Allt Om Scrap Guest!

Hi everyone,

June is almost at an end so this announcement is waaaayyyyyy late: I was a guest designer over at Allt Om Scrap , a Swedish papercrafting blog with inspiration and challenges. When they asked me to be a guest I was so happy answered with a big "yes"!

I made a video tutorial about how I use watercolor paint to make my own layout backgrounds and I participated in their Gold Challenge.

Here's the video:



Here's what that final page looked like:





And here is my page for the Gold Challenge. I decided lots of gold would be more fun than a little here so I went to town with all my gold, glittery products.


The frames and paint strips are from Wilna Furstenburg. Her pages are whimsical, bright, beautiful and she has lots of cool digital designs in her shop. I was excited to come across her products!


I cut everything out on thick, watercolor paper. The paint strips I misted and tapped on mica powders. The large, ornate frame I painted and glittered, and the smaller frames I painted with Twinkling H2Os. 


The "Gold" title is old chipboard that didn't match. I lightly sanded the top, covered with gesso, painted with Tattered Angels High Impact paint, then sprinkled with glitter.


In real life, this page really glimmers and shines!

Thanks for visiting!
