'Caity' Layout - My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit October 2013 - Prima Delight Collection




Hello there!  Just sharing the close-ups & construction details of my 'My Creative Scrapbook' Kit Club Limited Edition Kit layouts for October 2013 {Full of the Prima Delight collection, among other lovely things!} Here's a look at the kit, which is available HERE.


The first layout I created is called 'Caity', after the girl in the
 photo.  My tutorial for the month is based on this layout & is
coming after I have shared my other MCS projects for the month.


I used gesso, mists & stamps on my background, 
as well as drywall tape & a Prima stencil.


The glimmer you see in the above photo on the top left is clear 
embossing powder sprinkled onto my gesso when it is wet.
  It adds a lovely random shine here & there :)


I layered my photo over strips of paper cut from the 
various different Prima Delight patterned papers.


I added an assortment of Prima flowers that I gave an artsy touch to by dabbing them randomly with gesso then stamping them just a teeny bit with my new Prima 'Everyday Vintage' honeycomb stamp.


A close-up of the textural detail in the top left of my layout, 
created with distressed & inked strips of patterned paper, 
drywall tape & thick gesso slathered on with an old credit
 card then misted whilst still wet.  Thanks for visiting!!
