Hi it's Lesley here and today I am sharing a layout and how I went about creating it.
I have used a few different techniques with this layout. Commencing
with a clear white piece of cardstock I have used Pan Pastels to shade
and tint the background. Still experimenting with this wonderful new
medium and tried out deeper shades this time, you can obtain such a
lovely effect that I will continue to play and hopefully master this new
technique. I then sprayed it with a fixative to retain it and overlaid
it with more white cardstock which has been cut around the edges on the
Super 8 punch which I have edged in Lilac 'Stampin Up' ink.
I spotted the perfect floral paper in my LSS and cut a piece of that
and have used MS punches on the top and bottom edges of that. Down the
side I have used the new Crafters Workshop negative image stamps, again
with 'Stampin Up' light blue ink, love the way they look like you have
drawn them. The note sheet and flowers are Prima, the dove from
Websters products, and the scrolls at the sides of the flowers are
chippies. I used another technique on these, I painted them with Gesso
so I was able to dab the brush on it to create texture and then lightly
used metallic rub ons over it to create just a hint of pink, this only
adhered to the raised areas created by the Gesso....Enjoy.
Cheers and thank Lesley
