Rachel- My Mind's Eye

The Summit
by Rachel Burgess
Bazzill cream cardstock 12x12
MME Penny Lane Tiny Dancer ‘ballet’ Dancing circles paper
MME Penny lane Tiny Dancer ‘jazz’ moving dots paper
MME Penny Lane Feeling Groovy ‘uniquely you’ special swirls paper
Ranger Inkessentials white pen
Turquoise blue pen
Turquoise blue and brown inkpads
Ranger Stickles crystal glitter glue
Tear a large corner piece off the dancing circles paper to form a mountain and attach to the bottom left corner of the base cardstock.
Draw around a dinner plate to give a large circle of moving dots paper and tear an aperture in the centre. Ink both the inner and outer edges with the blue ink and place over the top left corner at the ‘summit’ of the paper mountain. Trim away the excess that hangs over the edge of the layout. Mark a faint pencil line around the inner edge of the circular aperture on your layout.
Remove the aperture and draw a double freehand blue pen border on the cream cardstock but not over the mountain. Collage some photographs together to fit within this blue border and the marked aperture edge.

Mount your second photograph in the die cut scalloped frame and doodle on the frame with the white pen.
Tear the edge from the happy girl die cut. Ink the torn edge and tear a larger disc from the leftover piece that you tore from the centre of the 12x12 die cut. Ink the edge of this also and layer the two discs together using sticky foam pads.
Draw a jagged upward diagonal line in the torn space in the centre of the 12x12 die cut on your layout several times using a fine tipped green pan and then layer the 2 photograph pieced and the layered torn disks in the bottom left hand corner of the layout.
Hand cut your title from the special swirls paper and mount at the top of you layout using sticky foam pads randomly to give dimension to some of the letters.

Hand cut a title, tiny train and three carriages from the special swirls paper. Ink the edges of the train pieces with brown ink and attach as if going up the mountain and onto the aperture piece.
Arrange the title around the aperture piece and highlight with the white pen where necessary to help it stand out.
Add journaling around the edge of the layout with the blue pen and also a dotted line and arrow leading up the mountain.
