Journey Layout with Rae

Hello crafty friends!

You have probably already seen our November kit reveal yesterday- isn’t it lovely? My heart skipped a beat when I saw the Aga Baraniak Dreamland papers! This kit is filled with so many beautiful embellishments as well. For my first layout, I based my layout on this mood board that is for our November challenge:

Here’s what I came up with:

I started with cutting out tags and some of the flower and leaf elements. Then I added a white wash to all of the paper elements with a mixture of white gesso and water.

In this closeup below, you can see how the whitewashing gave the papers an aged, muted look. I added some grommets and twine to the tags for added texture.

I added the clock and gears from the kit. The frame around the picture is from my stash- I gave it a light coat of pale green wax paste, then added some green artisan powder for a dimensional look.

The green and yellow flowers are from the kit, and I also added some light red and pink ones to give the peachy pink flowers I cut from the papers a bit of a pop.

The lace and gears are also from the kit and are nice small touches to the design of my layout.
