For this month's "In Honor Of' theme, I am honouring my Grandparents with this Scrapbook Layout.
This is my Nana and Pa's Wedding photo - it is my favorite photo of them and it just beautiful.
Both of them have now passed away but their memory is living on through our family.
To create this page, I used a stencil that is coming out soon designed by Pam Carriker! and incorporated a few different techniques. I have created a short video if you want to see the process.
Here are a few simple steps ...
I started by using Dress Pattern and book paper to collage a base. Once dry, I used Distress Inks and Oxides plus Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays to add colour.
On a separate panel of cardstock, I used dress pattern again and used the stencil with heavy gesso to create a strip of interest across the middle. I then used a couple of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays to add colour and dimension.
I love how the gesso creates a resist with the spray.
I applied gel medium through a sponge and then added gilding flakes before brushing them off when dry - leaving an awesome finish.
I love the final finish of this page ... the layers of stenciling with gesso, sprays, inks and gilding flakes work so well together and all create a look that matches the photo really well.
Today I am sharing a page using the colors from the July Color Challenge! Such a sweet selection of colors and super easy to use as well!
Recently our daughter Jessica went on a school camp and took some fun photos with her friends! These are just perfect to scrapbook and document and I wanted to use some of the gorgeous stamps I purchased last week!
There are a few simple steps to create this page.
I started by adding a small amount of each of the colors to a palette.
I then used black Archival Ink to stamp onto Marshamallow cardstock – I used some cool stamps by aall&create.
I started by using a wash of Shabby Turbine Teal and then added some Bachelor Button Blue.
I love the way these two colors work together!
I then added some Bling-y Blonde to the circles and Pretty in Pink Pink and added Prima Donna Purple to the stars.
A few simple splatters of each of the colors adds a little more interest and dimension before adding the photo
I colored each of the stars, added some old Making Memories alpha rub-ons that I have been hoarding for years then added a title and I’m all done!
I am thrilled to be heading over to New Zealand next month to teach at SENZ!
