Laura Rumble – Minc-ed Acorns

Hello Pretty My Page fans!  Laura here today.

I have a process video for you today using Acorn Mesh cut file and my foiling machine.

I’m slightly unsure of this layout, I don’t love it, but I think I’ve worked out why… I struggle with kraft and I struggle with ‘whole page’ coverage.  There is nothing wrong with the layout at all but now I know which bits I don’t love I can work on making a version that I do love!acorn1 - Laura Rumble - Minc-ed Acorns

I’ve used Minc reactive mist and a paintbrush to paint through the cut file, then removed the cut file and extended the painted area a little.  The key is a thick coat of mist… as I found out after my first attempt.  I did this in stages – painting, drying, foiling until all the leaves and acorns were coloured.

The rest was simple layering of scraps and tags from the PMP layering pack.

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
