CARD:

PAGE LAYOUT:

Here is the page I have created:)

Did you catch my post the other day about Authentique Paper’s secret?

https://polkacabana.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/authentique-paper-secret-qualities/

On this layout, I have used the same technique.

I came up with this idea, because I love both sides of double sided paper and am sad to only use 1 side of the paper.

Here you can see I have already seperated the paper I wanted to use..Yep, I separated a whole 12 x 12 sheet of paper.

The blue is just plain cardstock and the yellow is a piece of old DP that I will not use, it in only being used as my “CANVAS”.

I have already made the base of my page.  I made the paper ruffle down the middle with strips of separated papers from the GLOWING line.

Now I am focusing on the TITLE for the layout. Using one of the HEADLINES from SPLENDID, I used the same process and separated the 2 sides of the HEADLINES from each other.

Here is a close up. Can you see how cotton/fabric like the inside of the paper is?

Here I have all the pieces ready to assemble.  I am building the title on scraps left over from the HEADLINES piece.

Here I have gathered my ruffle and sewn it to the back of a scrap that I pre measured to the length I wanted.

This is the BACK side.

Here is the RIGHT side all stitched up and ready for the rest of the title.

I used this ruffle technique in different places on my page.

I love the extra shabby/worn look the paper gets when it is separated.

All of the main pieces on this page are just 1 layer of the double sided papers.

I used some of the icons to make the custom EPOXY buttons.

I think they add such a nice touch.

 Have to have some Authentique rolled flowers, right?

All in all, I really like the way this page turned out.

 It will be a page I treasure for a long time.

 Here is one last peek.

 I would love for you to join the challenge.  You can do either a card or scrapbook page.  You do not have to own Authentique Products to participate, we would encourage you too, but it is not mandatory.

At this time the prizes can only be shipped to US or CAN.

But the key word here is PRIZE!

You can win some of this fabulous paper to have all to yourself.

Go over to the blog and get inspired by our creative DT and join along!

    OOO How did you edit the photos? LOVE the color effects you are getting there. Sorry I haven’t been commenting as of late- I’m really in a time crunch. I loved the paper separating technique tutorial last week- it’s incredibly painstaking but worth it to get the kind of paper that ruffles and twists into flowers so nicely. LOVE the sewn borders too.
