Memory with Belinda Spencer

Hello Scrapping Clearly peeps!!

It's Belinda here today to share my latest layout for Scrapping Clearly featuring some stunning products from the store.


I started my layout with a sheet of gorgeous patterned paper from the 49 & Market Old School Mini Paper Collection. This is such a cool paper pack that also includes a 12 x 12 sheet of die cuts. The paper I chose is just one sheet even though it looks like a whole bunch of layers stuck together. I love this look so much but it was messing with my head trying to keep my photo straight on the page!! LOL I solved this optical monkey business by placing a metal ruler inside the right hand side and lining my photo up with that. So much easier!

I used the Mini Mosiac Squares 6x6 Stencil from The Crafters Workshop with some black gesso on the background.

Next I wanted to have a play with the brand new Vicki Boutin Colour Study Stamps so I added some of those to my background using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink

I wanted to make it a little more grungy so I sprayed some Black Marble Dylusions Ink Spray on and let it drip. I also flicked some Heidi Swapp Tea Colour Shine over the top (once the black was dry).

Then I created a stack of papers using some die cuts from the 49 & Market Everyday Artistry Ephemera Stacks (that I had in my stash), a die cut from the Old School Mini Paper Collection, book paper and a torn piece of Heidi Swapp 6x6 die cut paper. I shuffled all the bits around and then stapled them together in the centre before adding to my page. I added some messy black thread on top of the stack.

I stamped some bugs from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Specimen Stamp Set onto some 49 & Market Everyday Artistry paper using the Jet Black ink. I fussy cut each image and slipped in around the photo stack. Then I added my photo.

Finally I added some Mini Metal Stars by Prima, some large black sequins, quote stickers and the title. For the title I used a Heidi Swapp Wood Veneer word that I inked with the Jet Black ink. I used a white Posca Pen to decorate and make the word stand out more. I used the star from the Vicki Boutin stamp set to create star embellishments.

Here's what I used:
49 & MARKET Everyday Artistry Paper & Ephemera Stacks
black gesso
PRIMA Finnabair Mechanicals Mini Stars
