Happy Sunday ! I hope you have all being getting some crafty time in this weekend.
Time for another blog post from me and this week I am sharing a colourful boy layout using the following gorgeous colours from the Colour Blast range - Tangareen Dream, Deep Water and Dusty Charcoal.
Colour Blast products can be found here at the shop .
So lets have a quick look at a few of the products we will be using to complete this layout, not only do we have our gorgeous Colour Blast products but we have a couple of great stencils and stamps.
Lets begin our layout!!
Step 1 - Using a white piece of cardstock, Star stencil and modelling paste and using a palette knife, spread modelling paste over your stencil to create a star background. Once dry, spray in lines across your page in several layers to build up your colours and on your last layer tip the paper to the left to create the drips that go to the left side.
Step 2 - after the sprays have completely dried, add your second stencil layer using Colour Blast Dusty Charcoal, Tangareen Dream and Deep Water to the left side of the page.
Step 3 - Using a couple of background stamps and black versamark ink stamp around the area to the right where your photo will be sitting. Add a little stamping to the left of the page as well.
Step 4 - Using a black marker draw around some of the stars to make them pop! I also used the marker and a rectangle lid off a storage container to add hand drawn triangles on the left and right side of the page.
You can see the lightly drawn triangles with a couple of crosses on them in the left hand corner on the bottom photo.
Step 5 - I am a little in love with this Ranger Clear liquid Embossing Dauber, makes embossing large pieces of chipboard so much easier!! I used a combination of Tangareen Dream and Deep Water Embossing Powder, the powders love to blend together where they meet in the middle.
Step 6- Using black versamark ink cover your border chipboard piece with the ink, then dry, then using your finger cover the piece with a layer of Dusty Charcoal Texture Paste.
Step 7 - Here are some close ups of the layering once i put the layout together.
I added black cotton thread underneath the photo on the bottom near the black piece of chipboard. A star sticker, and then i added a few die cuts from Cocoa Vanilla Studios, some with 3D mounting tape. Some journalling on a orange journal spot and a flair from Funky Flairs Studio.
I positioned the embossed chipboard underneath the photo, with the larger piece more to the upper right to counter balance my built up background to the left.
I used the black versamark ink to ink around the edges of the die cuts to 'grunge' them up a bit.
Gotta love that Shimmer and Shine.
Hope that you have enjoyed my tutorial today and that you have a go at 'grunging' up a boy's page :-)
Make sure you leave some love.
