How I made my November Layout - Crazy Girl

A reminder of my page for the November Scraplift challenge.

This month we are scraplifting the lovely Lou who is a fellow design team member. This is her original Layout.

Here is our sketch

Here is how I made my page:
The papers are from My Mind's Eye, The Sweetest Thing - Honey Collection
Gut the gold Bazzill to give me a frame 1" deep (12" x 12").

Trim the bee patterned paper to 11" x 11". Gut some of the cream paper from under where the photo mat will be placed about 3" x 3". Also cut the lettering strip 'One of a Kind' from the background and set aside. Stick this paper centrally over the gold frame.

Cut the floral paper to measure 6" x 4" round the corners and stick to right of honeycomb and roses detail.

Cut chicken wire to measure about 8" x 5" and attach to page with the two decorative brads near the top corners.

With four small photos, stick to white cardstock to appear like a photo-booth strip. Stick to centre of wire with 3D foam pads. 

Using the Cricut I the Journalling plates and mats then stuck as shown to the left of the photo with 3D foam pads.  (All cut using the Lacy Labels cartridge. Cut in Cream 'To From' @ 3", Cut in Gold 'To From Shift' @ 3", Cut in Cream 'Hugs' @ 3", Cut in Pink 'Hugs Shift' @ 3". Also cut in Floral 'Welocme' @ 1 3/4", Cut in Gold 'Welocme shift' @ 1 3/4".)

Cut a bee in black cardstock and add to bottom of plates (Cut with Home Decor Cricut cartridge).

Punch a flower from the gutted paper, honeycomb side up, ink and curl petals and apply on top of title block to the right side with a sticky fixer pad. Cut title and add this over the top of the flower. (I used the Cricut and the 'Paisley' cartridge to cut the word  'Crazy'.) Apply off the edge of bottom right of wire using 3D foam Pads.

Make some clay flowers using Fimo Light and a Martha Stewart mold.  When dry paint these with the pink and yellow acrylic paints and glaze. Arrange on layout, sticking down with 3D foam pads or wet glue. Decorate these with the wired leaves, curling the wires round a pencil as you go.

Add some journalling by cutting patterned paper into 9mm strips to feed through the Dymo gun. cut into short lengths sand to reveal the white core where the letters are, then ink. Stick in place over the journalling plates.
