Today, I'm sharing how to create your own textured background using wrapping tissue and Glimmer Glam in a short tutorial! :) My model for today is my friend Maggi's daughter Zippy! :)
Step 1: Compose your layout and elements. I "guesstimated" the rough area I needed to work on...no sense working on areas that would be covered up by papers or embellies.
Step 2: Apply liquid adhesive to the cardstock.
Step 3 : Add some wrapping tissue, scrunching the tissue as you adhere to the cardstock.
Step 4: You should get something like this. The glue dries clear. You can speed up the process with a heat gun.
Step 5: Paint a layer of gesso.
Step 6: Apply distress inks in blues and greens (to match the patterned paper).
Step 7: Paint on the Glimmer Glam (Midnight). Love the big sparkly glitter bits.
Supplies: (from Your Scrapbook Stash) Webster's Pages papers and trims, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Midnight, Others: American Crafts stickers, SRM sticker, metal butterfly embellishments.
