On a Paris Corner

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.


More brushy detail with the October Afternoon Travel Girl “Streets of Paris” stamp; stamped in JBS Cough Syrup ink.


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!! 

Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterened paper, BasicGrey Mint Julep naomi, Amy Tangerine Ready, Set, Go; Banner flags, rubber stamp: October Afternoon Travel Girl; Printed bag: Pebbles; Paper tape, rub-ons, stamping ink: Jenni Bowlin Studio; Chipboard alpha: BasicGrey Mint Julep; Wood veneer: Claudine Hellmuth HSN; Multi-medium: Claudine Hellmuth Studio; Thread: Coats and Clark; Pen: Zig Millennium; Other: brads, ribbons.

Some of you have been asking me about the Photocopy Transfer Process.  The next time I do one I will create a tutorial, so sit tight…lol!!   Also, the majority of this layout was created with the June 2013 Papercrafting Kit from JBS Mercantile.  This kit is now 25% off and Jenni is having a big sale on past kits this month!
