Hi everyone... Jess here to show you a little taste of Journey by Authentique!
Authentique is a new company that debuted at this past summer CHA show with beautiful textured papers and coordinating embellishments ranging from tiny word stickers to large title blocks. You're just going to love the colors!
Here's a peek at Journey, which is primarily blue with shades of gray, white, and brown. I couldn't have asked for better papers to coordinate with this photo of my son in his fleece jammies:
Lisa gave me a little challenge this month and asked me to play with some Tim Holtz grunge paper. You see that little embellishment pocket to the right of my photo? Yep, that's grunge paper! It is really soft and flexible and almost feels like leather but it takes stains and mists beautifully. Check out my tutorial video to find out how I created this pocket.
I actually used the pocket to hide my journaling on a little tabbed card.
The rest of my page is embellished with details that coordinated with the Journey line: brown stitching, some Pink Paislee brads, and LOTS of Authentique die cuts!
You can see that I really layered a lot of the little die cuts in several places on this page. As a grouped cluster they have a bigger impact than they would alone. I used foam tape to elevate some and pop them even more.
Join me a little later this month when I will feature another line from Authentique!
