C85 Shabby Rose Collection
12x12 scrap page ‘Bike ride’
By Ewelina Gryglak
For this layout you will need:
Romantic Panels paper C85 003
Romantic Door paper C85 004
Chipboard die-cut BIKE DC85 012
Stencil DS 049 C85 range
Other requirements: clear matte gesso, white gesso, texture paste and burlap net ribbon (to use as a stencil), amber, black and white acrylic inks, green and coral gouache paint, double-sided tape, glue
Your base page is Romantic Panels paper C85 003, using the floral side. To make sure the wet mediums don’t soak through the page, prime it with a layer of clear matte gesso (that will make it waterproof but will not fade out the original paper design).
To make the area around the photo faded so that the layers are easily visible and more effective, use a thin layer of white gesso. Let it dry (or use a dryer if you’re impatient like me).
Mix texture paste with light green gouache paint and add to the page through a burlap net ribbon – this will create first layer of texture and colour. Aim for it to be mainly in the area where you will attach your paper cluster and the photo but you can also add it randomly in corners or edges of the page.
Using green and coral gouache add colour on top of the stencil – spray it like a mist and let it run across the page.
Using the Stencil Stencil DS 049 C85 range and texture paste, add a bicycle stamps to the upper part of the area where your cluster will be. Leave to dry.
While the page with the wet mediums is drying, make your paper cluster. Cut Romantic Door paper C85 004 into strips and arrange into a frame for your photo. I distressed some of the edges – not all of them. Attach the cluster to the page.
Sprinkle black and white acrylic inks, and green and coral gouache paint all over and around the cluster. Leave to dry.
Paint the Chipboard die-cut BIKE DC85 012 using white gesso. Once dry, separate the frame from the design.
Attach the chipboard and the photo to the page.
