The Multi-Mat and Get-It-Straight Laser Square allow for perfectly stamped text on your layouts, no more worrying about fixing mistakes with embellishments or even throwing layouts away.
What makes me happy is that I can stay with my style even though it's a little distressed, mixed media and shabby.
Here's a few of the supplies I used to create this layout.
Jimbo Lojik Stamps
Get-It-Straight Laser Square
Black Stazon Ink and Cleaner
Chalk Ink for inking distressed edges - brown
Patterned Paper of Choice
Embellishments of choice
Coordinating sprays or mists
Cut 2 mats and 3 strips from patterned paper. Distress the edges and ink with chalk ink of choice.
Outline the area where the mats are going to be adhered.
Line the 3 strips up on background sheet using the Multi-Mat and the Get-It-Straight Laser Square.
Distress the edges of the 2 mats you cut earlier, ink the edges and adhere your photo. Adhere these to your background sheet using the Multi-Mat and Get-It-Straight Laser Square.
Using the Get-It-Straight Laser Square and Jimbo Lojik Stamps, Stamp your journaling onto a journaling card or paper of choice. (I die cut 2 from different sized dies and colors)
I added a banner to the layout also from the patterned paper scraps.
