June BAP Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! It is my turn to do a Build a Page Tutorial at the Flying Unicorn. I have used the Almanac Collection from the Flying Unicorn store and I had to incorporate a technique into the BAP so mine is masking with gesso.

 Step one:

Trim about 1/3 inch off two sides of main back ground paper and distress edges. Distress edges on Black 12x12 cardstock to use behind this piece.

 Step two:

Take a mask, paint brush and gesso. Paint the gesso onto the mask down the left side, the bottom and top right corner. Wash your brush and mask right away, as gesso dries quickly. You can either let the masking air dry or use a heat tool to dry it.

 Here is the finished background with masking.

Step three:

Take some strips of coordinating papers. Make them different sizes, this is a good time to use up scraps.

Cut a triangle out of the end on each one and ink them.

 Step four:

I now start to lay things out on my layout, trying them in different places. I have also fussy cut out a couple of tags from the Almanac papers and used a doily and Prima note card behind the photo.

 Step five:

Once I like where everything is places I start to use adhesive and pop ups to put them in place. This is the layout so far. It has lots of dimension because I have used pop ups under the tags.

 Step six:

Take some matching flowers and embellishments and lay them out on the layout.

 Step seven:

Glue the flowers in place. Add some punched butterflies from the scrap papers. Add some liquid pearls to finish it off.

 Thanks for following along with me as I created this layout of my grand daughter using Prima Almanac paper and flowers all from the FlyingUnicorn store.

I hope that you all have a fantastic week! Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
