Hello! Today I am here to share a layout I made featuring a photo of my
Grandma when she was a teenager.
I bought this sheet of paper from Treasured Memories during the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in September. It is part of their exclusive dark edged paper line.
First I coated the paper with matte medium. Once that was dry I applied a coat of clear gesso over the entire surface. (not shown). While I waited for this to dry I prepped my chipboard frames.
I began by painting the frames with two coats of Victorian Velvet Distress paint.
Next I tapped my Clear Embossing Ink pad over the surface of each frame and covered with Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. Before heating the embossing powders I rubbed off some of it off so it exposed some of the pink paint underneath.
Next I took some of my white gesso and applied some on over a portion of my paper
using a palette knife.
After the gesso had dried I applied some Distress Crazing Medium over the gesso.
My next step here was to take some Distress paints in browns, grey and black and use my finger to apply it over the cracks left by the crazy medium.
Next I took a background stamp, some embossing ink & some Distress Powder in Aged Mahogany to add another texture over the focal area.
Just before assembling my focal point I decided to splatter some paint over the background too.
