TUTORIAL:  C130 Reckless Beauty Collage BY Lorraine Haddath

This collage could easily be turned into a scrapbook page by replacing some of the collage blocks with photos.

Supplies required:

1 x Wooden Canvas – I bought mine from “Unique Wooden Creations” and is slightly smaller than 12” x 12” so I cut the background page to fit inside.

Piece of cardboard to fit inside the box under the collage to raise slightly.

White / cream acrylic or chalk paint

FabScraps C130 papers as follows

1 x C130 001 – reverse side for the background

2 x pearled cream card stock

Other papers in the collection for the mats

Sentiment cards from C130 011

Fussy cut images from C130 009 & 010

Metal letters rubbed with copper metallic wax

FabScraps small flat backed copper-coloured pearls

Double sided tape & glue

Cardboard or chipboard off cuts to raise mats and images

Instructions:

  1. Paint the outside and inner edges of the box

    1. 4 x 2 ½ “ x 2 ½ “
    2. 4 x 5 ½ “ x 2 ½ “

    2. 4 x 5 ¼ “ x 2 ¼ “
    3. 1 x 5 ¼ “ x 5 ¼ “
  5. Die cut the center sentiment if desired.
 
  1. Arrange and adhere the cream mats on the background evenly in a pleasing manner as above
  2. Ink and/or distress edges of patterned papers and glue to cream mats as above
