Coffee Layout for April with Caroline

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 😛 ) … 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. IMG_2901 (1)

Once all my inks dry, I when over the composition with a stamp and Purely white embossing powder.

Let’s look closer at the final results!

The gears and the lock where sprayed with Medieval gold glitz, Cocoa Bean copper and Poinciana red flame starbursts sprays.
