I've just managed to squeeze in one extra Graphic 45 layout for my July Guest DT position for The Scrapbook Store. Again, I'm using the stunning Bohemian Bazaar range. I thought I'd try something different this time though and show how those knock-your-socks-off bright colours can also be used for a softer layout.
To soften the bright yellow background paper I brushed it lightly with gesso and gave it a few sprays of white Dylusions ink spray. I used gesso through a stencil to give the background a bit more interest and fussy-cut the leaves and flowers from the Bohemian Bazaar papers
Don't you just love the shutters? They're made with a die I got from The Scrapbook Store. You can buy it here. The "Wish List" tag is from the Bohemian Bazaar Chipboard Tags set.
I wanted a bit more happening a the top of the page so I hand painted a few little seagulls. Here's a close up:
I'm no budding Rembrandt but I think it works!
A big thanks to Suzanne, Marelize and the team at The Scrapbook Store for having me on board for the month of July. It's been fabulous!
Til next time...
