A Day to Remember with Susie

Hello and Welcome!  Susie here today sharing a layout featuring papers from the brand new Antique Garden collection.

My girlfriend (and fellow DT member) Dana and I recently toured the Harley-Davidson factory in York, PA. I wanted to create something really grungy and industrial so I was a little surprised to find the perfect papers in a collection called Antique Garden!  One side of this paper is a beautiful yellow, gray and black floral...and the reverse reminds me of distressed concrete.  Perfect!


This vellum sentiment is from the Quick Quotes Inspire Bundle.  I backed it with a yellow patterned paper from the collection and built a collage of photos around it.

Quick Quotes has also released these new Rustic Patina Metal Embellishments. Love them! Nothing like a bit of metal to add an industrial feel, right?  I added  a black pearl to the center of each of the flowers.

I used washi tape to help create a title area and added a couple more self-adhesive black pearls.

I often tuck journaling tags behind pictures.  Usually I use plain manila tags, but this time I used coordinating paper from the new Alton collection.  I cut a strip of paper the same width and twice the length of a tag from my stash.

Fold the paper in half and glue the front and back together.  Use the tag as a pattern to clip the corners and punch the hole.  I used Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink along the edges:
To finish it off, I added black twine and a couple pieces of washi tape.
