"Catch of the Day" Step by step scrapbook layout by Louise

Hi Crafters

I'm sharing a step by step for the creation of my layout "Catch of the Day"

One of my challenges to myself in 2018 is to use my stash.
So I go to the back of my paper collections and must create something, using those papers.
Today it's an older collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.


Firstly I chose a chipboard piece ...
the Catch of the day word is perfect for my fishing mad family!

I started with a white 12x12 cardstock background and then did some paper tearing - it's one of my favourite ways to add interest and texture.

Next, I covered my chipboard piece in white heavy gesso.
I also played around with placement and background elements - using the papers as inspiration for the triangle pieces.

I then adhered everything down and added some background stamping.

Using the collection as inspiration I added Colour Blast Shimmer Cube in "Deep Water" to the stamped circles with a few little splatters too.

To coordinate my chipboard I used Distress Crayons to achieve the desired colour.

I added a little bit of black around the chipboard title and added foam squares to the back, to help it lift off the page.

I generally add my journalling last - even if it's just a date or year - so that I know where the photo will fit in an album (when I eventually get around to putting them away LOL).

Here is the finished layout.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
