Belinda's December Projects

Hi all!
Today I have three layouts to share with you and a tutorial too.
First up is 'The Tie Dye Shirt'.

I have used some brand new fabo chipboard designed by Natalie May.

Here's what I used:

IDALC0001 Lower Case Letters
IDALC0001A Lower Case Letters
IDDL0018 Loolabelle's Nested Arrows

Here's how I made this layout:

Step 1:
Use a stencil and some Golden Light Molding Paste to add some interest to a sheet of white cardstock. Once dry, glue on your chipboard pieces.

Step 2:
Use a make-up wedge to apply white gesso over the top of the chipboard as well as the stencilled background. Add a little more gesso using a palette knife to give even more dimension and texture.

Step 3:
Apply some colour to the chipboard pieces on the layout using Faber-Castell Gelatos. Blend a little with your fingers.

Step 4:
Spray on a little water using a mini mister and let the colours run.

Step 5:
Now it's time to add even more colour using Dylusion Spray Inks.

And that is how I created my background!

My next layout is called 'Rise & Shine'.

For this layout, I altered my chipboard pieces using gesso and Heidi Swapp Color Shine.

Here's what I used:

IDS0017 Clock Face without centre or hands
IDDD0004 Denise's Fern

Lastly, I created this layout titled 'Mischief and Mayhem'.

I coloured the triangles on this layout with Cobalt Ranger Archival Ink, the lettering with Seafoam Heidi Swapp Color Shine and left the arrows in their raw state.

Here's what I used:

IDDL0023 Loolabelle's Love Arrows
IDS0083 Triangles in a board
IDW0088 Awesome Mischief Handsome
IDALC0001 Lower Case Letters
IDALC0001A Lower Case Letters

Thanks so much for checking out my projects today.
