Hi there Scrapping Clearly fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing my take on the January Sketch Challenge. You can view the details over on the Scrappingclearly facebook group which is where all entries must be loaded as well.
Here is the sketch designed by the fabulous Peg Hewitt!
And here is my take on the sketch using lots of goodies available from the Scrapping Clearly store.
Here is a quick step-by-step on how to create this background effect...
Step 1: Place a stencil over some American Crafts 12x12 Double Thick White Cardstock.
Step 2: Scrape a few blobs of both Colour Blast - Colour Paste - Snow White and Colour Blast - Colour Paste - Bling randomly over the stencil.
Step 3: Carefully and quickly, smear the colour paste around then remove the stencil and clean. Do not act slowly or pedantically because you will simply mix the colours together. Acting quickly and roughly creates a more authentic looking marbled effect.
Step 4: Cut random pieces of My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Patterned Paper to mount underneath the photographs. Avoid cutting any pieces that are larger than the photographs combined to keep the layers neat. I have also included some My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Journal Cards in the layers and I have used some fringe scissors on a piece for the bottom of the page.
Step 5: Finish off the layout by using various pieces from My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Acrylic Words, My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Cardstock Stickers Alphabet & Word, and My Minds Eye - On Trend 2 Collection - Cardstock Stickers.
Products used for this layout include:
