Pink LO


Here it is my participation on CGS Scrapbooking Club’s DT.


I’ve been envited  to participate as part of the DT with three projects, here it is my first one:

If you would like to scraplift my project …it would be an honor! Here it is the sketch so it is easier for you to follow  😉

The very first thing I do when designing a LO that takes a picture, I put the papers I’m going to use together with the picture, so I can look for the best pallette to work with.

Layout step by step:

First I cut different polygon shapes so that they cover the background paper but not completely.


Then I distressed the edges with a cutter


I wanted to give a special effect to each shape, so I used this cute little tool that it is used in sewing.


I gave it a completely new function in scrapbooking, I used it as a circular stamp. I first rolled it on the stamp pad and then on the paper leaving this nice effect:


Another beautiful detail I added to the polygons was texture. I used gesso and a small doily as a stencil.


Then I put all elements together with the embellishments without gluing them yet, so I move evrything around looking for balance, playing a little, until I get the look and feel I want to give my LO.
