Other Requirements:

  1. Chalk Ink (Versamagic jumbo java).
  2. White texture paste (colour slightly to create a light brown). You can use any paint or chalk to get the colour (bottom layer of the stencil).
  3. Acrylic paint (bronze), also mix it with texture paste (top layer of the stencil).
  4. Paint brush to colour the chippie.
  5. Foam strips to lift the fussy cut elements.

Assemble the page:

Paint the chippie. I only used the grid for this page. I used my paint brush to in the delicate little spaces. Allow to dry.

  1. Use Belle’s Books as the background sheet. I chalked all the edges.
  2. Use Biblichor and cut a piece 9 x 6 ½” (23 x 16.5 cm). Distress the edges. (Before using this page make sure you cut out the two sentiments required for the layering)
  3. Stick it on the page 1 ¼” (3 cm) from the top edge and 1 ½” 2.5 cm) from the left edge.
  4. Use the Reverse of Old Books sheet and cut a piece 11 x 5” (28 x 13 cm). Chalk the edges and stick on the page 2” (5cm) from the top edge and ½” (1.4 cm) from the left edge. This will go over Biblichor.
  5. Use the Bookshelf sheet BUT the reverse side and cut 3 pieces for the matting of the photos. I used the darker brown BUT you can choose any colour you prefer. Cut mattings 3 ¼ x 4 ¼”. (8.5 x 11.8 cm). Matt all 3 your photos on here.
  6. Stick it on the page on the Reverse of Old Books sheet.
  7. Use the Botanics sheet and cut 2 strips 6 x 2” (15 x 2.5cm). Distress the edges. Add 1 strip at the top on the right just tucking it under the Reverse of Old Books. Add the other strip at the bottom on the left.
  8. Now you can add all the fussy cut elements.
  9. I added some close ups of the layering.
  10. Also refer to the fussy cut sheet for the elements I used.
  11. I also used 3 books from the Old Books sheet.
