Cream Layout

I've got a layout to share with you today that I challenged myself to go monochromatic.  I really had fun with thisusing texture to add interest. Scrap-Mart carries so many great lines, it's really easy to put together mixed media type projects.  Did you know that Scrap-Mart offers a 40% off coupon every month, that you can use on one item (off the MSRP).  The code for November is "STUFFING".  So, I'm sure if you head over to the store, you will see all kinds of wonderful goodies that you might want to use the discount on or maybe get an early start to your Christmas shopping!

1.        Roughen the edges of the base page using a distressing tool, then ink the edges with brown ink.  Cut an 11” square sheet of patterned paper, attach to the base and paint with gesso.   Allow to dry.

2.       Randomly stamp the Vintage Word Background using water mark ink, and emboss using Pepper colored powder. Glue a piece of lace down the left side of the page.  Dry emboss a panel of white cardstock and add over the lace. Add another light coat of gesso over this, and rub the gesso away from the embossed areas of text.  Stamp a few flower swirls from the Tattered Blossom Swirls. Layer a piece of embroidered organza or other sheer fabric, under the area where the photograph will go (extending beyond the space for the photo).

3.       Randomly spritz the entire page with the Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  Paint the chipboard pieces with Gesso, allow to dry, and ink the edges using the brown ink.  Apply to the page.

4.       Using the cream and black patterned paper from the paper pad, stamp and cut multiple flowers in all sizes from the Tattered Blossoms.  Shape the flowers, arrange them in stacks, but don’t glue them together yet.

5.       Heat Clear Ultra High embossing powder in a Melting Pot.  Using tweezers, dip each of the flowers into the molten powder – starting with the bottom flower of the stack.  Remove a flower, set it on a heat resistant pad, and do the same thing with the next flower in the group.  Take the second flower and place in the center of the first.  The embossing powder will “glue” the flowers together.  Continue doing this for each layer of the flower. Make 3 large flowers in the manner.  Use single layers of smaller flowers for fillers.

6.       Take the completed flower and slightly heat with a heat gun, and while it is hot, mist it with Tattered Angels Chalk mist.  Attach the flowers to the layout.  Add a pearl to the flower center.
