As soon as i saw this color palette i knew what pictures i wanted to use.
Here is the final layout!
I used distress paint, distress ink, modeling paste, mister huey spray, stencils, chipboard, twine, and brads to create my final project.
I sprayed the words with mister huey color spray, once dried i used star stencil and gathered twigs distress ink and added stars along the edge and in words.
I also used burlap and dot stencil with rusty hinge and peacock distress ink along opposite edge. I re-positioned the stencil several times to cover more area. Using different stencils and colors of distress ink adds more layers and I LOVE LAYERS.
Final step in creating the background was to mix black distress paint with modeling paste then spread on speckle stencil to add highlights of black on top. I also painted words with black distress paint.
Background completed next... add pictures and embellishments.
i painted chevron chipboard with rusty hinge and peacock distress ink. Added around photo and in corners.
added the story and secured with brads, because i don't think a layout is finished without metal. I also added twine to tags, i held up the twine and let it fall where everywhere then glued it in place.
Happy scrapping, now to find my next challenge.
