Hello creatives. I hope you have been filling your albums with lots of creativity over the past week. My project this week worked perfectly with a couple of product ranges from the Fireworks & Chit Chat ranges.
I started with a base of 350gsm white cardstock. I mixed a little of the Peacock Shimmer dust with water and painted it on the page with a wide brush. I have then dropped a little of the Soot dye ink in a palette and used the same brush with plenty of water and added it to the white spaces in between. I then loaded the brush with less watered down colour and went around the outer edge of the page.
I have then worked out my photo stack. I have mounted my photo on to a piece of Fireworks Magical cardstock then some corrugated card and that is then put onto another piece of the Magical cardstock. I have worked out placement and popped this aside while I create more layers on the background.
I've added another layer to the page by using the Fireworks stencil - Candles and Impasto Gel. After adhering this I sped up the drying time by using my heat gun. This Gel can be a little tacky until completely dry and even after fully drying can still be touch tacky. You can alleviate this at the end of the project if you do not like it by using a little Dorlands Wax Media over these parts of the layout.
As the Gel dries it becomes translucent and glass like - similar to Glossy Accents.
After the drying of the Impasto Gel I have used the Scrabble clear stamp from the Chit Chat range. I have inked it up and stamped over some of the alphas and in various places up and down the page. After this step I have used some washi tape at the base of some of the numbers also adding it horizontally across the page.
I have used an American Crafts Thickers font to create the title and added a few timber embellishments after adhering the photo stack to the page.
I hope you have enjoyed the process for this page. Have another fabulously creative week.
thanks for popping by
