Hello again! Today I´d like to share a fun project I created for/with the Canvas Corp Brands products. It made me especially happy to see them use this particular layout as one of their webshop category photo (see here). Thanks so much, Canvas Corp Brands, had my little proud moment when I saw it there <3!!
Here is my start to finish layout project:
As a base for this layout I use the thick hand made paper from Canvas Corp. It is perfect for misted projects, as it is thicker than regular cardstock and also absorbs and reacts diffeerently with inks and mists than regular paper. So I first marked the areas where I would want to place my photos and banners with a pencil, before adding some white light texture paste onto the background. I used a „numbers“ The Crafter´s Workshop stencil for this purpose.
I also used a 6×6″ sized The Crafter´s Workshop stenicl to add additional texture and pattern here and there. I let the paste air dry.
Next I misted the paper with water spray and then added blue, red and yellow spray ink. I let the ink spread quite freely around the paper.
While the paper was drying, I started inking the canvas bunting pieces. Here I used a Simply Sheer dark red tone mist and blue and yellow Baseboard tones. I added all three colors to each banner and let them dry a little.
I also added some black Glimmer Glaze splatters here and there. Me and black Glimmer Glaze – partners for life 😉 …
While the banners were drying, I stamped some patterns onto the layout background using a hand carved stamp and blue ink.
Then I drew some hearts here and there with black high impact paint and a thin paint brush.
and then again, some black Glimmer Glaze …
and next some doodles and arrows hand drawn with a black Sharpie.
Time to put the banners and the photos on their places. I used Evalicious puffy stickers and cork stars (I think these are by Studio Calico..) as embellishments. Then I added some wood veneer letters, but they didn´t stand out enough from the background, so I painted them with black High Impact paint.
Next I outlined the stenciled numbers with a pencil for more contrast.
and here is the finished layout:
I hope you have enjoyed reading thru this little start to finish tutorial. Wish you happy scrappy times!!!
