Guest Designer Erika Taylor – Day One28 June 2012 | By Beth in Uncategorized
Today we’re thrilled to welcome (or welcome back!) Erika Taylor. She’ll be guesting with us for three days, so be sure to stop in and check out all the great projects. Here’s Erika!
Hello everyone!!! It has been a while since I’ve been on the Basically Bare Blog, but I’m super excited to be a Guest Designer over the next few days.
My name is Erika Taylor and I am so honored to share with you a few projects over the next 3 days using Basically Bare products. These products are absolutely amazing to work with and I’ve had fun creating this first project for you.
Today I’m going to share with you a layout I created using the Betty’s Brackets Mini Album. First off I took a few chipboard pages out of the album and applied Gesso to one side. After that was dry, I liberally spritzed the chipboard with a combination of Lavender and Be Mine Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. I wanted even more texture, so I used a mask and some molding paste to create a design on the one corner.
Now here is the fun part. To create the shaped page, I laced together the two chipboard pages with ribbon to create a single page perfect for my layout. The hand dyed silk ribbon is finished off with a triple bow at the bottom. Pretty isn’t it???
The perfect way to deconstruct a mini album and make it into a Scrapbook Layout. I love the way that ribbon looks and it was super easy to create. Here is the finished project for you.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I would love to hear your comments and 1 lucky commenter over the next 3 days will win an assortment of Basically Bare goodies from me to you!!!
