May 4th - Mission Accomplished - Deadline Apr 26th

Post by Jane on Thu Mar 19, 2015 6:42 pm

8th May is the 70th Anniversary of VE day so we are going to feature the Armed Forces in some way.
Could be flags, poppies, stamps etc.
I'm going to ask Jenny Mayes of HobbyArt if she can be guest designer or at least give us some pics of samples using her
Stamps which feature Soldiers.

Let us know your thoughts on this please....

I decided to make a scrapbook layout commemorating VE day using old bunting, newspapers and photos discovered in Aunty Jane's belongings.......



(Actually I'm kidding, I just had fun making the bunting and bits.)


To make the bunting I measured and trimmed some white card to size.


I used the mask and Distress Markers to add the flag to the pieces.


Then, it was time to add a little "age". So they were cumpled into a ball.


Opened out and a Distress ink pad swiped over the top to catch the creases.


I used a moist wipe to blend the colours before punching holes and threading the flags onto string.


I aged a couple of images and began to stick everything down. 


I finished by adding some stamped detail and ephemera;


and distressing and inking the edges.
