Hi again, I hope your September is going well. I am still in my infatuated with Ola Khomenok stage and so once again I chose another of her fabulous designs. This is a link to her video tutorial.
So, here is my layout in response to our current ‘Case a Designer’ challenge this month.
The papers are some new ones I just got under the DCWV brand that have some lovely foiled copper pages throughout which allows you to make some beautiful embellishments to use in your design. I wanted lots of different types of embellishments in my layout to make up for some of the amazing elements Ola has to use. My main frame is from Dusty Attic which I embossed using green, pink and copper embossing powders. My use of the Pretty Blossoms Digital Download played a large part in my use of ephemera, I printed them out on white card and then painted them roughly with some cheap glitter paints as I only wanted the colour to be subtle, cut them out and then added pearls and sequins or whatever into the middles to make them have a little bit of bling. I do love my bling.
There are quite a few die cut pieces, but these are from dies collected over time and removed from their packaging, but obviously you just use whatever you have in your stash and bring it all together, building up layers and then finishing up with a few more bits of shiny stuff. All done, seems so simple, but it honestly takes me about 3 days to do a layout like this. I am quite sure that I spend the most time just staring it and wondering what to do, what to use, trying to remember everything I have in my stashes. But, if you watch Ola, she just throws it all together, so quickly and effortlessly. Clearly I need to practice more …. ohhh, if I have toooooo. Like, my pleasure, hehehe. I have done a few of these layouts now, to see more of them, please visit Jacobi Creations or my Jacobi Creations Blog.
That’s all for now, have a lovely week. Delia
