TIP: I found using a new blade did the trick in cutting the black perfectly so if you have struggled like me, perhaps you need a blade or a “special” blade for black?! While I was cutting black I also cut the fun Constellation file a few times, filling my page with different sized stars and re-sizing them to fit around and fill the whole page.
The colours I used (in ROYGBIV except IV order and add in pink lol)
Picked Raspberry|Candied Apple|Spiced Marmalade|Squeezed Lemonade|Cracked Pistachio|Peacock Feathers|Mermaid Lagoon
Until next time, happy scrapping
I finished off with one of the Heidi Swapp puffy stickers from this pack and a few word strips from my box of goodies.
I also created a process video which you can see below.
I started by tearing 3 pieces of patterned paper from the Collection Pack (Seeing Stars, My Boy and Smash Bang) and layered them on the right hand side of my white background paper and then added a coat of white gesso both over the bottom of the papers (where my photo’s were going) and onto the white cardstock.
And then more colour!! Back, again, to my Distress Oxides! I was going to use LOTS of colours but then ended up using only Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade and the packaging technique over where the gesso and stamping was.
I used my Minc and some Gunmetal foil to create my title. I’ve used one one of the pieces from the Paper Phrases by Heidi Swapp – The Good Life – this photo is the perfect representation of my biggest boy totally in his element at a friends place helping to look after their horses.
I have used some plain vellum to back my photo tearing the edges and layering it a little.
I decided I didn’t need too much embellishing so went with some Heidi Swapp wood veneer which I made black using the same black ink from earlier and a couple of the grey rubber charms from the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studios.
When all my layers were stuck I wanted to lift the page so watered down a little white gesso and sprinkled away.
I added my journalling & date with my Fude Ball pen and my page was done!
Another little story told and in his album and I just love that fun back ground paper and loved the challenge I gave myself to use it!
Until next time, happy scrapping!!
