Hi there! Kelly here, with a quick tutorial and some ideas on how to use your chipboard and the punched out bits from your chipboard shapes in a new way.
"The Best Day Ever"
I decided to use this to create a whimsical layout...I added in some of the "Cloudy Skies" pieces, which I primed with Gesso, then used the same emboss/resist technique as I described above. I fussy cute the photos of my little girls and placed them upon the clouds.
Behind the cloud pieces I tucked away threads, cheesecloth, tissue paper, and pearl flourishes to add to the whimsical feel. Here are some close ups of the finished project:
I added the Best Day Ever title, which was simply embossed with white powder.
The small hearts are also "left over" pieces from the Hearts Panel.
Best Day Ever
along with "punch outs" from...
Bits of Honey
Here is another layout I created using a similar background style, once again using "leftovers" from the Quatrefoil Panel, along with the Directions set.
Nothing like a cluster of arrows to draw attention to the photo, right?
To add extra texture to the quatrefoil pieces I sprinkled on some white mica fragments, and also dabbed them with a texture medium.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look! I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial, and will try it out yourself!!
