First Noel – Layout Inspiration

October 10, 2018

FIRST NOEL

Nobody does a double layout better than Jowilna.  
Today we share a stunning one she has created using the new First Noel Christmas collection.

Papers: First Noel Collection – P2613 Wrapped | P2615 Wonderful | P2616 Holy Night | P2618 Hark | P2621 Starry
KC Products:CT946 Collectables | FL364 Flourishes | SS372 Sticker Sheet | Double Sided Tape
Other:Gesso, Gold Leafing

 INSTRUCTIONS

[step 1]
To create the background for your layout, use double sided tape and adhere WRAPPED and HOLY NIGHT together at the back.

[step 2]
Decide the placement of your photo and make small pencil marks.
Use gesso to add some interest to the background by painting a frame around the photo area.
Leave the gesso to dry.

[step 3]
Cut out elements from your patterned papers HARK, WRAPPED, and WONDERFUL.
Ink the edges of the elements to hide any cutting marks.

[step 4]
Use double sided tape and adhere your matted photo 8cm (3 ¼”) from the left edge
and 4.5cm (1 ¾ “) from the bottom of your background.

[step 5]
Use a 5mm and 2cm wide double-sided tape and create a corner using the tape.
Adhere the thinner tape first and then the wider tape to create a corner around the bottom right hand corner of your photo.

[step 6]
Remove the backing from the double-sided tape.

[step 7]
On the sticky taped areas add gold leafing liberally and flatten with your fingers until the entire piece of tape is covered in gold.
Use a soft flat medium sized paint brush and remove brush over the gold leafing until it gives a nice smooth finish.
Brushing the leafing will also remove any excess flakes.
Return the excess back into your container.

[step 8]
Adhere your cut-out wreath in the top right-hand side of your layout.
Use a combination of cut out twigs, leaves and collectable elements and adhere them to the wreath.
Add 2 gold birds on either side.

[step 9]
Add cut out gift boxes, houses and other elements to finish off your layout. Add diamante and white paint splash.
