Today I am posting one of my personal favorite pages. Funny how when you have no idea what you want to create but somehow you make something anyway! My best pages usually happen that way - and when I think too hard, well, they end up looking a mess :-)
This page started with a piece of base card stock from a paper stack by K & Co. Then I took 3 random pieces of paper (2 patterned and one solid), tore them to the size I wanted and inked up the edges really well. The green piece of cardstock I slid my Vintage Photo Distressed Ink across the top of it back and forth to give it that aged look.
The next thing was cutting a small piece of fabric (sheer liner) and wound it around a notecard that I cut out of a page from the Tim Holtz Lost & F0und paper stack where I journaled. I used Scotch Quick Dry Glue underneath to glue the fabric and the card down. Then layering the three distressed pieces of cardstock, I pulled out my trusty little sewing machine and did some messy random stitching (you will find that the sewing machine is NOT my strong point) :-)
Under the green piece of cardstock I took 3 strips of sheer ribbon and glued one end down. To hold the opposite end down I used some pewter looking grommets (or gromlets - I have no idea!)The little lion card and clock were cut from the Tim Holtz Lost & Found Paper stack as well and thrown in for accents. Glued a little watch part down on top of the clock and stuck a couple of buttons on as well.
The sentiment was from a book of vellum sayings I had that were all baby related. Once it was cut out I used little nail head looking brads to hold it down with a heart gem stone in the top right corner.
