Now & then (start to finish layout) – Canvas Corp Brands

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:

Sanna LippertAs 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.

Sanna LippertI 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.

Sanna LippertNext 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.

Sanna LippertWhile 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.

Sanna LippertI also added some black Glimmer Glaze splatters here and there. Me and black Glimmer Glaze – partners for life 😉 …

Sanna LippertWhile the banners were drying, I stamped some patterns onto the layout background using a hand carved stamp and blue ink.

Sanna LippertThen I drew some hearts here and there with black high impact paint and a thin paint brush.

Sanna LippertTime 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.

Sanna LippertNext I outlined the stenciled numbers with a pencil for more contrast.

Scared yet? – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there, today I´d like to share a little start to finish layout video with you that I created for The Crafter´s Workshop. It has been a while since I last posted a video here, so I think it is proper to end this year with at least one more video :). I have used various 6×6 inch stencils on this layout and combined those with different embossing media. I also used the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio „Destination Unknown“ papers here. I was lucky to win a set for me and a scrappy friend earlier this year and I´ve been saving and admiring them for a while now. Sooo..time to finally open the collection and start using them :). Love the colours!! I hope you get inspired to try these techniques and create your own interesting background patterns!

And here is the finished layout – there are more detail photos to be seen on the video :)..:
