Cariena’s Like a Sir! Monsieur Layout

When I saw the AMAZING Like a Sir! collection by Lady Pattern Paper, I immediately knew that I wanted to use it to create a single page layout using two passport photos of my grandfather I found in a box. The colours are perfect for older photos or black and white.

I trimmed the b-side of Like a Sir! Mister Right (LPPO0054) slightly smaller than my Kraft background and then distressed the edges. My chosen technique for this layout was Gold Heat Embossing. I dabbed VersaMark Ink strategically through the script part of the Le Mask – Penny-Farthing Mini Mask (LPPM0001) stencil (which I cut in two pieces so that I could use the Penny Farthing separate from the script). I then sprinkled on Gold Embossing Powder which I melted using my Heat Tool. When the embossing had cooled off, I used a dark brown ink and the same stencil to create a kind of “shadow” effect, by offsetting the stencil from the heat embossed area.

I die cut several elements using various of the papers in the collection and then decided to enhance the elements by using Heat Embossing. I chose Gold as an accent colour to the collection. I dabbed some VersaMark Ink through the stencil and covered one of the Holy Chip! Playing Cards Chipboard (LPPC0001) elements with a thin layer of Gesso to make inking it easier. When the Gesso was dry, I simply dabbed on some Rhubarb Stalk Memento Dye Ink. While it was still wet, I sprinkled the chipboard with Gold Embossing powder and melted it. I love the detail. I die cut several of the elegant borders using my die cut machine and layered them onto each other for dimension. I then just dabbed some VersaMark Ink here and there, sprinkled it with Embossing Powder and melted it with my heat tool. The photo mat was cut from one of the pattern papers and I simply inked the edges and while the ink was still wet, covered it with Gold Embossing Powder and melted it.

I finished the layout off by creating a Rosette and adding some metal elements.
