Begin by adhering scraps of book pages, hymnals etc to a 12 x 12 sheet of Scrapbook paper. Turn the pages in different directions, don’t worry about if it is upside down, just have fun adhering the paper. I used the Glue Sponge container and a foam brush. Use what you feel works best for you. This is my version of a Franken Page foundation.
Stamp various images on top of the new Franken page base. Rotate the stamps so that these are going in different directions. It’s okay if the image doesn’t come out perfect, this is a background and we are just creating interest.
Begin adding bits of lace and papers. I like to add color to ivory and/or white lace pieces with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. This way I don’t have to have a bunch of colors of lace I can keep that stash smaller and use the Tattered Angels as it has a wider variety of uses than a piece of colored lace.
The Best Glue Ever is perfect when paired with the No-Clog Writing Cap for getting glue placed precisely. I like to add it to smaller bits so that they don’t lift from the project.
Use Distress ink around the edges of the papers. It gives more depth to the project. Use those tools that you own. I’ve had my Silhouette Cameo 3 for almost two years and I love using it for a variety of projects. Like the little words, I add to my projects.
Adding flat back rhinestones with Embellie Gellie makes it so easy. Before I would have rhinestones go flying when I used tweezers. Did you enjoy the Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial? Making your own collaged journal cards is easy if you just relax and let things fall into place. Don’t over think. Lay out a few items and play around with placement. If you don’t like it then change it up. Sometimes I’ll lay things out and then walk away and do other things. When I come back it becomes clear how it should be put together. Have fun and don’t stress. 😉
I have a few sets in my shop if you want to have some as examples or to use in your projects. It is much appreciated to have support from my wonderful followers. Thank you so much!
