LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever
Hello again dear crafty friends! Kim here with another share my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever using the beautiful, LemonCraft Violet Silence collection. Such a lovely selection of prettiness! Teamed with a little Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet and a few other pretties this layout came together quite quickly.
Here is my layout featuring my daughter, Samantha & her soon to be husband, Jake.
To create this background I took the sheet of LemonCraft Violet Silence paper 02, Tim Holtz Range Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet and a blender (I couldn’t find my blending tool, so I used a make-up sponge.) I added a little of the Distress Oxide to the sponge and went in and applied it roughly the centre of the page and trailing off the bottom of the page. I knew where I wanted my photo to sit, so I made sure to extend the oxide out. Next I spritzed a little water into my hand and then let the water droplets fall over the inked area at random. I then went in with some paper towel and dabbed up the excess water. Once this was dry I stuck two 1 cm x 20 cm strips of coordinating paper into place, under where my photo will sit. I then took some satin seam binding (cream ribbon) and purple ribbon, roughly 36 cm in length & tied them into a simple bow. I tied the bow more to the left of the lengths, giving me one short tail and one long tail, so I could drape it across the bottom of my photo.
Next, I matted my photo on a piece of leftover Violet Silence Paper 03, measuring 11 cm x 11 cm. My photo measured 10 cm x 10 cm. I stuck some cardboard from an unused pizza box to the bottom of my matted photo, to add a bit of height to my pic. I stuck the bows into place then stuck down my photo and arranged the long tails of the ribbon to twist and turn to add interest, once happy I stuck into place.Then I tucked some fussy cut flowers from the Violet Silence Paper 03 and also some flowers from the Violet Silence-Vintage Times 17 sheet. I also added some old lace & lace flowers I had laying around. A few flowers….. Prima Lavendar-Milane Paper Flowers never go astray and either does a fussy cut butterfly!
I am a big fan of machine stitching on layouts, so I decided to add two lines of stitching around my layout, but I stopped at the flower design on the paper. *Tip* When machine stitching on my layouts I like to use Topstitch or upholstery thread. This is thicker than your normal thread and gives a nicer result.
Next I added my title, I used stickers and matted them & carefully distressed the edges. Adding a little cardboard to the back to raise them slightly. Last but not least I added some Artquest Mini Prills in I Cannot Tell a Lilac
I do hope you have been inspired by my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever. I really enjoyed creating this layout and I simply love the colours!
