These pages for Rachel's book kind of had a mind of their own. They ended up being much more complicated than originally intended, but they worked up really fast and I am happy with the end result. I knew that I wanted to do a Steampunk themed layout for her - 'cause she's cool like that!
So I pulled out my steampunk papers and dies and went from there. I used dies from Sizzix/Tim Holtz, Memory Box & Spellbinders and cut them from Elizabeth Crafts metallic Shimmer Sheets then distressed them with a sanding block and black soot Distress Paint for a more industrial look. Can't take credit for this technique which I saw on Shelly Hickox blog a while back. Love the effect one gets!
Each page is actually multiple pages joined with Washi Tape with some detail cutting and lots of 3-D additions!
