Well today I have a layout over on the BoBunny blog , showing you how to use stamping in your layouts. For this particular layout I used the new Enchanted Garden collection and lots and lots of blooms..
So if you would like to take a peek at my process scroll down below..
I did forget to take more pictures of the process, but you will get the idea :) I am working on trying to get videos of my process to you real soon..
I firstly gathered up some supplies that I thought I would use and took my inspiration from here first..
This is a picture of my
I then wanted to incorporate pops of colour to the back ground , so I cut different pieces of scraps from the Enchanted Garden collection and adhered them randomly to the back ground .
I then gathered my gesso and foam paint brush. I find using the foam brush gives me more even control, and spreads the gesso thinner than using just a pint brush. I also pulled out dome matching paint and will use that a little later on.
As you can see I have lightly painted the background with some gesso and even added some book paper that came in the ephemera pack. I simply used Modge Podge to adhere that down.
Then it's time to add some stamps to the back ground . I used 4 different coloured ink pads to help create a little dimension in some parts. I then decided to add my blossoms now at this step, as I was starting to over up my stamp work. So after adding the blossoms I then went around the page again adding more stamp details.
I then added some ink splatters around the page, and then I also added some stamp images of paint splatters for more controlled "splatters" around my blossoms.
This is the time I also added in the gorgeous pearl accents!
I then really didn't like the dark splatter in the top left corner of the page, so I decided to cover it up with some blossoms.. I then also added a little cluster to the bottom right of the page, to even the page out. I also at this time grabbed my purple paint and old credit card and smeared some of the paint to the layout.
As I love colour, the brighter the better, I wanted to add something a little more to this layout. So I added just two yellow petals from the blossoms range too two parts of the page and I love how it adds a little more interest.
Thanks so much for taking a peek into a little of my process. I am hoping to bring you more very soon and am trying hard to master the art of video recording.. If you would like to know which products I have used then be sure to head on over to the BoBunny site.
