Thank You Canadian Scrapbooker

     For publishing my Layout in the Fall 2015 issue. Page '59' YEAH!!
 Here is the tutorial on how I did the shaped journal.
I was torn between songs but chose "Romeo and Juliet' by Mark Knofpler
over the  "Pina Colada" by Ruper Holmes
 
I used bits of fabric scraps and a broken shell necklace. The tiny bottle is decorated with antique dictionary paper
The things you can do with Score-Pal Adhesive Tape I wanted to add a feeling of movement to this piece. To do that I first printed the lyrics to a favorite song. Note: I always center the lyrics so it looks like a poem. Then ink the edges to match your  paper choice
Now, carefully cut under each line of the song leaving a small border along the entire left and right  sides, running vertical to your piece.
Then flip it over, using the smallest Score tape
alternate covering every other line until it is
completely covered with tape as shown below.
Then take a 1/2' tape and do the vertical edges making sure you do not have a lot of white space under the tape when you  flip it back to the front
Working in about a 6 to ten line piece
cut one grouping off. Remove only the
long lines of tape - your piece will be held
together by the edge tapes. Carefully position where you would like it to be smooth down the taped lines. Now carefully cut the side pieces, remove the tape backing and push in towards center, pop it slightly. Work down one side at  a time It is quite easy once you get on to it.
Note: I used a piece of rigid mesh to keep the shaped journal popped.

Wow, Pam. This is amazing. I can see why they would want to publish this gorgeous scrapbook page. It is simply stunning.

I've heard of that tape, but didn't know it was so versatile. You did an excellent job, as you do with everything you make.
