I recently showed you my new stamp and we took a look at all the things it could do. And, after many votes, the favorite was #5, the white distress stain on kraft. So, with that popular vote, let's see how we can incorporate that into a layout!
I have grabbed a sheet of kraft and this great pict of my hubs and his canoe. I think the pale soft colors will work nicely with our stamping:Let's take a look at this beautiful mess of Crate, Bazzill, Jenni Bowlin and Basic Grey...I think we can work with this!
But, let's not get ahead of ourselves. First, we must stamp:
An entire sheet of kraft gets the stamp treatment:
Then, I cut it down into approximately 4x6 rectangles:
Ooooh, yes. That will be pretty:
Time to have some fun with layering! I have cut some various small squares and rectangles from Bazzill and Basic Grey:
After randomly tucking those in, I love the direction this is going!
I am also loving this new Bazzill dictionary paper and feel the need to get it in there too:
There we go...
And look what we have here! A brand new perf page from Jenni Bowlin:
Oh, yes! I like those in there too:
And now...border sticker time:
And since we just wrapped up pen week in my class with May Flaum, I think I'll do some doodling:
And now for some splattering. Sadly, I have used every last drop of my Mister Huey's White. So, I squeeze out some more of that Picket Fence Distress onto my kraft mat and give that a whirl:
Works for me!
I like the pop of black. Let's go with that!
Alrighty - title...Done!
Now for some shading. I learned this from watching Heidi Swapp on My Craft Channel. Use a Zig Pen to make shadows:
Title stitched down:
Twine tucked in:
And stapled down:
After a bit of washi, some pen lines and journalling...Done!
There we have it! The new stamp put to good use on a layout. Like many of you, I also liked some of the other variations...especially the gelato run through the Sizzix! Perhaps that will make it into a layout soon too. As always, thanks for visiting the Mailbox!
