LYNN -    (you are here) 

Here are some process photos and close ups:

I began with a 12x12 chipboard panel and placed torn up pieces of book paper and dictionary paper.  I then applied White Crackle paste around the layout in different thicknesses to provide texture.  Once the crackle was completely dry, I coloured with gelatoes - Bubblegum and sprayed with water.  I then got a wet wipe and rubbed around the layout so the colour went into the cracks.  I continued with this until I got the desired result.

On the bottom third of the layout I applied the Finnabair paint - Wild Fushsia and Vintage Rose, as well as splatters of both and gesso.

Once all was dried I compiled the layout using the Wild at Heart Collectables, flairs, frames and Wood Veneers.

I covered the hearts with the Finnabair paint - Wild Fuchsia and the title with the Vintage Rose.

Keep applying the gelatoes until you get the desired colour.

Kaisercraft Marble Stamp was applied with black ink around the photo layout area.

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to keep blog hopping :)
