January Limited Edition Kit
to share with you!

And now without further ado, I'd like to share my layout with you

 
 
This is a layout of a dear friend of mine's wedding day, photos complementary of Breanna Rein of Rein Jenkins Photography!
 
I used the Beautiful Kaisercraft Ohh La La Collection found in this kit to create this layout. As you can see, it's a relatively simple layout with a lot of fussy cutting and punching. I added a lot of doilies to add to that soft delicate look.
 
Here are a few close ups of my layout

My Creative Scrapbook January Limted Edition Kit DT Layout

 
 
 
 
 
Hello Everyone, thanks for stopping by!
I hope you all are enjoying 2017 so far!
 
Today I am super excited to share a DT layout for
using the 
 
 
 
 
This is a layout created using one of the photos from my oldest daughters senior photo shoot!! Thanks Breanna!!
 
This kit features Kaisercrafts beautiful Ohh La La Collection along with some gorgeousness from Prima as well as some color bloom spray and stencils!
 
I had a lot of fun creating with this kit!
 
As you can see with the layout above, I layered and distressed the papers before adding some texture and dimension with the color bloom spray, stencils and texture paste as well as some distress inks and stamps!!
 
 
 
 
I painted one of the Prima chipboard with distress crackle paint and then adhered one of the stickers to it
 
 
 
 
With the Prima flower clusters I used the dark brown paper from the collection to punch out some leaves. I gave them a quick and messy coat of gesso and traced the outer edges with my white gel pen
 
 
 
To finish off my layout, I gave everything a whitewash with gesso to tone down and mute the colors
 
 
 
Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed my layout and are inspired to create as well!!

My CReative Scrapbook January Limted Edition Kit Tututorial

 
 
Hello everyone!!
Today, I have an easy technique tutorial to share with you all today using the My Creative Scrapbook  January 2017 Limited Edition Kit.


I'm going to show you all how to white wash your projects. It happens to be one of my favorite go to techniques and you will see this in just about every single one of my projects, whether it's a layout, card, tag or some other type of project! White washing tends to give your projects a toned down, soft, cohesive look, and can definitely give some added texture!
Lets get started!!
 
You will need:
white gesso of your preference (I prefer heavy gesso)
 paint brush
something to squeeze your gesso onto if your not accustomed to squeezing it directly onto your paint brush (I just used some flower packaging)
 
 
 
**note: something I forgot to add in my photo of supplies needed is the larger brush I use, which is actually not a paint brush at all but a cheap make up brush. the tip is so thick and soft and I have found this to work best on large areas as well as when covering a large background space, such as a layout.
 
 
 
 
STEP 1:
 
Once your project is complete and the glue is dried you can apply a white wash to it. You begin by squeezing a small amount of gesso onto something disposable or washable such as a paint tray. If this is your first time working with gesso you might want to start with a smaller amount on your brush until you are comfortable with applying it to your project and have a feel for the amount you need for the look you are wanting to achieve. There is no set rule to how much or how little you can apply to your project, it's all about how dark the items you are covering are as well as how toned down you want the project to look. To apply it to your project you just start lightly applying and randomly spreading the gesso over the things you'd like covered, You can apply gesso to just about anything on your project, it is not limited to paper and flowers, I have even applied it to ribbon and trim to tone them down and blend them in.  I personally like to start from the inside out, but however you work is up to you. Keep in mind while doing this that the coverage does not have to be full but instead random....this gives it a textured, distressed look and feel.

Gesso completely applied to leaves and flowers

finished applying gesso, my project now is now white washed!!


 
 
The nice thing about gesso is you really can't mess your project up, as it blends in so nicey if you just smooth out anything you don[t like with your paint brush or finger. The biggest tip I have to offer is don't be scared of mixed media supplies, they are really less daunting than they might seem. The best way to get started is just to give them a try, try different techniques on a scrap paper and supplies and see what does and does not work for you, you might be surprised!
 
Like I said, this white washing is a super easy technique, anyone can do it and with so little effort it can really transform your projects!
 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope this was helpful and you are inspired to create your own masterpiece!
