|Did you participate in JumpStart 2013? I DID! and it
gave me enough confidence to try some of the new techniques I learned to
create my own background paper for this Layout!!! |
I made this page from one blank piece of 12x12 Super Stock (from the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine store), some Ranger distress ink, baby wipes and myStamp Box stamps and embossing powders. The process was so quick and easy that I know I will be doing more of this.
I first stamped and heat embossed the frame of words on my blank super stock... Do this BEFORE you put the photo down or it will melt! I then randomly applied my two colors of distress ink using the foam applicator tool - going right over the embossed wording - and then used a damp baby wipe to remove all the ink from the embossed words. I lightly wiped over the entire page to blend the inks together... the key here is LIGHTLY wiping with a DAMP wipe! The 120lb super stock can take the distress to a point, but if it gets too wet the paper will start to ball up and breakdown. That's It... I added my photos, some embellishments and stamped a border using my Fleurishing Punctuation stamps, and I framed the main photo with the details in my own hand-writing. What a cute layout for future girlfriends to enjoy!
|I used Pixel Perfect and Fleurishing Punctuation and Sigh, Gush, Gasp stamp sets on this layout|
