Forever Friend layout with Julia Kissel

Hello dear friends!

This time for my Lindy’s post  I have created one of my favorite forms in scrapbooking, a layout.  The photo is of my husband in his childhood time together with his friends.  They all have grown up, but are still friends.  I really wanted to complement the landscape on the photo using various scrap materials, so I got a picture of a country house on the web and compiled with a house on the photo.

Once I had a base I constructed a fence using some wooden sticks…  Added some dried flowers from a summer herbarium, embellishments, stamps, mix in a few of my favorite amazing Lindy’s products and the magic begins!

Used for the background: Caribbean Blue Flat SprayCattail Copper Brown Shimmer SprayEdelweiss Moss Green Shimmer Spray

Chipboard decorated with Squirts inks: Emerald Eh?! Maple Syrup BronzeCanadian Bacon Blush

Embossing powder  Midnight Bronze

You can watch my “Step by step” video tutorial below and see how I colored each item.

Basic Process

  1.  Cover paper with any gel gloss or clear gesso for spraying base. Used here clear transparent gel.
  2. Glue dry flowers on the same gel.
  3. Put “dragonfly” and “butterfly” stamps with clear ink for embossing and bake with Midnight Bronze powder.
  4. Make the “grass” and “ground” background using Cattail Copper Brown Shimmer Spray, Edelweiss Moss Green Shimmer Spray. And  Caribbean Blue Flat Spray is for sky.
  5. Apply any texture paste or gesso on the chipboard and then the squirts: Emerald Eh?!, Maple Syrup Bronze, Canadian Bacon Blush
  6. Select various embellishments for the composition and glue them.
  7. Use Sidewalk Chalk Flat Spray as a final touch. Slightly muffle the colors on the page and put some drops.
