Hi everyone Marelle here!

I have been playing with the gorgeous papers from the Heritage range - I thought I would share my work with you today.

Materials I used:

  • One sheet of Fabscraps Heritage Script Paper
  • Fabscraps large brass cameo : I painted it red to match the mist
  • Book Paper - from an old Dictionary
  • X-Press It Double Sided Tape size:6mm
  • X-Press It Glue Marker
  • X-Press It Clear Glue
  • Canvas alphas
  • Red Mist
  • Small black and white photograph
  • Cream Canvas alphas
  • Script stamp
  • Black stamp pad
  • Black scrapbooking pen

I have a created a simple layout that uses only one small black and white photo, I like the use of lots of negative space which draws your attention not only to the photo, but to the altered cameo. I used X-Press it clear glue to attach the cameo to the page - it is the best adhesive clear glue I have ever used ! It sticks so well there is not a worry about embellishments falling off your page when you use X-Press it clear glue!
I also enjoyed using the X-Press it Glue Marker for the tiny alphas on this layout - it worked like a dream!
To further draw the eye to the photo I used some red mist and sprayed the ink at the top of the page and tapped the paper to dribble the mist down, and I repeated the same process across the page to form a "frame like" appearance.

I love this particular paper as it lends itself to a simple layout such as mine. I cannot wait to try some mixed media on it for a completely different look!

I love showing the flexibility of Fabscraps products, whether you like simple layouts or busy artsy ones Fabscraps will have the paper and embellishments to assist you to achieve an amazing project.
