All Smiles Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday crafty people!

Today I’m sharing a simple layout with a tutorial I made using the August scrapbooking kit. Some of the Mintay papers in the kit have some beautiful images that help guide designs, and this paper was perfect for a simplistic style.

I started my layout with treating some chipboard pieces. The lanterns are Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit. The clock and title are Dusty Attic from my stash. I treated all of the pieces with a couple of coats of white gesso.

I treated the clock with copper paint, and then added some wax paste for a distressed look.

In this closeup, you can see the worn look that the pastes create.

Next, I treated the lanterns with some sparkly paint, one in a shade of blue (Prima Sparks in Mermaid Sparkle) and pink (Prima Sparks in Butterfly Spells).

I kept the title simple by adding some blue pigment ink (Prima Color Philospohy in Summer Vibes).

Next, I traced the chipboard clock onto a piece of the Prima Santorini paper from the kit and cut it out. I distressed the circle, then added some chalk ink (Prima chalk in in Old Rose).

I used Glossy Accents in a fine tip container to adhere the chipboard to the paper.

Next, I added some adhesive tape to the back of the paper, and added some of the blue lace from the kit.

I wanted more layers to tuck under the clock, so I cut some of the Mintay papers with a tag die. I distressed the tags and added some sheer pink ribbon from my stash.

Before gluing the layers, I added some script stamping in Distress Ink (Tattered Rose and Frayed Burlap). Some other layers of die cuts are also shown- the peach die cut is from my stash, and the white border is two pieces cut from the Kaisercraft die from the August card kit.

I made some small cuts under the lanterns printed on the paper, then stuck the chipboard lantern pieces into the cuts.

Here’s some closeups of the completed layout:

One of the last things I did was dry-brush some white gesso over the flowers to tone down the colors.

I also added some of the Prima Say it in Crystals from the kit.
