Here is my layout for the Frosted Designs challenge blog. This week's project is Distressing. I am working on Tyler's high school book, and this is his Freshman picture and schedule.
I started out by creating my background paper. I used my Cricut Imagine and the Snapshot: Texture cartridge to create the brick paper. The shape is one of the Imagine features, and the paper started out white. The Imagine printed the shape, then cut it out.
I used my Stazon black ink on the edges of the paper.
I used my Tim Holtz Distresser to rough up the edges of the cardstock, then I inked them.
I cut out the star on my Cricut for my journaling tag. I wanted to stamp lines on it, so I used the negative piece to cover up the red shadow as I already attached the blue star to it!
I stamped one of my journaling stamps. I wanted the star at an angle, but not the lines.
I like this stamp as it looks a bit distressed all on its own!
I triple matted my photo so it fit the layout better. I used my computer to type up Tyler's schedule, matted with the brick red cardstock and distressed the edges. I also put a staple with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher ~the staples are soooo tiny and cute. I stapled the words before I glued them to the page.
Here is the finished layout.
