Hi everyone. In my last post I chose to showcase a few of the neutral tones of this beautiful new C'est la Vie collection. Today I have gone with more colour, focussing on the roses and foliage and the amazing base sheet that is just ready for some trimmings. This is a really simple page and incorporates the patterned paper, decoupage sheet, chipboard and ephemera. You can bulk it up or leave it fairly flat so it can still fit into a sleeve.
Take a selection of ephemera and decoupage pieces. Ink in a coordinating colour and give shape to the leaves and petals.
Ink around the edges of the 12x12 patterned paper.
I wanted a soft colouring to for the chipboard. Lightly coat with gesso, let dry then dab layers of ink to coordinate. Use dark colours as they soak in and lighten. It will give you a mottled stone look.
Start to layer each of your pieces as pictured.
After you've got your ephemera and chipboard in place I have tucked some muslin in and around the foliage to give it a subtle lift and some more texture. This is optional.
Until next time Happy Creating! K
