Geometrical Travel Double Page Layout

Another page for my geometrical album, this album is completed just need to make the hinge and cover so not 100% but I would say 75% all the pages are done which is the fun part.  Then of course instructions arghhh.

Started with taping the two pages together, then applied rust paste along the outer edge.  I like to use a baby wipe smooth out edges and pull some of the color into the center of the layout.  I also used blue patina paste my friend laughed because she said  it's not part of that kit but I LOVE BLUE!

Add some texture circles and splats with art achemy paints- emerald green, gold rush.  I also added a shadow on the splat.

Start putting it all together.  Paint chipboard with gold acrylic paint, dry, lightly sand then ink with ground espresso distress ink.  The ink settles into sanded portion and wipes off paint- grungy!

Add die cut elements and draw around with charcoal extending lines pass die cut edges smear with fingertip.

I drew around some of the circle texture with a black gel pen.

Add cheesecloth, I color with magicals then paint with sculpture medium.  If you haven't tried the medium go out and buy it now then play.  The cheesecloth painted with medium will hold its shape so all those wonderful wrinkles and gathered ridges stay.  That's right they stay.

Add your photos and more die cuts.  Sprinkle on embossing enamel and heat set from the bottom, it looks like sprakles.

Here is a super good shot of the embossing enamel sprinkled in cheesecloth.  By heat setting from underneath you don't need to use versamark, if you try heating from the top the embossing enamel will all blow away, far far away.

Thorughout this album i have been experimenting with twine, for this page i made an arrow with brads and twine.  So COOL.

The twine adds another layer but not a solid heavy layer.  Plus since i didn't glue it down you get some shadows on layout.

More fun angles.
