Today's post on the BlueMoon DT Blog has a fun and easy tutorial on layering with transparencies. This is 1 of 4 layouts using the new fall kit, Flea Market Finds.
Using a couple steps, this is easy to achieve. First I inked the edges of an 8.5 x 8.5 white piece of cardstock.
Stitched it the center of my 12x12 paper, which is the Jillibean script paper. A nice neutral background to let the leaves take center stage on the layout.
The I stitched the 12x12 transparency over the entire layout.
Here's a good example of all the layers and texture on the layout.
This is a picture of the mounted photo, without mounting it, it just gets "lost" on the paper with all the leaves from my photo and the transparency. This is a good way to break it up.
This is one of the 7 gypsies stickers embellished a bit more. I mounted it on pattern paper, distressed the edges, used a pop-dot to bulk it up abit and embellished with with the Prima leaves, which are included in the kit.
The flower was a bit big for my page, I tore off some of the layers (which I use in another layout soon). Adding stickles are is a nice way of adding texture and sparkle, just dab them on each petal.
So, there you have it. I fun way to use your transparency.
Thanks for stopping by on this Monday. I hope you are all having a wonderful day.
