Fabscraps DT - Bundle of Joy

"Bundle of Joy"

I have used the Fabscraps Baby Bears 1 Collection

1- Using paper C57 008 cut the inside out leaving a border as thick as you would like, I've done mine approx 1/2", I have also not cut it straight making a kind of waving pattern, Distress and ink both the inside and outside of the border carefully so as to not break the paper.

2- Use C57 007 as your background paper, placing the C57 008 over the top, you may find you will need to cut a very small strip of 2 sides of this paper so it fits perfectly behind border paper.
Add some texture paste with a mask in the corners of this paper and lightly ink them when paint is ddry.

3- As this page is for a boy I have cut the bow of the baby in the pram on the chipboard word DC57 00, it has then been inked with distress ink and edges touched with a paint brush and gesso.

4- Cut a strip of paper from C57 008 from the bunny side, approx 1.5 rows of bunnies, use a border punch leaving a full row of bunnies visible, cut into 3 pieces, ink each piece along the punched edge and crush up the punch edge to give it some detail. Pop them under the edge of the C57 008 paper on the top and 2 sides of your page.

5- Cut the small rocking horse from MC57 009

6- Cut the matching trim from the ribbon sheet MC57 008 and crinkle it back and forward to create a ruffle border.

7- Take some leaves and flowers from MCDC58 006 - MCDC58 002 - MCDC58 and slightly wet them and crumple them up gently, unfold and let them dry, I have used a die-cutter to cut more petals out of C%& 008 and using the same wet, crumple method to create some more matching flowers, layer them how you would like and ink the edges.

8- Taking the journal tag from MC57 005 cut it in half, ink the edges and tug one half under the photo at the top and the other under the photo on the left side.

9- Using the small chipboard feet from DC57 012 ink and gesso them the same at the words.

9- I've added some hessian ribbon & loose threads along with some little roses, add your journal details.
