Afternoon All! It's Skye back again with my second project for the month!
This time round I chose to do a bit of a girly layout of myself and one of my lovely scrapping friends Marelle.
I have known Marelle through online scrapping forums for some time and got the chance last month to have dinner with her and some other mutual friends.
As soon as I saw the CB Beaded Curtain Borders in my product pack, I had visions of luxury.
I don't know what it is about them exactly, but I instantly wanted to paint them gold, so for this project, I did just that!
I didn't give them a base coat, as the raw chipboard acted as a perfect base for the gold colour and after two coats, I had a lovely metallic sheen.
For the next step, I backed each section with paper to make it stand out a little more from my background...
I love the arabian jewel type effect that I got!
I wanted this to be the main feature of my page, but a few other bits and pieces, including CB Shelby Alpha (both Upper and Lower case and Countdown Numbers) and a heart token from the CB Mini Tokens - Butterfly Kisses pack were just lightly inked or painted to complement the rest of the page.
And the best thing is that after cutting the curtain strips to size for my design, I still have two left in my pack to use on another layout! At 12 inches, they go such a long way when cut up!
As I had hoped, the beaded curtain provided a really great look for a girly layout that isn't too young or childish. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Thanks so much for looking!
