Happy Sunday Scrappingclearly followers.........
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and of course found some time too get creative.
Over the past few weeks I have been loading some fabulous new papers from the Paper Arts range they are all just gorgeous and make for a quick and easy layout with gorgeous backgrounds and colours and the great news is I have lots more too load in the coming days.
Todays layout showcases the Artistry 3 paper.....
Now because the the paper is just so gorgeous I actually have not felt the need to add any extra layers using ink or paint or an type of medium which I would normally do.
Instead I started off by painting with acrylic paint random lengths of decorative paper tape, plumbers tape could also be used. Once dry I adhered the strips the middle section of the 12" layout this is were the main focal point of the layout is. I also stamped a decorative border with black ink to fill in the spaces and to create a border and more element.
I have adhered my chosen photo to black cardstock to create a border.
Those who have crafted with me know that I am addicted to Hambly Transparencies I just love that they are so easy to use, they give an awesome effect to your layout with cool patterns and colours and the transparency looks unreal. I used the Hambly feathers in black, I fussy cut 3 different feathers to place randomly underneath my photo.
Using surgical gauze I have sprayed with Bubblegum pink Dylusions Spray set aside to dry. This will give more dimension and add another element to the layout.
Using white cardstock I have stamped a heart for an extra embelishment and I have used a Heidi Swapp Chipboard heart embellishment .
To finish the layout I have used gold glitter and black foam thicker to create a title
"LOVE AND BE HAPPY"
Last but not least I have journal my layout using a black Fude Ball pen.
I do hope you have enjoyed my layout today and I hope you take a look at the gorgeous range of PAPER ARTS PAPERS now available online here @ scrappingclearly
