Hi Guys! I'm back again with a tutorial for a new layout I did of Let's Get Sketchy DT as well as Scrap around the World May's Challenge.
This is actually an anniversary layout that I was commissioned to do. Since it's to celebrate a lasting marriage, I decided to use more romantic and soft colours.
Following the sketch, I used 2 sheets of patterned papers (Blue Fern Studios and Bo Bunny) for my layout. I love how the pattern papers from 2 different brands manage to 'merge' together. I also distressed the edges of the paper with my Prima distress tool.
As usual, I love to test colours at the place I know my centrepiece will covered it, hence you see a blotch of purple spray from Tattered Angels over there. I also randomly stamped on Prima Clear Stamp from Cigar Box Secrets Collection and slowly build up the area I will worked on.
I used a mixed of texture stamps from Prima as well as Tattered Angels.
After stamping, I applied modelling paste over my Prima Lace stencil to give the layout some texture and dimension.
Here's the final look of the layout.
I used a mixture of embellishments apart from my usual 'all flowers' style. My flowers are mainly from Prima, whereas as the rest of the paper embellishments are mainly from Crate Paper and Dear Lizzy. I also used Tim Holtz Sizzix Flourish die to diecut the chipboard flourish at the side.
As you can see, the colours are significantly stronger. That's because after I'm done embellishing, I decided that my centrepiece didn't stood out well enough, hence I went back in with more of the purple spray. Using the spray as watercolour, I applied it around my centrepiece as a highlight.
I am pretty pleased with how this layout turns out. I love how sweet the colours are, as well as how the papers seems to blend in well together.
Here are some close-ups shots. :)
That's all for this post.
I have one more post later this week. Stay tuned! :)
