Today I am featuring three pages we are doing in my Scrapbooking Class this week, the ladies have a choice of whatever one they would like or do their own design. I am teaching different ways to use Texture Paste. We are starting off by making our own Homemade Texture Paste by Gabrielle Polacco. It is a beautiful smooth and easy to use paste, great for beginners. For this particular page I added Gold Craft Paint instead of White Craft Paint. I saw this particular design on Pinterest and decided to do a similar page to the one I was looking at. I applied the texture paste using stencils and then while still wet, sprinkled over the wet paste Gold Glitter. I added a gold flower I had in my stash and embossed the stamp "Just so you know, I think you're Perfect" with Gold Embossing Powder. It is a very simple page, but looks so pretty with the Glitter.
My second page I did, I used my Brick Wall Stencil. I added Kaisercraft Mocha Paint when making my texture paste. When dry I then roughly coloured bricks with Distress Ink - Vintage Photo. Then with my finger rubbed over each brick with Gold Perfect Pearls. I wanted to put something on the wall, then decided to use my Ivy Die and some dark green cardstock, and hang it down from the top of the wall. Being a little girl photo I added some flowers to the Ivy to brighten the page.
ONE OF A KIND
My third display page is done using the Kaisercraft Die - Butterflies. I applied the white texture paste to my white cardstock and then when dry sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst -Cotton Candy Pink. The Chipboard Circle is from Blue Fern Studios. I painted the Chipboard white and then added pink glitter randomly over the chipboard. It is a simple page but effective, I have two beginners starting on Saturday and thought this page would be an easy one for them to do.
I did these three backgrounds then put them under a heavy book for a couple of days and when I removed them the cardstock was nice and even again. Thank you for taking the time to look at my pages and I hope you enjoy your time on Scrappy Hollow. I have posted Gabrielle Polaccos recipe for the Homemade Texture Paste on my blog but for anyone who wants to try it out here it is again.
