I thought that for today's post I would show you how I 'build up' a layout using my favourite technique of masking using spray inks. And it's a great way of using the same piece of Buzz and Bloom product more than once, getting more mileage out of your scrap dollars.
I started with a piece of kraft cardstock that I'd used previously as a backdrop for my project earlier this month. When I sprayed the Round Corner Flourish a couple of weeks ago I just made sure I placed them in the corners of the cardstock as I thought I would be a better placement for design if/when I decided to use that cardstock later on.
Using that piece of cardstock I decided to add to the masked off designs and grabbed a piece of the Areboretum: Up the Garden Path that I placed in the opposite corners and lightly sprayed it with glimmer mist. (that piece is likely to show up on another project soon)
I then roughly cut up some squares from left over bit of patterned paper and grouped them on the background. Using the sewing machine the squares were sewn to the background with yellow thread.
Then it was a matter of adding the photos and embellishments. I used a some Buzz and Bloom alphas for my title and the Pointers: Wiggly Worms to draw attention to it. Added a few strips of masking tape that I'd tinted with ink to match (as I'd bought a cheap horrible yellow roll) for my journaling and the layout was done.
(don't know what's happened to the colours in this post. they look more subdued and dull here on typepad than they do on my computer screen?)
