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.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
