I come today on Inkido to share with you my new spring layout, made with our new spring collection, named "Spring time" ! It's always a great pleasure to work with new papers, with new colours, designs ... This collection is great to start to scrap our springphotos ; indeed, there are warmer colors with very representative designs of the season, like Easter, butterflies ...
For my layout, i've prepared for you a tutorial which explain a little how i made this layout . It can give you some inspiration to use our papers or otherwise to understand how, from the begin to the end, i build my page.
Here is my layout for march !
STEP BY STEP "How to build this page?" :
This layout require not much material : papers and some material you have certainly in your scraproom like stamps, stencil, ink, paint, ...
I begin to chose my papers and some stencil that i would to use.
I choose some colors of ink, those are coordinated to my papers. And I use my stencils in several areas on my page.
In general, I enjoy to use frame for my photos on my pages. Then when I saw this sheet "Valentine hearts", I immediately noticed this beautiful designs on the frame that i like. So I removed the design within the frame and i cut this part carefully.
With a piece of 'cut'n dry i apply some brown ink on the boards of the frame.
Here, you can see, i begin to stamp here or there with different design. As always, at the end of my finished work, we don't see always all my stamps ;) it's the principle of the creation of the background page ! it give only a idea for the begin of my page.
On this close-up, we can see how i play with colours. Once the first colours applied, i use again other colours with the same stencil, and i get an overlayering of colours on my design. I use then a pen black, i draw the outline of the design aproximately.
I create my layout with different papers, i often use a borderpunch for one or more papers.
Here is time to bring some texture on my page ! i apply aproximately gesso on my design, and on other papers modeling paste with another stencil.
With a black pen, I accentuate the already drawn lines of the design.
Time to apply white acrylic with stamp on papers.
Always at the end of my work, i throw a few drops of ink on my page.
Here is how i build my 'spring'page !
i hope , this can help you to begin your page, to bring you some inspiration, other idea ... I hope you like it too !
