Friday, January 24, 2014 and Basic Grey

Hello Creatives... 

I have a quick tutorial for you using a great Bundle from Basic Grey, Kneehighs and Bowties. I love this kit, Everything about it.
Here is what you will need:

  • Artistcellar Flower of Life and TEXTures 2 Stencils
  • White Card Stock
  • Tag
  • Dylusions Ink Sprays
  • Pitt Pens
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scrapbooking kit  (I am using Basic Grey Bow Ties)
  • Adhesive
Step 1:
Get some color on that white card stock..... I sprayed through the stencil and then flipped it over to get a reversed image. I love how the two colors blend in the center. Do the same with the tag.

 Step 2:
I love the all in one bundles that you can buy at stores. They have everything that you could want in one shot. This is where I start to stage out the image and the items from the bundle that I know I want to use.
Step 3:
Add more to the spaces. I like using 3's in my work, whatever I create will have a variation of three. I like doing this so that my eye will move around the page and look at every detail. I do not start to adhere the bits until I am sure where they will permanently live on the page.

You can see in the above image that I outlined a rectangle for the journaling spot. It is good to see this as you are laying out the bits.

Step 4:
Enjoy your family photos with a whole lot of color.

Thank you for stopping by to see our creations.
Be well-
