Travel- Art Banderoli GD



Its that time of the month again to reveal my layout for the Travel Album I'm making for the Russian Blog


I made this monochromatic beach layout. The background is from the Prima's Lifetime Collection. I also used Lyric and Engraver to accent the layout.


These Chipboard Chevrons, are the newest additions to the 2 Crafty family. I just love them so much. They come in different thicknesses and sizes all in one sheet.
Chevron Bits (units of 3)


I was asked this month to show a tutorial on how I curl my edges to make it look like tree bark.
I was more than happy to oblige and show my technique although its really quite simple.
I like to mimic the bark of a tree, therefore this technique works best if you have some kind of wood grain paper or a paper with wooden stripes







Here you have the final result and how I incorporated it into this layout.





Materials
Papers: Prima Lyric, Engraver and Lifetime collections
Flowers: Prima
Resin bird: Prima
Chevron Chipboard: 2 Crafty
Prima stamp 
Prima: chevron mask 6x6
Textured paste, cheese cloth
Prima fluid chalk ink: old road
Shells
black pen
Title: Pink Paislee
Ranger Black Archival ink


That's all for now folks!!
Have a fabulous day!!

Fabulous page, just like a seascape picture, love it!! Great idea to paint white to look like curls of bark. I sometimes make the curls for a fun finish, never thought about the bark look so thanks for the tip :)

The kraft and white with the blues and turquoises of that amazing photo couldn't be better... the shabby chic paint, and the stunning embellishing - going to bookmark this and study it in detail - wow!!
