Hello everyone!! Today, I’m bringing you a new Paris layout (the last of the graffiti shots, I think). I used floral patterned paper by BasicGrey from the Mint Julep collection and light-hearted embellishments as a contrast to this grittier side of Paris.
On this layout I did a large photocopy transfer of the actual photo on the right. This time with the transfer I was experimenting with the application of the multi-medium by not brushing it on evenly in some areas, so I would get a loose brushy effect. [It reminds me of a technique I remember seeing in photography where you brush the emulsion on the paper before you develop the image.] Even though I’m happy with the results of this transfer, I don’t know that I would attempt such a large one again, especially on this paper weight. It did turn out to be one of my most lumpy and bumpy layouts.
A brushy transfer detail with some Jenni Bowlin Studio Notebook Grid Paper Tape.
I just can’t get enough of patterned paper showing through transfers.
And here getting a little labor intensive; cutting out the individual arrows from the awesome Jenni Bowlin Studio Tiny Trims Revised rub-ons in Gold. Also, playing with the JBS/Fiskars Ticket Please punch.
I created this embellishment by layering the October Afternoon Travel Girl Sew Fun Banners over the red polka dotted flag I cut from the Pebbles Printed bag. I love how the bag is a bit transparent, like the paper tape, and the photo transfer.
I used the BasicGrey Mint Julep collection alphas to create the title that I layered over more stamping. I only inked up a portion of this large stamp to get the effect I wanted.
I know….so many details, so little time!!
