Graphic 45 Renaissance Faire May Madness!!


Graphic 45 is having a  Renaissance Faire May Madness contest on their site. You must use the Ren Faire pp for your project. This is one of my favorite lines from G45. It's so rich and warm in color..beautiful!

I started by cutting and distressing the edges of my first pp, Enlightened. I then inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. For the next layer, I cut a sheet of Florentine, distressed the edges just a bit and inked some more.

I used Tim Holtz "Hanging Sign" Die Cut to tie to the next piece of this beautiful paper. I cut out a part of the Renaissance Faire paper, used some more Vintage Photo ink, and used twine to tie it to the sign.

I used several layers of different ribbon and cut out branches from my Cricut. I made the flowers by myself and added them to the branches.

Made another flower out of burlap, twine and scraps of Awakening paper. Added some hinges to the photo. The photo is doubled. I used a 4x6 on the bottom and laid a 3x5 on top. Used pop up glue dots for dimension.
I took 3 Ren Faire tags and covered them with Crackle Accents to make them look 'old'. And cut out a bird with some more of the Awakening pp.

I really loved making this layout. Graphic 45 is in my top 3 papers. If you're interested in being a part of the contest or just looking for some wonderful vintage here.

I thank you for stopping by and hope you get inspired to create something wonderful today!!
Till next time...Happy Scrappin!
