For the April Reveal I created six layouts with the
trio kit you can see HERE. I showed you the first
one on Wednesday HERE then I took a bit of a
break - sorry about that!! Here is the 2nd layout -
"You are Priceless to Us" using the gorgeous
new Jenni Bowlin "Magpie" papers.
I decided on the title based on the paper, which is a
Vintage-inspired Bank/Accounting paper, so the title
"You are Priceless to us" I thought was very fitting.
I inked the edges of the "bank paper"with pink,
then adhered it to the green cardstock, which I
first added some stencilling to using the new
Crafter's Workshop Reverse Chicken wire stencil,
which works so well with the hexagon design in the
Magpie Collection printed papers .
I also used the stencil on the bank paper, aswell as a
Heidi Swapp Spotted stencil too (using Color Box
Creamy Brown ink). I stamped using an AWESOME
new Kadomo Ink stamp I bought off Etsy. (made in
Japan - out of rubber & mounted on wood - so much
more preferable to acrylic unmounted stamps I think).
I inked the papers and layered them up, together with a
Seven Gypsies tag insert (with the letters A - D on it),
then added my title using the AWESOME Prima alphas.
I inked the plastic tape measure provided, using Creamy Brown,
to age it a bit, added some of the gorgeous Bella! Bling, and
created an embellishment using a doily from my own stash,
together with a repeat of the doily design, stamped onto
cardstock, then raised up on 3D tape, with the
BEAUTIFUL Maya Road burlap flower finishing it off!
I hand-journaled my message & inked up the
Maya Road wooden butterflies then varnished
them with my glittery nail-varnish! You can
see, in the photo below, that I varied the pressure
so that the butterflies were each slightly different.
Lastly I added some of my own bling to enhance
the diagonal flow of the design and reinforce the
I loved working with these papers & loved the mix
of Maya Road with them. Maya Road have some
amazing new product this season!!
