Janine created this LO using a couple of sheets of patterned paper and a couple of sheets of Websters Vellum. The flowers were made by punching the vellum and then using a scorer to "scratch" lines into the vellum before gluing together the layers. The vellum adds a much more delicate touch to the flowers than using card-stock style paper. She also used the printed vellum floral elements beneath her photo block for a dreamy floral bouquet effect. To maintain the true colours of the vellum, she adhered it to white card-stock using Helmar 450 glue, which did not leave noticalbe glue lines underneath.
Kim has used vellum to create the base of a unique background for her layout. She has roughly stitched a grid over the vellum and then using a Crafter's Workshop template, added bold dots of paint over the vellum. Kim says she is going to use this technique again, but next time she will add confetti below the vellum as she stitches the grid design.
Sue Tonga used one of the fabulous glassing envelopes to contain journalling on this page.
Jenni O'Connor has shared these gorgeous and artistic pages that showcase the use of the Websters Vellum so beautifully. The softness of the vellum helps to add to the subtle effects of the background where a solid paper would have been far more dramatic, rather than this delicate beauty that is achieved here.
Christine Drumheller has used vellum to great effect in this layout by creating another wave layer to echo the stitched line - so subtle but just the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing your layout with us Christine.
Christa Uttley has used a delicate printed vellum to create the background for this simple but so effective card. Vellum can sometimes be tricky to attach. Christa has used machine stitching to attach her vellum and ensure that it does not shift. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us!
