August Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial with Photoplay Year with My Gnomies
Hello, Friends! It’s hard to believe, I know, but it’s time to share our August Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial. This year long series has been a ray of sunshine every month of 2022, hasn’t it? Break out your flip flops, sunglasses and tanning lotion because we are having fun in the sun in August!
The Shaker Box
This sun-drenched folio is filled with citrusy hues and summer fun. How about the sea turtle “rainbow” at the top of this super fun shaker frame? And what about all those juicy citrus fruits in the shaker? See? I told you this month’s folio was all about fun! Here’s how I altered the Reneabouquets Beautiful Box Ornament Frame for this cover;
- First, tap the frame with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink.
- Now, mist the frame lightly with water. This will activate the Oxide Ink,
- Next, tap the frame with clear embossing powder and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
- Now, spatter Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed and Picket Fence Distress Paint over the surface of the frame. Let the paint spatters dry.
- Now, back the frame with clear acetate and 3 rows of foam tape.
- Next, die cut the circle of flip flops from the paper collection to serve as the back of the frame. Cut a slightly larger circle to make sure that the foam edges are completely covered.
- Now, fill the shaker box with Fruit Cocktail Sprinkletz and Christmas Carnival Sparkletz. (First, remove the Christmas trees)
- Finally, seal the back of the shaker box with the prepared die cut circle.
