October Build-a-Page

Prima's October Build-a-Page is here!  Check out the sketch:

And here's my interpretation:

The background paper is my very favorite Prima paper ever, which I am hoarding as it is now out of print.

I layered a hand cut scallop strip with a border punched scallop strip.  I like the combination of perfect and imperfect.

I'm getting more into the idea of "hiding" elements.  You can see the butterfly page pebble just sticking out from behind the flower.

I cut this journaling spot and the surrounding flowers from a piece of patterned paper and then fed it through my typewriter.

To create the bracket shape, I traced a Crafter’s Workshop template.  There wasn’t enough contrast with the doily, so I inked the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.  It's subtle, but it helps the shape to pop.

If you feel inspired by the sketch, you can create a layout using Prima products and be entered to win a Prima prize pack!  Details are here.
