Hot off the Press....Younique embellishments for layouts

Hey all, Its Kim . Im here to share some fun ways to use scrapbook papers to create unique embellishments for your scrapbook page.

I started building my layout with lots of layers from the Antiquities line by Donna Salazar for GCD studios
I lightly spritzed the background with Smooch Spritz in Woodstain. I didn't want to add too much extra color but just lightly gave it some rich color and texture.
After grunging it up by inking it and distressing it I wanted to add some fun embellishments to this page.
I created a quirky title by laying the letter chipboards down to match the wording of 'a crooked' smile


This created some visual interest and gave the layout a whimsical feel which matches the theme .

 Next, make sure you check  out Donna Salazars Crafty Chronicle.  Not only is this fun newspaper chock full of silly articles, clever quotes and crafty goodness, it was also perfect for cutting up and using as paper accents on my scrapbook page!

I closely cut around the car, as seen here and I layered it on a few of my patterned paper pieces. Inked edges give it dimension .

To create more accents as embellishments , I added some other hand cut elements from the Crafty Chronicle  including the bee and the word "younique" which I used as part of my title
I added some Fairy Dust Glitter in Pralines in Cream to the bees wings adding another dimension of unity to the design of the embellishments.
A tag full of textured "junque" accents ties the entire layout together!

So get to your nearest newstand... I mean.. Scrapbook Store and ask for Donna Salazars Crafty Chronicle now... and begin to create your own "younique" embellishments today!
