Its all about Clusters this month on the ScrapLounge

Embellishment Clusters is the focus this month over at the ScrapLounge for our Technique Challenge.  You will find a great tutorial showing the basics of creating a cluster as well as some great examples from the Creative Team over on the forum, under the heading Monthly Technique Challenge.

Here is my example using an embellishment cluster.  Once again I am scrapping an old photo of my mother.  This one I am told was her on her eighteen birthday.......and is the second of my favorite photos of her.


I have used a variety of items to create my cluster, which include Chipboard Flowers that I have coloured with Ink.  Paper Flowers, Silk Roses, Skeleton Leaves, Victorian Crochet Trim, A strand of Pearl Beading, along with brads and bling bits for the centre of the flowers and a wooden heart button which I covered with Patterned Paper.

Also for this layout I have used my Very Vintage Stampin' Wheel across the background of my paper with Soft Suede Ink and punched each of the corners using a fancy corner punch.  I have used my Scallop Border Punch across the top of my Photo Matt, and the Sentiment ' Remember When' is from Just Rite Stamps.
