Rachel here with you today with a fun holiday layout.
I started by adding some Black Heavy Gesso to a piece of white 12x12 cardstock. Once that was dry I applied Deep Water, Sunshine and Lipstick Colour Pastes in varying thicknesses for some texture.
Because the pastes were quite thick in some places
I left the page to completely dry naturally.
I came back to it a few days later, added some stamping then trimmed
the whole page in to random-sized strips.
I then painted the edge of each of the strips with
White Heavy Gesso for some definition.
Next, I layered the strips onto a piece of
black cardstock in a cross shape.
The next step was to add some splatters, with watered-down White Heavy Gesso,
Now to some embossing! I heat embossed the chevrons with Deep Water and Rose Petal Colour Embossing Powders.
I applied White Heavy Gesso to the chipboard words and large chevrons. I then applied water-activated Peacock Colour Shimmer Dust, and then sprayed with
Singin' The Blues Colour Shimmer Spray.
So here's a look at the finished page. I added some 'clean' left over strips around the photo with foam tape to add more dimension and to highlight the photo.
A few close ups-
Thanks for looking
