Layout Background Technique by Carla Marchee

Here's Carla...

Here's my first layout using the March Limited Edition Kit: Love, Live, Hope

What I have done with this design I will please tell: Let's get started!

Here I have tearing the design paper When you tear toward yourself with the design part of the paper facing you, you will get a course edge that shows the core of the paper. If the core of the paper is white, you get the white edge.

And layering this how you like it.

What I did next: Using the glue with brush, paint a thin coat over the paper, making sure all the edges are stuck down. This will dry clear.
when this is dry. next step:

Now I have just gesso and water    Gesso is like a magic bullet. Seriously. Gesso should be in your craft room….there is no doubt about it! If my Mixed Media
So I get further

1} I did what gesso in a bowl and some water there at.
why because I wanted the pattern paper to show through.

2} And paint with the brush on the page
See picture's

3} Than I have just a color and painted over the page

And this was my background, so I further layered with the design paper and did fussy cutting and finish the page used the Prima packaging and flowers, ribbon.
