This month is Scrap Our Stash's birthday month and they are having a month long celebration.
Today today is the first day of challenges. Challenge #1 is: cake/layering. 3 or more layers of paper and/or embellishments.
And here is my entry:
Here is are some close ups:
To create this page I started by gesso-ing my base cardstock. While that was drying I created a heart shaped template from cardstock. I then decided where I wanted the hearts and drew around the template. I then set about sorting some leftovers from a previous project into larger pieces to use later and then the smaller bits I then cut them up into small strips to use. I then created the heart on the left by gluing the strips down in the heart shape, cutting where needed to keep the shape. I also used some Kaiser Craft Collectables mixed in for added interest. I then added a thin layer of gesso over the completed heart. I then worked with three complimentary shades of spray inks to color both hearts until I was happy with how it looked. I then added splatters from all three colors over the page. As this dried I created the cluster of layers under my photo and stuck them all together. I then backed the whole piece in some scrap cardstock to make it more stable, then added rows of foam tape under it to pop it up off the page. I then added it to the page along with my title and journalling.
See you all again soon.
