Until then, I will share this latest layout with you. I have really been getting into templates, misting and gesso as you saw in my gesso & butterflies post below. For this layout I used a template from Studio Calico. It is a thinner template, so the gesso kind of spread underneath the template in places. It was probably more because of how I applied it...too thick maybe?! Anyway, I still like how it turned out. I started with a piece of white cardstock and added the gesso. I let this dry overnight and then played with it the next day adding color with some Distress Stains and Glimmer Mist.
On these next 2 images you can see how the gesso spread under the template. I think it still looks OK though. If you have any suggestions on how to avoid this next time, it would be greatly appreciated!
And how about using those little strips on the end of the paper. I love those things!!! And I am in LOVE with The Sweetest Thing collection by My Minds Eye! This past weekend I was able to buy more of it!!!
This is another one of the butterflies I made thanks to a little inspiration from my new friend Tracey! If you want another cool butterfly idea you must check out her latest post. I know I will be trying this on my next play session!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
