One of my Design Team layouts for the August Challenge.
This is my daughter Catherine dressed as a teacher for Victorian Day at school in 1999.
Please see my blog for more details.
Here is a reminder of the original layout was created by 2 Dogs, chosen by the DT for this month's challenge.
I used Kaiser Craft papers from Charlotte's Dream Collection - Vision and Die Cut.
I also used some die cuts from the Charlotte's Dream Collectables.
The Die cut sheet was distressed and inked before being stuck down to a piece for Fuzzy Peach Kaiser Craft cardstock.
A 5" circle cut from Vision was distressed, inked and edged with lace. I stuck this to the right of the layout and mounted my photo onto it.
I cut a 4" circle from cardstock and mounted it onto a small doily, both were inked.
This was then trimmed with a strip of pleated gold netting, and attached to the left of the bigger circle.
I decorated with paper flowers from Kaiser Craft and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The date and 'Catherine' were spelt out with Kaiser Craft Charlotte's Dream Stickers.
I cut the sign from scraps of Bazzil and using a Sizzix die. These were heavily inked and I added eyelets to the holes. I hung the sign from the hanger with some cord then stuck to the layout with 3D foam pads. The word 'Teacher' is made with Thickers letter stickers from American Crafts.
I added some gem swirls and some decorative brads.
