I'm here to share another layout using Pink Paislee's Fancy Free Collection!! available from my favourite scrappy store All About Scrapbooks.
This really will be my last one, as I have none left!!
Hmmmm maybe I could restock.....
This is the fourth layout I've created with this range.....and this one was just begging to be done.
When I saw that gorgeous floral paper, I just knew I had to cut into it.
So I started by applying white gesso in a thin layer to my white bazzill. This acts as a barrier, and allows the paint to sit on top, rather than seep into the paper.
I then mixed my three paint colours together (pink, orange and white), and brushed it onto my cardstock.
Once dry I applied texture paste using the wood grain section of my stencil, along one side.
I then added a few layers of papers behind my photos.
Now came the fun part! Cutting out those flowers and leaves. I really wasn't fussy with this part, as the watercolour look lends itself to imperfection.
I layered these up around my photo, along with my title and a few leftover embellishments.
Again, to finish off the layout, I cut a small strip from 2 sides, and then adhered it to a 12x12 paper from the range. I love how this frames the page.
So who picked that this is another layout inspired by the fabulous Wilna Furstenberg?
It's got me using flowers again on my layouts!
I love that about scrapbooking!
There's always new techniques and everything old is new again.
I love that my style is constantly evolving.
I love that I am continuously learning.
I love that I am being pushed as an artist.
I love that I am stepping out of my comfort zone.
I love that there is no right and no wrong.
Isn't it a wonderful hobby/passion?!?
