How I made my July page II

 Here is how I made my page for July, using Liz Qualman's design for inspiration........

For Liz's original layout and sketch, see the M is for Masks Challenge post. For more information about my layout see my blog.

I started with a sheet of white textured Bazzill. Using the Creative Expressions Leaves mask and Cosmic Shimmer Mist (Blue Lime, Ocean Sunlight & Aqua Lagoon), I sprayed the cardstock to create the background.

These are the Bo Bunny papers used, all from the Ad Lib Collection. I selected the green, blue and yellow areas of these papers.



Wild Thing

and Vertigo

I cut a band of three stripes for the horizontal band from the Vertigo paper.

The three vertical strips were cut as follows:
Yellow side of Pebbles paper 2x9"
Green side of Vertigo paper 2x11"
Blue side of Wild Thing paper 2x8.5"

After working out the placement of photos and patterned papers, I gutted a panel from the cardstock. From this piece I cut four retro flowers using an EK Success punch. I stamped a journalling block onto the blue lined paper and matted it onto one of the patterned papers. The flowers were shaped with the scissor blade and attached with 3D foam pads to add dimension. Then I drew in detail with a black pen. The centres were created using the Bo Bunny Ad Lib rubber stamps, cutting the circles and adding them with more 3D foam pads.

For the photo mount I used the blue side of the Stripe paper cut to 5x7", decorating the corners with the Jazz corner punch.

I added doodles lines and patterns to the edges of the patterned papers and the cardstock.

The title letters were cut using the Cricut. The letters were cut in white and the shadows in patterned papers.

Pop over to the July challenge post to take part in this month's challenge and be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Bazzill, Bo Bunny papers & stamps, Cosmic Shimmer Mists, Cricut cart and punches all available from Cardinal Colours.
