I got you by Tracey B

Hi everyone,

here's another couple of layouts inspired by this month's board, similar colours but using different techniques and products.

This LO was inspired by a class I did with Louise Nelson, quite a few years ago now.   
I started with a layer of gesso, scraped from the top down with a credit card.   I deliberately let it rough and ready so later on the inks would flow in some places and grip in others.

I then scrapped on some crackle paste and when dry, sprayed on the ink and let it run down the page.  
I used a baby wipe to smear some of the overspray to the bottom of the page.

I added some stamping and some eyelets and then threaded the wire through the eyelets.   I added some more wire winding it around my anchored wire just for some interest. 

Products I've used include


Viva Facetten Lack - crackling colour white



Darkroom Door Stamp

StazOn ink

Dylusions ink spray (London Blue, Campso Teal & Bubblegum Pink)

Heidi Swapp puffy alpha stickers

Art Alchemy Paint (Metallique Deep Water)

For my next layout although I wanted a similar colour palette I decided to use some Dina Wakley paints as my base.    (I didn't gesso first but did go in with a little bit later on)

I started by pencilling in where my bauble/lightglobe circles would be using the pink pencil I just happened to have on my desk. 

I then stamped and embossed a few butterflies.
I added my paint, some with a brayer, some with a brush and a little with my finger.   

I outlined my circles with a Posca pen then masked them off and did some stamping.

When I removed the mask I added some more stamping.

I punched out some butterflies and stamped more little ones around the page.   I mounted my photo and added some cardboard to the back so I could slip the lightglobe transparency underneath.
I then finished with my title and a few embellishments.

Ranger Emboss It Dabber
Pipe Dream Ink Embossing powder
Dina Wakley acrylic paint (Magenta, Sky, Lemon & Lapis)
