Happy Friday everyone! I'm officially in a very relaxed summer mode . . . sleeping in, hanging out by the pool, staying up late and watching my favorite reality TV shows, etc. I haven't been scrapping much at all over the past couple of weeks and I've just been enjoying time with my family and friends. Ahhhhhhhhh . . . so nice.
I'm often asked to do 2-page scrapbook layouts for my Creating Keepsakes assignments. For me, making 2-page spreads is very different from making 1-page layouts. But they're fun to do because they challenge my creativity. My 2-pagers always come out looking more "clean & simple" and linear than my single page layouts. Here's one I did a while back:
I made the tree by hand-cutting fabric and coloring it with Shimmerz Spritz. I cut the trunk from some specialty corrugated cardboard. I made the apples by coloring plain rhinestones with alcohol ink.
I created a quick little video for Creating Keepsakes showing how to do this simple technique: Coloring Rhinestones Video
