August Page Kit ~ Vicki

You can really feel Vicki’s adventurous spirit in her layout this month! All the skewed blocks and chalky accents really mellow out the pretty paper.

There are so many little details to see in Vicki’s layout:

One cool little detail is her stitching on the patterned paper. This is a quick effect that looks great. You just need to poke the holes with a awl (or similar tool) and thread the twine through with a large gauge needle. While I might not recommend this for a large amount of stitching (as it would be time consuming!), for a short strip like Vicki has done, it is quick and easy!

Vicki used a water-based white paint pen to add her own little leaves around the layout. Paint pens are great because they will show up even on black paper. She also used the paint pen to add some details to her flower petals to make them pop.

Vicki also applied some of her glitter to the bottom of her flower petals. She did this by applying scor tape (double-sided tape) to the underside of the petals she wanted to glitter, and then fussy cutting off the excess tape around the edges of the petals. She then applied the glitter to the tape and burnished it for a smooth finish and curled up the edge of the petal to show off her work!
