JANUARY PAGES COMPLETE...

Well here it is... my first month completed and uploaded....Not sure if it is very interesting reading tho....(apart from 28th when we got very excited about Morgan being asked to train with Aberdeen Football Club's Youth Development Team...Morgan is a goalkeeper)....




And here is my February pages done and ready for their days to be added....

First of all I stamped and embossed the Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry corner in black... I then used a script stamp which I stamped all over in versamark and then clear embossed....


I did the same with the other page, except I turned the corner... then I used a dauber to apply Worn Lipstick distress ink all over... I took the iron on a medium dry setting and some baking paper and ironed over the top... unfortunately it kinda melted the black image out of focus (which wasn't meant to happen) so then I decided not to melt the same image on the other page but I did manage to smear it with the iron...Duh!!! never mind it will be fine once the squares are on...lol...


I did like the effect it left, but it's not very clear on the picture.... I then butted the two pages together and used the same script stamp with Vintage Photo distress ink


I turned the pages again and butted them together so I could stamp the Frame and Love which are from the Urban Grunge set so each half is on opposite pages in Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip..... I edged both pages with Worn Lipstick and then again with Vintage Photo...



I found this technique on Red Lead PaperWorks Everyday which they have just added to their blog.... They used it on tags so I have just scaled it up... I really like the effect and only realised after that it was a nice warm lovey theme for Valentines' month....Hope you like...xoxo
