Great Wall of Dimension!

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

Today I'm pulling out a fun 8.5x11 that's been an old favorite of mine. I haven't visited it in awhile, so it was clearly overdue. The Asian Artisan 8.5x11 Cream Print was perfect for this little project I had in mind, and adding a bit of the Asian Artisan 8.5x11 Blue Print for matting my 5x7 photo was the perfect touch.

My idea was to add dimension to the scrapbook page by cutting out the bird, branch and leaves print and re-attaching with foam squares. So I grabbed three of this fun print and started cutting.

I cut the bird, leaves and red block from one 8.5x11 sheet and the branch from another. Then I used the top portion of the cut prints for matting 'n such (Disclaimer: Absolutely no Club Scrap paper was wasted, discarded or harmed during the making of this project).

Then, to cover my very non-perfect cutting skills, I used black ink and a foam tip applicator to add ink
to the cut edges. They look so much better now!

I added foam squares onto the backs of all the pieces and attached onto an uncut print.
I started with the branch and then moved on to the bird, then the leaves.

Lastly, I added the red block as a finishing touch.

I just love what this print adds to this scrapbook layout!

Thanks for visiting Club Scrap's Asian Artisan collection with me. (Oh, and if you get a chance, check out Tricia's nifty blog about the birdie stencil!)

Wishing you a very creative day!
