C88 Floral Dreams Collection
– 12x12 scrap page
‘Find joy in everything’
by Ewelina Gryglak
For this layout you will need:
Fluttershine paper C88 001
Merry Weather paper C88 005
Chipboard die-cut FIND JOY IN EVERYTHING DC88 004
Stencil DS 055 C88 range
Other requirements: clear matte gesso, white gesso, texture paste, teal, pink and white acrylic inks, colour co-ordinating flowers, double-sided tape, glue
Your base page is Merry Weather paper C88 005, using the dotted side.
Tear off approx. half of the Fluttershine paper C88 001 and glue it to the base the flowery side up.
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).
Using the Stencil DS 055 C85 range and texture paste, make a stamp – this is a frame for the area where the paper cluster will be attached.
Tear the remaining Fluttershine paper C88 001into strips and arrange them into an paper cluster – use both sides of the paper to add colour to the page. Attach it to the page using double-sided tape.
Mix small amounts of texture paste with pink and teal gesso – use the Stencil DS 055 C85 range to create another frame over the paper cluster. I made half of the frame pink and half teal to match the colour of the page.
While the ‘stamp’ is drying, use pink, teal and white inks to add colour and texture around the stencilled frame. It doesn’t matter that the texture paste is still wet, you can dry them together, once you have finished with sprinkling on your inks. Leave to dry.
While the page with the wet mediums is drying, paint the Chipboard die-cut FIND JOY IN EVERYTHING DC88 004 with white ink. Set to the side to dry.
Using double-sided foam tape, attach the photo to the paper cluster. Then add the Enjoy Your Journey Chipboard DC87 004 and the flowers.
