C92 WOODLANDS FRIENDS COLLECTION
12x12 scrap page ‘Cuteness’
by EWELINA GRYGLAK
For this layout you will need:
Starlight paper C92 004
Chipboard die-cut CUTENESS DC92 006
Stencil DS 063 C92 range
Carder’s Pack MC92 001A
Other requirements: clear matte gesso, texture paste, colour co-ordinating gouache paint (green and orange), white acrylic ink, various leaf design and ‘family’ stamps + black archival ink, circle paper punch, mulberry leaves, 3d foam tape, glue
Paint the Chipboard die-cut CUTENESS DC92 006 white using the acrylic ink; once dry, watercolour it green using gouache paint.
Your base page is Starlight paper C92 004, the tree silhuettes 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).
Mix texture paste with micro-balls to add dimension. Run the mix through the Stencil DS 063 C92 range – the tree design only – place it closer to one side of the page.
While the ‘stamp’ is drying, sprinkle the watered-down green and orange gouache paints onto the design so that it soaks the colour in and created the impression of various tones and shades. Green paint on the leaves, orange on the trunk.
Pick one of the sheets from the Carder’s Pack MC92 001A and cut it into strips of various size. With black pen, draw frames on all of them (you can do it on either side of the paper as you will use them both when building the paper cluster). Punch circles in some of the strips.
Once ready, assemble the strips into a paper cluster.
Once the stencilled design and paint are dry, stamp the leafy design around the area where the paper cluster will be attached. Stamp the ‘family’ around the whole design.
Attach the paper cluster to the page using 3d foam tape. Sprinkle more green and orange paint over the paper cluster. Using 3d foam tape, attach the photo on top.
Using double-sided tape attach the earlier prepared chipboard CUTENESS.
Glue in mulberry leaves under opposite corners of the paper cluster.
