Stamps + Fun = Creativity Challenge 22/9/14

This weeks challenge at SFC is to create your own background.

I decided to make a scrapbook page using papers from "Nirvana" collection by Marion Smith. I trimmed down the sheet of patterned paper, mounted onto card stock then set to work adding to the background.

  • I used a bronze shimmer spray and Tim Holtz mask for the clock face top right and bottom left hand sides of the page
  • Then when dry, cream paint brushed across the centre of the page from top to bottom. 
  • Sprinkled gilding flakes onto the painted areas while still wet so they stuck!
  • Sprayed a gold glimmer mist over the page
I then added the photo and fussy cut out various elements from another sheet of the paper. A few buttons and its done!
