Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here today with ‘Tutorial Tuesday’. I can’t wait to share with you a fun technique incorporated into my project today
I wanted to take you through how I created the beautiful but subtle Poinsetta and Holly background on my page today.
Step 1: Stamp the images from the Christmas Edition stamp set featuring the Poinsetta and Holly leaves onto the backgound using a white ink pad. I have stamped in the areas that would see the effect peeking out from behind the script pattern paper I chose to go over the top on my page.
Step 2: Add clear or white Embossing Powder while the ink is still wet.
Step3: Remove the excess embossing powder and using a heat gun, heat to melt the embossing powder.
Step 4: Take a distress ink or oxides in a brown tone and gently add colour over the top of all the areas where the embossing is featured. Work in a circular motion to softly build up the colour.
Step 5: Using a dry old towel rub over the embossed areas to remove the ink colour that will be resisted by the embossed images. This adds a beautiful soft element to the page.
Step 6: Add droplets of water to activate the ink and then blot off with some paper towel
To finish your layout, add a torn piece of the ‘Snowcapped’ paper as well as some of the collectibles and elements from the sticker sheet. Enhance these with some florals and pearl strip as pictured as well as your journalling.
Here are some more pictures to help you get up close to all the details.
Here is the full scrapbook page for you to enjoy of a great family time we had when we recently visited Soverign Hill in Ballarat Victoria Australia. It is a place set back in the gold mining times. Each year they put on a wonderful Christmas in July celebration. I just knew this collection would be perfect for my photos captured that day!
