Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all today, this time sharing my take on the November Sketch Challenge here at Scrapping Clearly. You can view all of the details of the current challenges by clicking here. Here is the sketch for November 2016...
...and here is my take on the sketch challenge for this month using lots of gorgeous products available from the Scrapping Clearly store. As you can see I ventured a little from the sketch but not by much :) I have simply moved a couple of things, etc. which is the best bit about sketches as they can be rotated etc. if required.
I also have a quick step-by-step tutorial for this layout below along with some closeup images also.
Step 1 - Using a palette knife, create an oval shape onto the background patterned paper with some Liquitex Glass Bead Effects Medium.
Step 2 - Paint over the top of the dried Liquitex Glass Bead Effects Medium using some Liquitex Gesso.
Step 3 - When the Liquitex Gesso is completely dry, spray over the top using some Colour Blast - Shimmer Spray - Envy and allow to dry naturally or heat dry using a heat tool.
Step 4 - Open the bottle of Shimmer Spray and, using the lid, splatter a couple of extra spots of the Envy colour around the page.
Step 5 - When the Colour Blast spray is dry, rub some Inka Gold - Gold over the top of the texture lightly to help it pop!
Step 6 - Cut random sized rectangles out of Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Patterned papers making sure not to cut any pieces bigger than the photograph that you are using for this page.
Step 7 - Layer the pieces of cut patterned papers along with some Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Ephemera pieces around the photograph just leaving a little piece showing for each layer to ensure the frame around the photo does not get too large.
Step 8 - Embellish the layout using various items from Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Chipboard, Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Delights, Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Ephemera, Maggie Holmes - Bloom Collection - Rubber Shapes. I have also added a few flowers from my stash to finish the layout off.
The complete product list used for this layout includes...
Well that is it from me today, don't forget that you can checkout the current challenges here on the Scrapping Clearly blog. Until next time, happy scrapping!
