A reminder of the original layout we scraplifted by Steph Devlin
and this is our sketch.
I used a selection of seven Basic Grey Papers from several different collections, together with seven different coloured sheets of Bazzill and a sheet each of black and white.
I gutted the black Bazzill to give me a frame 1" deep (12" x 12")
I used Martha Stewart Round the Page punch sets to add a floral border to the white Bazzill, and stuck this centrally over the black frame.
Using the black Bazzill left over I mounted my photo, cutting a fine border round three sides of the photo and using the border punch (from the round the page set) again to decorate the bottom edge.
Then I embellished with ribbons, buttons, liquid pearls, flat backed pearls, blossoms and embroidery threads. Creating and arranging flowers in the colour sequence of the rainbow.
I was taught this useful mnemonic as a way to remember the order - Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vein (red, orange yellow green blue indigo and violet).
I used stamps and punches by Stampin' Up and many other punches.
To add the date I used My Little Shoe Box tiny type letter stickers.
I had great fun making this page.
