Designer Tip: The Mocha holographic ripple paper goes perfectly with the Copper Color Me™ papers! The shine on both types of paper complements each other well. I used Medium Zots™ adhesive dots to adhere all the elements to the page, since it sticks well to textured surfaces.
- Protect your work surface with newspaper or a craft sheet. Place the medallion paper on your work surface and spray with Limolicious and Citrus Tickle Smooch® Spritz. Dab with a paper towel to remove excess Spritz from the copper areas. Set aside to dry. Repeat the spraying with a 12”x12” sheet of white cardstock and let dry.
- Cut an 8”x10 1/4” Vintage Label from Mocha ripple paper and glue to center of the medallion paper using Zots™ adhesive dots (8 around the edges is fine). Use a cosmetic sponge and dark brown fluid chalk ink to ink the edges of a 7”x5” photo. Mat the photo on the spritzed white cardstock, leaving a 1/4” border. Glue to the center of the Vintage Label. Place the template on the back of the ripple paper and trace the 8”x10 1/4” and the 7”x9” shapes. Cut out the outer line, then cut along the inner line. Trim 1 3/4” off of each of the pointed sides of the shape, creating brackets. Glue one bracket at the top with the point down and one at the bottom with point up.
- Cut out a 2 3/4” vintage label from the spritzed white cardstock and print a title on it. Cut out a 3”x4” label from ripple paper and glue the title to it. Mat the piece on spritzed cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Repeat this process for a second piece of journaling. Glue the title to the page 1” from the top and left and the other journaling piece 1” from the right and bottom. Zots™ adhesive dots are great to adhere things to the Color Me™ papers. Glue a knotted ribbon to the top of the title and bottom of the caption as shown.
