Or should I say “two lips?” LOL! When my daughter posted this picture on Facebook I knew it had to get a special page in the scrapbook! So I pulled out my new Kreaxions Punch #309 (which looks like a tulip) and I started playing around. This is what I came up with! There’s a lot of fine detail work on this page – pen detailing, filling in negative spaces, using little pieces… But as you can see, it was well worth the effort! I had so much fun with my punch that I just HAVE to share with you here!
First I cut a 3½ “ circle from black and cut it in half. I also cut a 3¼ inch circle from Green and cut it in half but only used one half. Then I cut a 1” strip of both green and pink cardstocks, used Insert C and punched the four corner pieces. Once the pieces were punched, I cut them down to a 1×1 size. I also cut four 1×1 pieces of pink or green cardstock and four 1¼ x 1¼ piece of black as mats for each of the four corners. Then I used Template A to punch the pink cardstock and create the border on the left. I placed this strip over a piece of green cardstock and put a strip of black on the outside edge. To embellish the half circles, I used the negatives from the border and the corners. I also punched the photo corner pieces from pink cardstock. For the “O”s in the title, I used the negative pieces and punched the green center. I punched two separate pink pieces and after matting the green “O”s on the black mat, I carefully placed the pink pieces inside the green. I added a brad in the center of the base on the “O”s and on the corners of the photos and on the border piece, placed negative pieces around the half circles for added detail and pulled out my trusty fine point .05 Micron pen to do the pen detailing. Some pleated ribbon, a few flowers, some rhinestones and a bunch of Crystal Stickles totally took this page to the next level! I think maybe this page might need to be framed and put on my scrappy room wall! LOL!
