Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you the project I created for CropChocolate. I had purchased one of their Basic Grey grab bags and grabbed the Obscure Collection. Can I say that this is the one I did NOT want? I had to find a way to be creative with it and make the collection work for me. This is what resulted.
I started by preparing my photos and their mats. I cut using the largest label and then drew around the outside of the die to get the layering mat. I roughed up the edges and used Walnut Stain Distress ink.
Three different Martha Stewart punches were used to add accents to the layout.
This is what it looked like prior to adding in the torn black cardstock. All of the other paper is Basic Grey.
The photos were layered on top of the black. I used a white pen to add stitch lines around the bottom of the photos and to write the date.
The letters are also from the collection and I added dots to one side of them just for a little bit of pizazz since it was sitting on the black and looking a bit dull.
I used the arrow on the right with the dots on the opposite side to push your eye back to the finished design.
This was definitely work for me on this one. I wanted to only feature the collection. On that note Mission Possible and Accomplished. I was so jazzed that I pulled five more photos that I plan to use for 2 two-page layouts using Obscure.
