Crate Paper Design Team : Lovely

By Jcchris
I don't always get my creative mojo immediately. At times, I have to sit on my scrapping desk and just play around. Arranging the embellishments or matching papers will somehow spark some kind of creativity. Placing certain products that I would like to work with will definitely help as well. 

As I was going through the Chasing Dreams collection, this triangle patterned paper captured my attention. I knew it would be perfect as background for my layout against some bright colours. And that was my starting point. Let me share with you my creative process... First, use a plastic card and dip into the gesso. Spread it all around the patterned paper. I wanted to give a little subtle look to the background. Crate Paper Design Team : LovelyOnce the gesso is dried, adhere a few doilies. That gave a softer look to the bold background. Crate Paper Design Team : LovelyNext, I arranged the fussy-cut butterflies onto my layout randomly. As I went along, I rearranged the sizes to make the whole layout balanced. Once that is done, I added other elements like stickers to enhance my layout. Crate Paper Design Team : Lovely
I wanted to create more texture to my layout and decided to stitch the middle section of the butterflies. Crate Paper Design Team : LovelyTo add more dimension to the butterflies, I added foam dots to the back of the wings. Absolutely love the 3d look on the butterflies. Crate Paper Design Team : Lovely
