Hi Lindy’s fans!
Caroline here today to share the step by step tutorial of my Lindy’s April Coffee colored layout. For those who follow me for a while, when you saw the combo you surely said :O Yeah…. I have to admit that I first cried (not literally :P ) … and took my courage because even if earth tones are not my fav at all, I like challenges!
Many talented girls are so good with this palette, no reason to not rock the place too!
Here’s what came up with those, I gotta say it, gorgeous shades!
First of all, I started with clear gesso, this is what you should use as a base for all inked or sprayed layouts if you are working on anything other than watercolor paper. I cut some paper scraps into strips and glued them randomly onto my background. With a palette knife, I put a thin coat of white gesso here and there.
Then I grabbed some texture paste and sprinkled magical shaker Bratwurst brown over it – mix well to create a bold brown paste.
Once my stencil design was completely dry, I took a brush and my sprays to start coloring. Here you can see the great Incandescent copper Moon shadow mist. I used all the color one at a time here and there.
I made some droplets with the Medieval Gold Glitz spritz. It gives just a tiny sparkle.
Once all my inks dry, I when over the composition with a stamp and Purely white embossing powder.
I’ve embossed my chipboard title with Caesar’s gold.
Let’s look closer at the final results!
So that’s it! Thank you for your time and I hope you’ve enjoyed!
