter Cuts
Artist Edition: Memo Notebook
Artist Edition: Filter Embellishments (Pinking Edge)
Baby Mine: Chipboard Alphas
I want to share a couple techniques with you...
First, I wasn't pleased with the distracting background of my main photo (who's leg is that?).
... So, using a little acrylic paint, I painted out the background! I love the artsy look it gives the photo!
Second, I wanted to show you how to make the filter fan on my layout. I spattered some watered down acrylic paint on mine and then cut a slit in one side (from edge to center). I then, folded small pleats into the filter.
Then I gathered the pleats together...
... and pinched the bottom to create a fan.
Tie a little bit of twine to hold it and wha-la!
And here is a photo of my shadowboxes. :-)
I loved sharing with you today! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back tomorrow. We'll have a little tour of our CHA booth to show you and ... a giveaway!
