HOW TO
First use a label cut piece of paper as a template; trace and cut out onto 'Bygone Plaid' paper by BasicGrey and ink the edges. Adhere onto the 'Peapod' paper, but be sure to leave the left outer edge free from adhesive. Cut a piece of the Memo Ledger sheet in half and place under the left side of the bracket edge.
Lightly trace around the placement of your photo. Cut various sizes of rectangular strips from the 'Dino' paper. Round the corners and ink the edges. Layer the strips along the outer edge of where the photo will lay. Use a long piece of ribbon to frame the photo.
Paint your Grungeboard using Making Memories Acrylics. Once dry, use an alternate color on the embossed parts. The arrows are flipped over, using the debossed area, which is filled in using a Souffle Pen from Sakura. Once all are dry, coat with a Glaze and ink the edges.
Choose one of the dinosaurs from the 'Dino' paper. Cut a same sized square and glue under the vellum tag. Add the Heidi Swapp star, outline the edges with a sharpie marker.
Cut out one of the larger dinosaur images and glue to the bottom of your journaling sheet.
Finish the layout with buttons sewn on with embroidery thread and the Daisy D's tape runner. I did the rubons really fast so they would have a distressed feel.
