so this is a simple easy page that can be done in any colour, just to get someone (anyone ?) started
I then added an 8 x 8 in bexley black , i laid it on the paper to see if i liked it. then i distressed the edges by rolling them over and ripping a bit. adding an ink pad to the edges. used tim holtz old paper distressed ink
see below, and then i stuck it down as shown.
Next i did the same with another piece of bexley black , this time matting it onto a piece of lincoln linen cut slightly bigger.
This is my chosen photo as its black and white its ideal. i have matted it onto some black card as above and then added it to the left side of the centre square
-and a black pen on this one
I have added a long piece of lincoln linen to fit down the right hand side of the centre grey square.
i then used some lincoln linen strips of sticky borders in the black flower shape,see below, i left the centres in the middle of the flowers so it would cover the printed text on the card. then using blitters and buttons for the centres
Next i used a button to cover the circle writing i didnt want and i did a bit of journaling on the card in black.
This is a matching page, i like to make a similar page to go on the facing page in my scrapbook. not the same, just similar
