Naughty but Nice! – Echo Park – Farmer’s Market 2 – Wendy Meffan
Hi Everyone! It’s Wendy here again sharing two more layouts from The Farmer’s Market Echo Park Collection.
I started this layout with a mixed media background using Scattered Straw distress oxide as the colour was a good match to the tones in the photo. As a design feature I wanted to use the shapes from the photo on my layout I decided to make a large circle which I sewed with black thread. I then cut the photo into a circle and matted it using a circular die for the background, echoing the shape of the pudding glass. Then I cut some triangles from the papers in the 6×8 paper pad, which co ordinated to the cocktail glass. I sewed along their edges and raised them on sticky fixers.
The white tag with the words was perfect for the layout as it related to the pudding and then I used it as a template to create two more tags. I distressed their edges and then tucked them in behind the photo. I used hemp string in the tags.
I then added stickers and ephemera from the collection around the photo.
Finally I created the title in gold thickers around the circle edge and used some water colour paint splatters to the layout.
I decided to make an extra layout as I had some of the ephemera left over and some stickers from the stickers sheet.
This was a very quick layout to make using torn paper strips down the side for a border and then matting the photo on paper from the 6×8 paper pad. I then arranged a collection of the ephemera, pieces from the cut apart sheet and stickers down the page. I distressed the edge of every piece and raised them on sticky fixers.
At the top left of the layout I created a small cluster to balance the page.
This collection is so versatile so do take a look if you’ve not seen it before.
We love to see your payouts too so don’t forget to post them on the Hey Little Magpie Chat and Inspiration Facebook page.
Till next time …. Happy Scrapping!
