'F*^k Cancer' by Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!!

Happy Easter!! I hope the Easter bunny has been kind to you.

Today I am sharing my latest layout featuring lots of amazing Bee Arty products including papers from the Graffiti Grunge and Covid Capers collections.

***PLEASE NOTE: This post includes the 'f' word so if you are sensitive to swear words please look away. In this instance the 'f' word is perfect to describe the last year for my little family.***

'F*^k Cancer'

To start my layout, I cropped a sheet of patterned paper from the Covid Capers collection and mounted it on a sheet of the awesome Bee Arty Heavy Weight White Cardstock. I then used a palette knife to spread some of the Colour Blast Black Heavy Gesso over the central area.

Next I used the black gesso again with the That Way Stencil to add some more interest to the focal area. To apply the gesso, I use a latex make-up wedge with a very small amount of gesso and apply with a dabbing motion through the stencil. This ensures that the paint doesn't bleed under the stencil and you get nice crisp edges.

I used the tiniest star stamp from the Moments In Time Clear Stamp Set with some Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp around the focal area also.

I die cut the Honeycomb Metal Die from extra heavy weight white cardstock a couple of times and fussy cut some tags from the Graffiti Grunge Perfect patterned paper. I arranged all of the pieces and stapled them together before adding to the page.

I added the photo and embellishments next. Then I stamped some more stars using the Jet Black ink and stamps from the Moments In Time Set onto the extra white cardstock. I fussy cut each star and added to the page along with some quotes cut from the Covid Capers papers as well as the Graffiti Grunge Be Yourself paper. Finally I added the title using American Crafts Thickers as well as letters cut from the Untangle Lines patterned paper.
