Sisters — By: Susan Cobb
 

Supplies:


Instructions

  1. Mat the first photo on blue textured paper, leaving an extra 2" of space at the right side. Mat on white, leaving a very thin border. Glue pink ribbon along the right edge of the photo. Glue the matted photo to the upper right portion of the striped background paper. Mat the other photo on blue, then white. Glue ribbon across the bottom edge of the mat. Glue the second matted photo beneath the first photo, as shown. Computer print or write journaling by hand on the blue textured paper with the black pen. Mat on white, then glue to the page beneath the second photo.
  2. Punch out the letters to spell "sisters" and sand the edges. Stamp flowers, bee, dragonfly, and swirl images on the individual letters (one at a time) with the glue pad, then add the flock over the glue image. Lightly press on the flock, then shake off the excess. Add more flock and repeat the process as needed. Allow flocked images to dry thoroughly.
  3. Place the open heart super sized brad with swirls and the solid white heart on the right side of the blue photo mat at the top of the page to check spacing. Make a mark at the edge of the paper with a pencil near where you want to stamp a bee, so it will be centered inside the open heart with swirls. Remove the super sized brads and stamp the bee with the glue pad. Flock the image and allow to dry. Use the glue pad to add a layer of glue to the two open heart super sized brads, then flock them. Stamp a flower on the center of the solid heart super sized brad and flock it. Stamp a flower onto a remaining piece of blue textured paper and flock it. Allow the pieces to dry thoroughly before handling.
  4. Once all pieces are dry, add the brads and ribbon to the letters and arrange overlapping on the left side of the page. Attach the flocked open heart with swirls over the bee on the photo mat, and add the solid white heart with flocked flower in the space beneath it. Add knotted ribbon as shown. Attach the remaining flocked heart super sized brad over the flocked flower image on blue textured paper. Trim around edges and attach it to the page between the second photo and "sisters". Add a mini brad at the flower center and bow as shown.
