Websters Pages Everday Poetry & Some Guest Designer Inspiration!

It's our pleasure as the Webster's Pages design team to do a project each month based on design inspiraton from our Guest Designer for the month.  This month our Guest designer is the fabulous Nic Howard!  I've been a longtime fan of her gorgeous work so it was an honor and a pleasure to create a page inspired by her work!  For my page above I used the horizontal linear design that Nic used on her page 'This is our year' and also picked up the use of corrugated cardboard and kitchen twine, as Nic used on her page. 
I used a variety of the Classic and the Clean & Simple papers from the Websters Pages Everyday Poetry Collection to make up this page.  I also added just a touch of my favourite chipboard to the page, Dusty Attic's Flourish #5 to the page.  The finish I gave it is one I often like to use, painting it white, lightly inking the edges with some brown chalk ink, stamping a scripted word design on it and then coating it all with a crackle finish (Tim Holtz's Rock Candy).... 
I also used just a little piece of the Wrought Iron Fence Border from Dusty Attic to add a fun design element to the Websters Pages door design.  This I just inked with some black chalk ink and added dabs of bronze 3D paint and some turquoise paint. (below) 
NOTE:  My friend Vicky just informed me that she has just this past weekend restocked her etsy shop with loads of the newest Dusty Attic goodies, so if you are looking for a good source to get your Dusty on you can find it HERE... 

To see more of Nic Howard's work, be sure to drop by the Websters Pages Ning site, and you can also see what the rest of the design team created using Nic's work as inspiration!
