Hi there Scrapping Clearly fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing my take on the fantastic Mood Board challenge we have over on the Scrapping Clearly Community Facebook page. Here is the mood board...
...and here is the layout that I have created using this mood board as inspiration. I have a quick step-by-step tutorial showing how I created the background for this layout below.
Step 1: Scrape some Liquitex - Glass beads effects medium through a stencil using a palette knife over the top of some American Crafts 12x12 Double Thick White Cardstock and dry completely either naturally or using a heat tool.
Step 2: Mix some Colour Blast - Shimmer Dust - Duke & Candy with water and use it to paint some Heidi Swapp - September Skies - Color Magic - Die cuts words.
Step 3: When the Liquitex - Glass beads effects medium has completely dried, spray a deep puddle of water over the areas where you would like there to be colour on your background.
Step 4: Using the tip of a long thin palette knife, sprinkle tiny amounts of Colour Blast - Shimmer Dust - Duke all over the puddle of water that you have created on the background.
Step 5: If the powder is not dispersing enough, spray a little bit more water just over the top of dry areas. Let it dry completely either naturally or by using a heat tool but try to avoid moving the water around with the heat tool as you want the colours to be blotchy looking for a multi tone effect.
Step 6: When the Colour Blast - Shimmer Dust - Duke is completely dry, use your finger and gently rub some Viva Decor - Inka Gold - Silver over the texture on the background.
Step 7: Cut various rectangles and squares out of American Crafts - Shimelle - Starshine patterned papers - various to layer underneath the photograph.
Step 8: Finish off the layout with various items from American Crafts - Shimmelle Starshine - stickers, the painted Heidi Swapp - September Skies - Color Magic - Die cuts, and My Mind's Eye - On Trend 2 - Acrylic words. Adhere the clear stickers to white cardstock then fussy cut if you would like them to stand out better like I have here with the hot air balloon.
