My name is Debs Wood, and I’ve been invited by Chrissy and Paul to be one of the designers for Merly Impressions.
My first post is the Merly Impressions challenge. As I have a brand new Grandson, I was given the beautiful Pitter Patter Collection to use. I knew as soon as I saw this beautiful collection, that I wanted to recreate a paper quilt.
I cut nine 3×3 squares using the 12×12 paper and paper from the paper pad. The edges were roughed up using a paper edger and fake stitches were added using a black journaling pen. Photos were mounted on card stock and then placed on the quilt effect using mounting foam dots. I also used various elements from the Collectables pack.
I’m not keen on my hand writing, and think it makes my journaling look messy. So I did my journaling on Word using a typewriter font, drew around the sentences in black journaling pen and then cut it into strips. The final finishing touch was the lovely paper blooms.
I hope you enjoyed my layout.
You have until 2nd of September to add your creation to the gallery under the August Challenge post.
