Step by Step Layout Tutorial by Lynn Shaffer

Lynn Shaffer is featuring our January Creative Kit today with a step by step layout tutorial!


Today I am sharing my process for creating my family layout. 

Using a stencil I applied light molding paste to a stencil and let try. I cut squares out of the pattern/saying paper. 

I then painted these squares with white Gesso, and glued them to the page. 

I then took a gelato and my dylusion spray and with a water brush defined my squares.

I then folded my ribbon using my hot glue gun.

Once complete the ribbon should look like the below. 

I then removed the top of my Prima Bloom spray and splashed a few dots here and there. 

I then inked and distressed my matt pieces. I scored my paper to give it the corrugated effect. 

Distressed my photo matt to give a bit of a texture look. 

I then began to cluster my stickers behind my photo. To maximize my embellishments I cut them in half.

I like to have embellishments poke out of the sides of my picture. 


Here are some of my other layouts created with this fabulous kit.
