#love You

By Jcchris
Hello there! Els Bridge invited me to be one of her guest weekend at her blog. Be sure to drop by her blog to read more about me! 
So today I would like to share with you a simple tutorial on how I created the background for my layout. 
#love youFor this layout, I used Maggie Holmes Flea Market 12x12 patterned paper called Tag Sale.      photo 58ec29f8-3093-4549-9680-f41523cc6e67_zpsc7b5078b.jpg
Scrappy info: 
1. First, I cut out some of the tags from the patterned paper. 
2. Then, I randomly positioned them on a piece of white cardstock. I also decided to layer a few pieces of vellum just to tone down the colours in order to have a subtle look. 
3. Adhered all the pieces down. I also sewed only on the vellum pieces. 
4. Once that is done, I used a wet wipe to dip into my gesso bottle. Gently dabbed the gesso onto the patterned paper & the vellum as well. 
5. Lastly, I sprayed some mint green mist at the corners of the cardstock. And finished the look with some gold & navy blue mist splatters to create an arty look.
