Hello Hello :)
Today I thought I would share with you a quick and easy layout that I created and put together in about an hour. I have made the element cluster quite small with lots of 'white space', but it can easily be 'changed up' to accomodate a larger photo :) :) :)
I began by creating the background; this is a 12 x 12 chipboard background that has been spray painted with white gesso. I have then done a huge spray of blue mist in the centre. I then gave this a light spray with white gesso and dried it with the heat gun.
With my selected photo I punched it out with a scallop circle shape, and positioned it over the misted area.
I looped up some white wire thread in a freestyle manner. I then coloured it with the same blue mist that I used on the background. I then placed this over the photo.
When I was creating my background I also spraypainted a chipboard tree and 2 word titles. I then gave them a light spray with the blue mist and dried them with a heat gun. The tree is positioned to the left of the photo.
I have adhered all elements; the photo, wire and tree to the background using a blue coloured staple.
I have adhered 2 metal branches over the top of the chipboard tree with strong clear drying glue.
I have adhered the chipboard workd titles in the same manner.
To complete the layout I have added some extra splats of brass metallic paint to the background to coordinate with the metal elements.
Well that is it from me for the moment I do hope you are enjoying the awesome inspiration by the team!
Cheers and Happy Scrapping :)
