Today I am sharing a layout I created for the November Challenge on the Quick Quotes Blog. I am encouraging you to Tear It Up!
When I first started scrapbooking I had to have everything measured and cut and nice and clean. I have changed! One of my favorite ways to add texture is really easy - just tear and layer your paper! Here is a layout I created with the Farmhouse Collection.
I started by laying the light blue paper on top of the floral print. Next I tore the top paper in 3 different places, inking the edges with Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
This month we are doing a cross promotion with Want2Scrap. I took the opportunity to add a little mixed media to my project by applying spackling paste through their small brick stencil.
After the paste dried, I added color to the bricks with Sunset and Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Inks.
Want2Scrap also manufactures chipboard quotes. I chose to use one as a title and I wanted to make it 2 different colors. I masked off the lower half of the quote and painted the top word with gesso.
Next I used Caribbean Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink to color the word "believe". After it dried, I covered the entire chipboard quote with clear ink and clear embossing powder.
Here are a few close ups of the page:
I folded back the edges of the tear on the top of the page and added a die cut sticker from the Farmhouse collection.
The tear on the side of the page is more of a peek-a-boo.
I also added a die cut sticker to the tear on the bottom of the page.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
