Hi Rikki, here!!! Hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day.
I am here with another layout hopefully that will inspire you to get messy. This layout is also perfect for those little strips of paper you always seem to have lying around and if your like me you don't want to throw them out but then you feel guilty hoarding little bits.... Well feel guilty no more!!! I am going to show you how to use all the left over bits.
I am sure you are asking where the left overs are? They have been used to make my background. Just cut your strips down glue them randomly over each other once you have your pattern , allow to dry.
Then with a spatula or plastic card just swipe the area with some Derivan Gesso make it as random and as thick as you like, allow that to dry.
Then with any of your mists I have used Heidi Swapp Colour Shine just paint around the edges of the strips of paper.... then with a spray bottle of water, like the Mini Spritz bottles diffuse the mist. Allow that to dry.
And that is how you use your scrap stash.
Now your ready to create your background you can turn it into a layout don't forget random bits of washi (I find the raw, natural colours work really well). Also why not give your layout a feature with a stunning Manorhouse Flower or two.
