Donna Espiritu Pen and Ink Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers Tutorials

“Beautiful” Pen & Ink Layout by Donna Espiritu

April 24, 2018

Hello, everyone!
It’s Donna here with you today sharing a scrapbooking layout tutorial using the Pen and Ink collection. I’ve debated between making a card and layout. Of course, the layout won!

So, let’s start with the short step-by-step tutorial:

  1. I started with a white cardstock as the base. I will be trimming an inch off of this white cardstock later as you will see in the next steps. I mounted my photos with some foam tape for a bit of height.

2. To add texture and a bit of color, I used a mixture of black, brown and white metallic mists. I kept on adding white glimmer mist until it mixed beautifully with the brown and black mists. Using a heat tool, I dried the splatters before adding modeling paste with a spatula and stencil.

3. I placed a doily underneath the photo before adhering with glue.

4. I fussy cut a lot of images from one of the Pen & Ink specialty paper. I love how vibrant the black images are against the soft sepia tones of the papers in the collection.

5. As mentioned earlier, I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock. Then, I adhered it on the Lacey patterned paper.

6. I started embellishing after this with the Collectables and the rest of the fussy cut images from the specialty paper, Antiques.

7. For the final touch, I scattered black rhinestones following the diagonal flow of the page design.

Here are more detailed shots of the finished layout

I tucked in some wood flourishes and left them as is for a bit of color contrast.

I mounted some of the ephemera pieces with foam tape for dimension.

That’s all for now. I hope you liked my project! Do leave a comment if you have any questions regarding today’s project.

Thank you so much for dropping by and see you with a new project in a few days.

Happy crafting,

Donna

Fairy Garden Jowilna Nolte Layouts Misty Mountains Tutorial Tuesday Tutorials

Tuesday Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

March 27, 2018

I love creating layouts using more than 1 range of papers. Finding ways of incorporating different papers and elements together is so much fun.
Today I am showing you how I used the 2 ranges from this month together to create a double page layout. And I simply love it!

and


In my opinion it adds lots of interest. It can also help you use up all your stash that may be stumping your creativity a bit.
Use what you have and find ways to make it work together beautifully.

Adding Interest to your flowers

For my flower centers I used a custom mixture of different coloured micro-beads and glitter. I wanted to add some dimension to the flowers
and this was the perfect way to do it without too much bulk. The different colours also helped to pull together all the different colours in my layout.

step 1 – Cut out all the flowers for your layout using your Precision scissors from the Moonstone paper sheet.

step 2 – Add a small amount of dimensional glaze where you want to add the beads.

step 3 – Lightly sprinkle the micro-bead mixture over the glaze and leave to dry. Decant the excess beads back into the container.

Adding colour to the background

To pull everything together on my background I used different inks in green and purple, representing the two different ranges of papers.

step 1 – Add a few drops of ink onto a small plastic packet. Lightly mist the ink with water.

step 2 – Stamp the ink onto the patterned paper sheets you are using on your background.


step 3 – Leave the ink to dry completely and then cut your different papers into strips to use on your background.

The inked paper strips form my background and the inked pieces adds interest and ties everything together beautifully.

Cluster the flowers in the top left and right hand corners to frame your photos and paper strips in the middle.

A few dark purple elements like the stamped triangle and buttons pick up on the dark purple pieces throughout the layout.

I hope this inspires you to try using different collections together for something new. I love creating with different collections – using what I love from each one.
Until next time, Love Jowilna!

Kaisercraft Products: Fairy Garden Collection: P2488 Fantasy | P2491 Fluttering | P2495 Moonstone | CT932 Collectables

 

 

 

My favourite thing to do is layer and add dimension, dont be afraid to double mount an image and then add a couple more layers in between to close in your photo.

I love Butterflies, with a few quick fussy cut ones you can add movement to your page.

 

 

 

To make the title stand out add a Collectable Doily and a Title with foam mount…..

Till next time have a creative day.
