I’m delighted to share my first project that I made using the October scrapbook kit, which you can purchase here: October Goodness.
For this layout I used the Prima Marketing Misty Rose papers in the kit. I started by adding clear gesso to the papers, once dry, I ripped the “Memorable Floral Wall” paper. I did some stenciling with some crackle paste. Then, I added water, then sprayed both pieces with water, then the 13 Arts Pearl Turquoise spray from the kit. I wiped up the excess moisture with a wet paper towel to expose the stenciling and lighten the color, then I used some brown distress ink around the edges, and glued both of the ripped pieces to the Prima “Scented Love” paper.
In this closeup below, you can see the stenciling detail, as well as the distressed look of the Dusty Attic Chipboard- I used Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in aged copper from my stash to achieve that mottled look.
In the middle, I placed my photo with a mat and cut some elements from one of the Prima papers for some ephemera layers, and made flower clusters on each side of the photo. The clusters are a combination of flowers from the kit as well as some from my stash.
I added the beautiful white applique leaves to both clusters, as well as some leftover die cuts I had from my watercolor canvas that I will be sharing this month. They are cut from white cardstock, and painted with the Prima Marketing Metallic Accents from the October Mixed Media kit.
I also added a title using the 13 Arts chipboard panel- Fun Days, which I also sprayed with the 13 Arts Pearl Turquoise mist.
I added some white gesso to the flower clusters to soften the colors.
