〜My Little Angel〜 the layout of "Tanabata"

 

IMG_7876

Hi, Madoka here.

I'd like to share the way of making orginal paper using the products of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

This is the layout of  "Tanabata".

"Tanabata" is a Japanese Star Festival that celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi.

According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on  July 7th  on the Milky Way.  

In Japan people generally celebrate this day by writing the wishes on "Tanzaku" which is small pieces of paper and hanging them on bamboo trees with other decorations.

The bamboo trees with decorations are colorful and very beautiful.

And this event is full of many hopes and dreams.

So I tried to express that dreamy atmosphere.

My World

DSC_0012

Hello everyone.  Terri here.  Today I want to share with you a layout I completed using several different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products.  So, let's get started!  First, here's a look at what I have created.

I love creating my own backgrounds for layouts.  I think my pictures deserve mini works of art to showcase them! (This is my oldest son in Spain last summer)

I began with a 12 x 12 sheet of kraft cardstock.  To create some layers I first stamped with a world map stamp randomly on the background using a Dark Indigo Stamper’s Big Brush Pen.  These are a staple in my craft bag.  I rarely use inks to stamp anymore because these pens are permanent india ink.  They come is so many colors and are very versatile.  Just color directly onto your stamp and viola!  Perfection!
