My latest layout was created for the CSI design team and uses the inspiration word, "sweet". I am not a perfect person, but I have been called "sweet" by many people. In my journaling, I wrote some of the other adjectives people have used frequently to describe me in the past....well, at least the ones they have said to my face.
Our sponsors this month at CSI are:
Carolina Ghelfi Scrapbooking, Creative Embellishments, Scrap Matrix, and our cherished permanent sponsor is Flying Unicorn. Big thanks to all of our sponsors!
Adding a background that is textured gives depth to a layout. You can see that here. First, I do a little stamping around the area that will hold the photo and embellishments. Next, comes the modeling paste and stencil to add a pattern to my texture. Last, I sprinkle a little embossing powder and heat it.
Layering adds dimension, so you can find that in most of my scrapbooking. It takes more time, but is well worth the effort.
These layers of paper have been distressed slightly before painting a little gesso around the edges.
Doesn't the embossing add a lovely touch to the background and chipboard?
