We've paired up this week to use their awesome kits in conjunction with our awesome chip and flair! Up first on our side this week is... MYSELF! :D I've got a 12x12 to share today:
Viva Las VegaStamps! Striped Border Arrow stamp and Row Of Stars stamp, May Arts Ribbons Box Pleat, Echo Park Paper chalkboard cardstock, Pink Paislee Alphas, Recollections alphas, Ranger Archival ink black, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Studio Calico Mr. Huey, Dymo label maker, black and white gesso, adhesive, gel medium, glitter.
The whole entire premise of this layout is based off this super kick ass tag/envelope that came in the Gauche Alchemy White Mixed Media Kit! The sequins and the sequin butterfly are its brothers in arms! I put some inside and then sewed it shut, making sure there were enough sequins to be seen in the window. Then the layout came to life in my head and I set to work on the background!
I used GA's punchinella as a mask with some white gesso, to get some big gorgeous circles. They ground the two main parts of my layout. On top of the gesso I layered some washi tape, ribbon, gel medium, cheesecloth, seed beads and sequins. The chipboard was altered with gesso, then layered with gel medium and doused in glitter.
I tore the corner of the tag/envelope and let the "stuff dreams are made of" trickle down the page and surround my two sweets. I finished it off with a little dripping, a little doodling, and a little stamping.
