My creative process for a layout! :)


QVB

Some of you asked me to share my creative process for a layout. Here is a short tutorial using the sketch and inspiration bits from the Sketchy Thursdays GDT challenge. :)

Step 1: I choose the papers I want to use (I usually cut out the back of papers if layers overlap), then add various colours of mist.


Step 2: I prep my photos by matting some of them on cardstock scraps that match the colours of my papers.

Step 3: I adhere the photos on my base papers and start adding embellishments. 


Step 4: I add some handstitching, stamping and titlework.


Step 5: I add my journaling and I'm done! :)

Supplies: Studio Calico add-on kit : Sunny Clearing, Heidi Swapp chipboard, Sharpies, ribbon, trim, Technique Tuesdays and Fontwerks stamps, baker's twine, thread, bling.



P/s: Are you in the running for my giveaway?

*Edited* My layout made Top 5 in the Sketchy Thursdays GDT contest! :)

LOVE IT! Thanks for the tutorial and all the tips. You actually cut out the papers underneath the layers? You would faint if you saw what I do with all my paper scraps.
