Urban Girl by Karine


Today let me show you my “Urban Girl” layout starring the newest Jenni Bowlin Studio stamps! I tried to partially recreate a background playing with the different patterns!

Here are the stamps I selected: Time Book, Grocer's List, Dictionary, and Writing Book. I chose to use 4 different ink colours as well (Versafine Red Satin for the red, Spanish Moss for the green, Black & Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin for the navy blue). The patterns are stamped at the center of the white cardstock. Use the smooth side for a better print.

Then I added 2 little strips of red patterned paper "Red/Black collection "in the frame delineated by the stamps.

For a fancier note, it made sense to add a green circle. It also breaks the linear & severe note from the display I chose. A small picture with matching colours is glued astride the circle. Now let’s add the title which is made here with two different Jenni Bowlin alphabets.
I had fun adding accents on my lay-out such as half stickers, black feather rub-ons, stars and buttons. Last but not least, I added a badge (Icons-Flatbacks) for more volume.

As a finishing touch, I splashed a few drops of green ink as a reminder of the word “Girl” and of my circle.

I hope you liked my lay-out and that it will make you feel like using your stamps in a different manner from now on!

It’s your go now!

Pin It!
