My final ScrapFriends tutorial was published recently, so I thought I'd go ahead and share it here too...
I tend to keep all my paper scraps..even the tiny ones because they are just perfect for adding texture and layers to pages.. here are most of the items I've used, many of which are available in the ScrapFriends shop..
to start off roughly work out the design by layering the scraps together..if needed you can cut them to size. I've cut some v's out of a few to sit below the photo and also hand-cut some cameras and feathers..
the next step is to add some gesso with a palette knife and spray around the edges with a white mist, adding a few splatters as well..
then stick down the layers, 'teasing' up the corners a bit here and there..
add some embellishments and hand cut pieces..
I've also added some washi into the layers.. first I cut the washi in half lengthways and added it under the layers for a more subtle look..
and finish with some ink splatters and stamping, title and journaling
there's another fabulously fun challenge up at Kraft it Up this month.. and the theme is vintage! Of course you can interpret vintage however you like and I guess my layout could be described as 'modern vintage'.. Modern in the use of colour and technique but still incorporating vintage elements including quite a few items that I've had in my stash for many years!
just love the JBS tag, and vintage label..and the gorgeous little pearl flowers came from D-Lish Scraps.. For the background I've used pieces of vintage dress pattern and gesso..
I've also used a JBS stencil and SODAlicious stamps with white ink to add a few highlights..and added a wood veneer heart which I stained with distress ink..
I hope you can join in the challenge.. and check out more inspiration from the DT which will be up on the blog tomorrow.. Gx
