The Scrapping Joy of Newspaper Cutting

After waiting for the Archival Mist from EK Success to arrive, I finally can start assembling the layout of the newspaper cutting. With scrapping newspaper cutting what really important is I need to make it acid free so that it could be preserved and won’t turn yellow with the aging process.


The ribbon sample from Ribbon Boutique arrived together with the long awaited Tsukineko pigment ink – Brilliance Dew Drop in pearlescent Rust. In fact even the guy at the postal service has recognized me for collecting overseas parcel almost every week now..huhu! That particular day, I collected 5 parcels all sent by all the eBay sellers..heh! I was hoping that I have gold tone but rust would do for now. I matted the newspaper clippings and inked the edge of the mat papers with the Rust ink.


The thing is with the clip frame from IKEA, I need to have at least 3 pieces of patterned papers. And I only have two at most in my collection. So after a quick spree in Papier, The Curve last weekend, these Perhaps orangey tone from Basic Grey would go nicely with the Queen & Co orange felt fusion border.

Personally I prefer something more embellished than this layout style, but since I can’t make it budge under the glass top of the frame, I decided to save my ideas for some other pages later.

Now the frame is finely displayed on my art shelf. Maybe I should nail it to the wall because every time it’s getting very windy I get so scared that it will fall off from the shelf.
