July’s Scrappin’ With Robots

Hi everyone! Maggi here to show off another project from this month’s guest designer, July! She made this scrapbook layout using our new kit, Monstrous Mutant Robots from Outer Space:

Part of my interest in scrapbooking is taking pictures that aren’t your average pictures, like July’s close ups of the robot:

She collaged tissue onto the patterned paper from the kit and painted another of the paper in pink to use as a mat for photos. She then tore the painted paper into a smaller size and adhered her photos.

She layered the borders, stenciled with red paint and sewed around after painting the border blue. July also embellished using styrofoam robots, 3 plastic robots, cut outs from the kit.

I love how she used the cloud/speech bubble. Great way to journal without “journalling”. lol

Join us next week for July’s third and final project! Until then…

Go glue something awesome onto some awesome something!

Maggi 😀
