Hey it’s Ali here today!
What do you do when you love both sides of a paper? As I was looking at the papers in the new Limelight collection, I totally fell in love with Arise, it has a hessian side that looks so real, but then I flipped it and discovered a beautiful text print – I am a sucker for text! Oh no!! I only have one!
There was only one solution, chop it up and use both sides!
I taped it across the back and ran it through my sewing machine.
Next stop, stencil and Distress Ink ‘Mowed Lawn’, and a little flick of ink…of course!
I used another smaller stencil and swiped some paint through it. Whilst it was wet I flicked a bit more ink so that it would meld in with the paint.
All ready for the finishing touches!
Pretty much everything here is from the Collectables pack, apart from the punched circles and a handful of punched butterflies.
How brilliant does that hessian look?
Love the way the background text shows through the stamped sentiment.
A final flourish of twine; another essential in my crafty stash 😉
Hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into my layout process. Thanks for popping in today,
