Hi everyone! This weekend I got a couple more
layouts done, including this one, for the Prima BAP.
LOVE the sketch from Jen - great job!
My background paper comes from this year's Seashore Collection,
with my paper layers & printed chipboard from the Time Traveler Collection.
I used Prima stitch stamps from last year,
together with my new Prima Color Burst sprays.
One of my favourite techniques is splattering & I love
the look of several different colours together. I use a
fan brush but a narrow wooden skewer works great too.
I began with some gesso - dried it off - added my background splatters then did
some doodling with a black Faber Castell Pit pen, added some dry-wall tape
& some thread then added my pre-made photo stack consisting of patterned
papers & printed chipboard. I always compile my photo stack before adhering it
(in other words I work from the photo DOWN until I have all my layers
then I use foam tape to adhere the stack, to give it a slight dimension).
It's always good not to over-cover the page so that there is an area remaining
for journaling, that is not full of mediums - which aren't easy to write on top of.
I use a dropper to get a concentrated colour around the edge of my photo stack,
using a sheet of card over the top of my photo stack to prevent it from getting stained.
Another trick for stacking is to use glue in the middle of your layers, leaving
at least an inch around the edge so that you are able to tuck in bits & pieces.
I use my fingernail along the edge of the papers to curl up the edges, which keeps
things nice & loose & casual looking. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
