Tuesday

spread your wings...

Last week I saw a 12x12 paper pad at Michaels and had to grab it.
I don't 'scrapbook' in the traditional sense, I don't do 12x12 pages and I don't do pre-printed pages... but... oh my gosh- the images inside were just too cute to pass up. I figured there would be some way to use the papers. And it was the only pad left, so I had to decide then and there!

This is what I ended up with- a 'collage' of sorts... using the pre-printed page, some 7Gypsies tags and rubber stamps.

Each paper had 2 sheets, so I used one sheet to cut out the words 'spread your wings' and also the top portion of the girl and her wings. Using layers of chipboard underneath (sometimes just one layer, other times multiple layers to get a variety of depth) I attached those to the matching sheet.

The same technique was used on the tags. Three of them had only 1 layer of chip underneath but the bottom right corner tag has 4 layers- I really wanted that one to 'pop' off the page.

A few sentiments with rubber stamps and it was done.

For now, it hangs above my sewing machine. I think I'll make a couple more from that same pad- it really has some cute images in it.

Spread your wings!
