JustRite: May 2013 Release - Day 5

Before I forget, I wanted to let you know about JustRite® Papercraft Spring Fling Sale! going on NOW until this Sunday (May 12). That includes any floral themed sets in the new May 2013 Releases! WOOHOO~!

OK...on to Day Five of JustRite Papercraft's May 2013 Release, we are introducing Samantha Walker Designs of All Boy and Pattern Basics sets!

I used a little of both sets to create a fun CAS (Clean And Simple) scrapbook page. This little boy is now a high school senior....don't think he'll be thrilled to see this out in "public!" LOL!! BIG DIFFERENCE from yesterday's layout! Heehee~!

I wanted to share how I colored the tag with my newly acquired Faber-Castell Gelatos Color Gift Set! Cover tag with Gesso and dry. Draw circles in different colors and sizes. Lightly mist the tag with water and blot with paper towel to make the pattern lighter...this took about three-four times, dry time in between. Using the Pattern Basics stars stamp, create the background as shown.

The other embellishment I wanted to cover was the Play Time star title...the top image I nested all the dies in the Stars Five set and cut/emboss. I used two different colors so you can see it better. To create the layered star, you just need to shift your second die cut (green) and it will look like the blue/green die cut. The bottom image is how I created my title in one color :)

Hope that some of you will use these techniques to create your own FABULOUS projects! Here's another look at the layout...
