Lord of the Rings Fanpage Mixed Media Layout


Today I am sharing something quite unusual for me, a scrapbook layout and fanpage for a favorite movie, The Lord of the Rings.  All inspired by our current challenge at Frilly & Funkie, With This Ring.  Our hostess Cec says, "It is wedding season so let's create vintage or shabby chic projects that celebrate the big day.  Your creation might be a card, a gift, a decor item or something to keep the memories of the special occasion."  I decided to take a twist and use a play on words by using the movie theme as my inspiration, all the while keeping with the romantic theme of our challenge.


I found the perfect photo of Arwen and Aragorn from the movie and printed it 8" long to work with my 12x12 layout.


I printed a quote from the movie onto woodgrain paper and cut into sections, distressing the edges.


I painted the edges of a 12x12 chipboard panel with Metallic Goldrush paint.  Next, I dipped a sheet of Tim Holtz Memoranda paper into watery Wild Honey Distress Ink.  I wet the entire page down and then crinkled it up.  I layered a second crinkled torn strip (with Elvish text?) across that.  I mounted my torn printed image onto more chipboard then over the papers.  I took care not to glue the very edges of my layers so that I could tuck in bits and bobs.  I tucked flat flowers from my stash and then layered with Wild Orchid Crafts Brown Cherry Blossoms.


I really wanted a sense of grandeur and light to compliment the photo and majesty of the movie, so I added Finnabair mica flakes and microbeads randomly, as if it were pouring out of the photo.  I adhered with matte gel medium.  I tucked in two Antiqued Bronze Filigree charms.  The ribbon is Silky Crush Wire Ribbon by May Arts, which I carefully removed the wire from, then cut in half and adhered in a crinkled manner along the bottom of my image.


My final touch was a filagree butterfly charm and stained crocheted Vinice lace, which I colored with Frayed Burlap DI and tucked beneath the photo, and a bit of string winding down in opposite corners.   What fun this was to make!  I hope you are inspired and will play along with our With This Ring challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Love, LOVE, LLLLLLOOOOOVVVEEEE your mixed media layout with all those fabulous details, like the altered ribbon and lace, the microbeads and flakes. Isn't is such great fun just to create without a plan, letting your work/play take a life of it's own as it comes together? Sorry, I got carried away! I had one such play time yesterday, and I'm still glowing! Ha! Ha! WELL DONE, you! You have taken Cec's theme and RAN with it! Hugs!

Anyway, love all of your details, down to using the paper with the swirly Elvish-esque writing. Your warm colors totally evoke a romantic glow!

  15. Well I just typed a comment and it totally disappeared.. I will retype, hoping I don't give you a duplicate comment. This layout is truly unique and perfect for a LOTR fan bride. I tried to pick my favorite detail to comment on, but there are too many. I have to say, I chuckled when you said you did not glue the edges of your crumpled paper down so you could tuck in Bits and Bobs. LOL. Leave it to a crafter to find a place to embellish.
