Hi I joined in the July To Die for Challenge over at http://berry71bleu.blogspot.com.au/ Having to use dies was simple, I had the perfect photo I had been waiting to put to good use on a journal page.
I used cog die strips around the border of my journal page. I also cut out a couple of cogs for the title tab. Using a sheet of Print Blocks paper with checker plate pattern, I used some gesso to cover a fair bit of the page.
Then I used my favourite mesh stamp and using Stampin Up Concord Crush I stamped the mesh all over the page. As I am a fan of using foil tape out it came, and using my checker plate embossing folder I ran it through the big shot. Blue and Red alcohol inks were then applied to the foil.
By adding some chipboard cogs to the title tab and a Memories vellum word seemed to finish it nicely.
I fussy cut the photo and placed it onto a die cut as the photo mat. The photo is of my Dad with his great grand daughters Kirra & Khloe. They often go for a ride on the quad bike together.
Thanks for dropping by, Sharon
