Make Way for Ducklings

I must say that I fell absolutely in love with the flourish stamp from this month's Club Scrap Academy Kit and I immediately thought of some photos from the Boston Commons to use with it! You all know the story Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey? Well, in the Commons there are wonderful little statues of the ducks and children often pose with them! My mother snapped this shot of my girls there this Summer and it seemed perfect!

I used the stamp in a repeating pattern to make each of the three paper mats. I also used the Edified Felt from the Sr Kit for a fourth mat and the Tonic Border System with the Royal Punch (now available through Club Scrap and me!) to create the paper lace strip.

Ranger's Aqua Adirondack Paint Dabber was used to hand paint the flourishes under the title and to stamp the flourishes onto the brown cardstock. I inked the chipboard corner flourish with Ranger's Copper Adirondack Paint Dabber and made sure to pounce and get the paint to be dimensional and then I glazed over it with some Chianti Radiant Pearls that I wiped most of the way off. That gorgeous chipboard flourish, title chipboard letters, and the lovely transparency overlay are from Scrapbook Takeout.

I love the way you've used those amazing punches. I've tried to find them here in New Zealand (to no avail). Your layouts are gorgeous, love the very "metal" look they have, great work.
