Just Chillin *TCR*

Happy Sunday everyone! Well I have had a huge injury that I have had to deal with now for a week..I threw both hips out moving a picnic table..GRRR. BUT I am finally starting to feel better so I was able to do a bit of scrapping this weekend J I made this layout using this week’s palette at TCR. I did some masking with gesso, then the brick mask over top of it with inks. The photo is my son and grand daughter..just chillin! I have used some of the new BoBunny and Prima papers for this layout.


In this close up you can see the masking done with gesso. I used a script mask and just applied the gesso to it, and under the photo is a gate mask done the same. When it dries it leaves a raised impression on the paper. I then used a brick mask with inks on top of the scripted areas. The butterflies are punched from some of my dad’s old piano music and the flowers and swirl are from ZVA Creative. I made the pink and white flowers to coordinate with the palette and tucked them in. You can see on the photo that I have used a scrapper around the edges of it.

In this corner there is more flowers and swirls and of the Dusty Attic leaves. I first painted the leaves white, than applied a few different glimmer mists to get the right colors. I have tucked in pieces of a doily in sections as well.

Close up of the title section and I tucked in another piece of DA border and one of all the layers and distressing.


Ok well that is it for today. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week. I will be back on Tuesday with our October kit sneak peeks from Scrap That!
