Friday with Sizzix # 2

Hi, it's Friday and I'm playing with Sizzix!

Creating this layout was so much fun... using a little bit mixed media, cutting apart diecuts and embossed pieces, clustering them around the photo and more! Let me tell you how I did it.

1. I embossed a piece of cream cardstock using the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders-Sewing, and cut around the embossed piece to create a frame for my photo.
2. I die cut a few flowers from cardstock and an old map using BIGkick Machine and Bigz Die Flower, Daisy # 5.
3. I also die cut a music note border using Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Sheet Music.
4. I lay out the diecut flowers in a cluster to create a photo mat on the patterned paper background.
5. Then I layered the photo and the cut out embossed frame on top.
6. I cut up pieces from the sheet music border and attached them near the photo.
7. With the pieces in place, I applied some gesso below the photo and let it dry.
8. I spelled out the title using mini alpha stickers and added some floral washi tape to create contrast.
9. I journaled on the gessoed area.
10. To add a little color, I misted the embossed frame with pink Glimmer Mist and doodled around it with yellow watercolor pencil.

11. I out lined some parts of the embossed and colored frame and die cut flowers with a black pen.
12. I machine stitched to secure the elements as well as to add texture.
13. Finally, I splattered some white and some turquoise paints on to the page making sure to safely cover the photo first.

Here's what I used to create my layout.
