Elgar's Birthplace

Our layout today is from Giselle and she scraps about a trip to the birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar, an English Romantic composer. The muted colors of her page really help the colors from her photos to pop. Notice her title work too. She used her own handwriting to emulate the handwriting of Sir Elgar.

"Elgar's Birthplace"
by Giselle Homer

Cardstock: Bazzill 12" x12"
12x 12 circular sticker: Creative Imaginations Narratives
Transparency: My Mind's Eye, Bohemia 'At the Beach' Frame
Monogram: Creative Imaginations Narratives
Embellishment: Creative Imaginations Narratives Notepaper
Glaze: Glossy Accents
Stamp: Collage Press Journaling circles
Ink: StazOn
Journaling: Handwritten

Carefully place the large circular sticker over a piece of Bazzill cardstock (NB: The sticker's overall size is smaller than 12x12, so trim the cardstock to fit).
Arrange the four photographs so that those on the outside edges fit slightly under the inner rim of the circle.
Trim the transparency frame to size and glue in place with small dabs of Glossy Accents, ensuring that it doesn't show through.
Cut the embellishment from the CI Narratives Notepaper & add Glossy Accents glaze, leave to dry completely.
Add the monogram to the centre of the embellishment & then glue it below the middle photograph.
The title was hand drawn to copy Edward Elgar's signature but could just have easily been made with rub-ons or other letters.
Stamp the journaling circle below the title and hand write the journaling.
