Summer Mini Blog Hop

Ok, fingers crossed this is showing where it's meant to at the right time! You should have arrived here from Sharlene Torres' blog. For my project I have made a scrapbooking page using the new Presto Patterns Specialty paper. You get 12 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock - 2 each of 6 different designs in a pack. This paper has got clear resist style images that appear when you sponge, brayer or spritz ink over the top. The designs are all vintage inspired. Here is the before picture of the design I have used. You can just see the image if you turn it in the light.

Next go off to find brayer. Return and remove cat....

Start to brayer ink across page - I have used Melon Mambo

Next I spritzed the page with Frost White shimmer paint mixed with Isocol rubbing alcohol - I love this stuff!

The finished product. It hasn't photographed too well but if you click on it you will be able to see it in greater detail.

I have also used the new square scallop Big Shot die cut out in Daffodil Delight matted behind the photo. This has also been run through the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder (and no I didn't find mine, I bought another one!). The butterflies are cut out with the Beautiful Wings embosslits die in Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Rich Razzleberry. The large butterflies are mounted on dimensionals and have the rhinestone jewels attached to their centres. The tag is cut from the Lots of Tags sizzlit die and the word is from the new Fabulous Phrases stamp set which is available as wood or clear mount, stamped in Basic Gray ink and punched out with the Word Window punch. Two rhinestone jewels also embellish this.

I hope you have enjoyed my project. It's now time to hop to the next blog:

I love what you've done with this, Gail. I wasn't sure whether to order this paper, but you've made upmy mind for me - so gorgeous!

What a gorgeous layout and loved the step by steps. (Especially the cameo from your cat!) That yellow scallop square is fab behind the photo.

Lovely page Gail, and thank you for the photos showing the new papers - your cat made me laugh as well :)
