Beginnings - Layout Step by Step

Beginnings Layout



Step by Step:

Paper trimmer, Scissor, scalpel, metal ruler and edge distresser.
Glue or double side tape, and foam mount.
Optional: Lace punch set

Papers/Embellishments:
Zephyr Tabarette
Zephyr Gramercy
Zephyr Zanella
Zephyr Wood Clocks
Zephyr Chipboard Stickers

Kaiser craft Rhinestones



To start this layout fussy cut the whole sheet of the Zephyr Tabarette so you have a lot of the flowers ready to go then place them aside. 



Grab the sheet of Zephyr Gramercy and around the middle white edge cut it out till you have the centre piece missing.


          
                                      
Grab your edge distresser and distress the edge of your centre piece and also do this to your outer piece. The Prima paper is thick so just keep working the distresser around till you get the desired effect.  If you don’t have a distresser you can skip this part).           



Using the Zephyr Zanella trim it so you can see about 1 ½ inches around the whole piece this will also vary if your using a boarder punch but you want to be able to hide the gap of the layering background piece to the top piece. If you don’t have a boarder punch you can either leave it plain or distress it.

Now to add height to the top layer that we cut of the centre of the pattern paper, use a fair amount of foam mount on the backside of this layer as you don’t want it to squash down the middle. Peel off the backing and place it in the centre of the Zanella piece.

You also at this point want to stick your photo down in approximately in the centre of this piece.



So using the fussy cut flowers you’re going to place some foam mount on some and start building your flower layers up starting in the left hand corner and you will continue around the bottom of the photo and a little bit up the right hand side. You can also place some underneath the top layer to add more dimensions.



Decide on your title from the Zephyr Chipboard Stickers and they have adhesive on them already sometimes it’s hard to find the edge of the sticker, you can use your scalpel to help you peel it way.  You will also need to use a Zephyr Wood Clock you can stick this down with double sided tape or your glue. 



To add more definition between the layers just curl it with your thumb until you’re happy with the results.  To finish off the layout use you’re Kaisercraft Rhinestones around the page.
