Traditional Layout

DSC_0001All this craziness started with scrapbooking several years ago.  Lately I find myself coming back to basics when in my creative space.  For me the basics are “traditional” scrapbooking and card making.  I say “traditional” with quotes, because there really isn’t any such a thing.  But in my mind it is a simple 12″ x 12″ paper layout, with a title, a photo, maybe some journaling and flower or two.  This layout uses the May kit from Swirlydoos including the layout sketch.  DSC_0001Love the colors in this kit.  After I ripped up the cardboard and the paper I fused the two together using Mod Podge.  DSC_0002I gave it white wash with my own mix of water and gesso, then added some stamping.DSC_0003DSC_0004The kit had a lovely new Prima stencil in it which I then used with some Fiber Paste to add some texture.DSC_0003After the Fiber Paste dried everything got several shots of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, including the cheesecloth, which was added with gel medium.DSC_0004After adding some circles with another stencil and some paint, I highlighted with a white Faber Castell Gelato.  DSC_0005I love micro beads so they found their way into the crevices of the cardboard.DSC_0002

A few flowers, circle punches, a picture and a title, and wallah!  At the last minute – I’ve decided to enter into some challenges – why not? Right?!  Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog is Anything Goes – lucky for me!  Thanks for stopping by!
