"Watch me Grow" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

Hi Crafters

Here is a bright, fun, easy to create page that I hope you'll have lots of fun creating.

"Watch me Grow"



For this page I've used the following

Colour Artist Inks Calypso
Colour Artist Inks Mermaid
Colour Artist Inks Soot

***

Firstly I've used a stencil and smoothed some White heavy gesso through it.
I focused on two different areas - the left side and right side and wanted a triangle kind of effect.



I left it to dry naturally overnight - a heat gun works also.
Once it's completely dry, I've dripped some Colour Artist Inks Mermaid and used water to help it move into the gaps  - some I want to soak into the paper and some will sit on the gesso.


Repeat the process with Colour Artist Inks Calypso.


Finally I added a very small amount of Colour Artist Inks Soot and again added some water to help it move.


I love how this background looks! The inks move so nicely around the gesso and are almost like watercolour. 


It's at this point that I wonder what to do next.
I'm looking at the layout thinking about the shapes I've used - hexagons, triangle (square/rectangle photo) - I'm only missing circles.
So I grab some empty toilet rolls and dip them in Black Heavy Gesso


With the little bit of left over Black Heavy Gesso I add some water and using a paint brush, add a couple of splatters around the page.


Finally I've added my photo - with paper cluster and title.
I struggled choosing a title and a position, but in the end, I love how the title suits the photo and has a lovely pop of contrast on the page.

You can see the whole process in the video below.






Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping
