The book is "Lifted" by Michelle Miesenbach and is chock full of lovely pages to scraplift. Michelle and her team of designers have then taken various elements (colours, embellies, title, format, subject) from the example pages to produce new ones - you can see where the inspiration has been drawn, yet each finished page is totally new - my kind of scraplifting! Six chapters deal with each aspect of partial and full scraplifting and I particularly like the chapter on title-lifting as I'm a sucker for typography as well as wanting to
We all know that trends come and trends go ... and return again ... so before too long eyelets will be making a BIG comeback ... and when they do, I'll be ready, Silent Setter in hand!
I have made a page using a couple of ideas I lifted from the book: spacing a title out with dots between the letters (p93) and cutting up patterned papers into strips and putting them back together (p29).
The page design is from a sketch posted on UKScrappers' Weekly Challenge and the choice of papers is inspired by the "Ombre" challenge over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. I inked two of the strips to add to the range of colour graduation and used the counterfeited Flair Buttons that were in my January Counterfeit Kit.
You can't see it too well in the photos but I also added increasingly dense (over-) stitching on each row and inked the lower part of the pink photo mat more heavily than the top.
Do you like to scraplift? Are you interested in passing this book? Let me know and I'll make the draw next Monday (28th).
P.S. "Pass The Book" is international - happy to post world-wide!
