SMILE AND BE HAPPY with how to BUILD A PAGE


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.
Today I have a BUILD A PAGE for you so you can see how to put this page together.
I have used COLOR STORIES INSPIRATION #104 for my inspiration.
This one was a real challenge for me that's why I decided to do it as there is no way I would normally use all these bright colours together!

and Sketchabilities #106 for my design - http://sketchabilities.blogspot.co.uk/
AND HERE IS HOW
STEP 1
I forgot to take the first couple of photos but this is what I did.
Take a sheet of white cardstock and paint all over with Gesso. When dry take a mask and some texture paste and mask all over the card.

 STEP 2
When dry, take some mists and mist all over the page then use a sponge or kitchen towel to  blend out the edges. I also used some blue paint around the edge. When dry rip the page down a little.
Adhere to a 12x12 sheet of white card.
 STEP 3
Take some corrugated cardboard and paint it using white paint then rip around the edges to the required size.
 STEP 4
When dry, add a couple of ripped borders of corrugated card.
 STEP 5
Add matted photo
STEP 6
Start adding layers.

 STEP 7
Add two borders of lace top and bottom.
 STEP 8
Add title.
STEP 9
Decorate with flowers and embellies.

 
 
STEP 10
Don't forget the journaling. I made a couple of changes at the end with the lace border at the top and adding a little black bird. And I added some doodling to the top and bottom of page as per sketch.
