Submission post for The Robin’s Nest DT call

Sorry Italian friends, this post is in English only.

Hello everybody, this is my post for applying to a spot on The Robin’s Nest DT… wish me good luck! I worked with them in the past 6 months and I loved their product so much, so I would love to stay for another term. They have the most amazing papers and lovely embellishments.

I made a photographic step by step to make this layout titled “Real Life”:


I add a strip of patterned paper in the centre. I previously distressed it to create texture:P1110694

Tip: remember to cut away the backside of paper in the point where they are glued togheter with an exacto knife, so you can keep this scrap for future projects.


Next I cutted I cutted in a half a doily and glued as shown.  P1110696

I layered the picture, distressed the paper and glued all down this way:P1110697

I created a scalloped border to a piece of paper and glued it as shown:P1110698

I created banners from glittered cardstock, distressed them and glued them this way:P1110699  

I added a tag cutted from one of the cards in “Saffron” pack:P1110700

I used die cut pieces from “Leafy Green” mini die cut pack and archival seeds to decorate the layout. I love to attach archival seed in both their sides to create movement.

Tip: I use to create group of three little embellishments – like archival seeds, or dew drops – to create a visual triangle that catch the sight. It is a simple composition rules that really helps to create a balanced page.P1110702
