All 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. Love the colors in this kit. After I ripped up the cardboard and the paper I fused the two together using Mod Podge. I gave it white wash with my own mix of water and gesso, then added some stamping.The kit had a lovely new Prima stencil in it which I then used with some Fiber Paste to add some texture.After the Fiber Paste dried everything got several shots of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, including the cheesecloth, which was added with gel medium.After adding some circles with another stencil and some paint, I highlighted with a white Faber Castell Gelato. I love micro beads so they found their way into the crevices of the cardboard.
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!
