Karine's here today to share with you three layouts I created with our amazing Serendipity collection. My first one is called Moment.
I used the Fascination paper as my background. My composition is entered around the Ornate Frame, which I embossed with brown embossing powder . While the powder was still hot, I sprinkled some glass glitter.
My title piece is part of the French Words set. I painted it with white gesso first, and added some mist after. To make it pop a little bit, I added a few touches of white gesso.
I used exactly the same products to alter my Floral Lattice Bits.
To add texture to my background, I used the Forever stamps set.
My second layout is called Reminisce. Here it is.
I used the Merriment paper as my background.
To mat my picture, I used some cards from the Calling Cards paper.
I used the Quatrefoil panel behind my picture. I simply covered it with white gesso.
In my embellishments cluster, I used the Leafy Page Accents. To alter the chipboards, I used the Imagine Ink Garnet Embossing Powder and while it was still hot, I sprinkled some Pearl Embossing Powder.
My title piece, the Serendipity Words 2, was treated with the same steps.
I also used the Essential Textures stamps to alter my background paper.
My last layout is called Everlasting Love.
I used the Inspiration paper.
I centered my composition around the Gazebo chipboard. I started out by painting it with white gesso. I covered everything with two mist colors to get the right shade of blue. I wanted more texture, so I used the Garden Frolic stamp set and ink to add more interest. Finally, I added some grained grit over the roof of the Gazebo.
My title piece, the Everlasting Love chipboard, was primed with white gesso and then, I painted half of it with some mist.
You can see in the pictures that I used the Garden Frolic stamps sets to alter my background as well. I just love the stamps from this set: they are so versatile: lattice pattern (black ink), handwritten script (blue ink), some flowers (black ink).
I hope you'll give the Serendipity collection a try! It is just gorgeous.
Have a great day.
