Alice in Vintage – Masculine Layout by Belinda

There is so much one can do with the Alice in Vintage paper range! It just lends itself to so many options, from cute and girly to masculine and beyond. For this reason, I chose to use photos of a breakfast date with a friend from the UK called Neil. Shamela and I have been online crafty friends with him for years. He came to Cape Town for a family visit and so we jumped at the chance to meet him. We met at Truth Coffee and took these photos.
Alice in Vintage - Masculine Layout - Belinda

I used the paper called Yesterday (LPPO0040) for the background to my double page. I like to get as many photos as possible on a layout, so I printed lots of little ones on my Selphy Printer as well as 3x 4×6 photos which I matted on cardstock from my stash (possibly also vintage as I’ve had it that long).

The 4 tags were cut from Up Up (LPPO0043) and the leftover strip was used to house the fourth tag in a pocket which I created by cutting a slit in the paper and then punching a circle at each end so that it doesn’t tear when you take the tag in and out. I like to hide my journaling as I am dyslexic and don’t want people to see my bad spelling! The tag is purposefully put at the top of the page so that it is easy to access when it is in a sleeve in my album.

Alice in Vintage - Masculine Tag

The info strip off Up Up with the feathers was used under my photos.

I cut the info strip off the bottom of the Imagination sheet and used it at the top of my photos and also cut the embellishments for my page from this sheet which I then matted on the same cardstock. All of them are raised on foam tape except for the Never stop dreaming square which is under the large penny farthing which I cut from the sheet as well.

The die cuts were done in chocolate brown cardstock to add interest to the page.

The giant penny farthing is a laser cut from my stash which I painted with the Ground Espresso Distress paint. All the embellishments, tags and paper strips were inked with Black soot Distress ink and the ribbon was coloured with Iced Spruce Distress ink.

I glued everything down with glossy accents because the fine nib gives me the accuracy I need for the delicate lettering which I added to the tags and then I don’t have issues with my pages falling apart in years to come.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw one of Belinda’s projects. It was mixed media, it was steampunk, it was layered, inked & exceptionally unique. For me, it was love at first sight. I have since followed Belinda’s work and have been amazed at the sheer talent, from paper crafts to modern art to mixed media installations of gigantic proportions! Belinda is an artist, a teacher and above all, she’s down to earth with a heart of pure gold… Read more here »
