Guest Artist - Sarah Schwerin Part 2

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 02, 2008

Here are some more fabulous creations by the ultra fabulous Sarah Schwerin!

* Darkroom Door Venetian Papers (All four designs).
* Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters
* Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint
* Tim Holtz Distress Inks
* Bazzill Cardstock
* Brads
* Carolee's Creations letter stickers.

The layout is based on a sketch from Becky Higgins' new "Scrapbook Page Maps" book.
Create the background by inking an entire piece of sandy-coloured Bazzill Cardstock with Black Soot distress ink, and rubbing over it with a wet piece of Cut'n'Dry foam.
Scratch the border into the cardstock with a paper piercer to reveal the sandy colour underneath.
Paint the Grungeboard letters with crackle paint and ink over them a little for more definition. I used crackle paint around the photo which I scratched off in some parts to give a more distressed look.
The heart shape was punched from the red venetian paper also.
I scratched out the background of the photo (a) because the background colour in the photo didn't look good with the papers, and (b) to again add a more grungey look. I also added some brads for texture.

Here's a close up of the title:

Thank You:
* Darkroom Door Full Bloom Photo Chips
* Darkroom Door Full Bloom Wordstrips
* Bazzil cardstock

Mount the Photochip and Wordstrip words onto bazzill cardstock. Emboss the background with a Cuttlebug machine and mount onto white bazzill. Attach to the card front. The words are raised using double sided foam mounting tape.

Thanks Sarah!
