Layout Design Process by Lynn Shaffer

Lynn Shaffer is featuring our December Main Kit today with a look into her design process!


Hello Friends, 
Today I am sharing how I built my Joy layout. I will focus on the back details.

I have to admit I am a paper hoarder! I love paper so I try to use it to the max. Using a piece of kraft cardstock I create a 10x10 square in the middle of my cardstock. I then cut out the center piece out. The 10x10 square will be used to matt my picture and use the remaining for background layers. The outside square will be later painted gold to change things up. I cut my pattern paper down to 11x11 and misted the edges with water. Once my paper is a little damp I crinkle the edges. 

While my edges dry I then apply a little modeling medium and some fun sparkles. Let dry. I then cut stars out from various left overs of pattern paper from the kit. I painted the edges gold. I randomly dabbled gold paint around the edges of where my gel medium was. 

Using texture paste added a few white stars. 
Then added the various layers and voila we are done!

Here are a few more of my layouts
