Scrapbook Creations Farewell Edition

Issue 95 of Scrapbook Creations is now available and this is my final contribution as a Design Diva.

In this issue I was given a STAMPING challenge and had some lovely wood-mounted stamps by Inkadinkadoo to play with along with K&Co papers which are a nice heavy weight; perfect for mixed media and other wet media play.

I wanted to do something different to simply stamping the image onto the layout.

Firstly I swiped the patterned paper with gesso and when it was dry enough took the larger stamp and added another layer of the botanical theme.
It kinda looked boring so grabbed the smaller flower stamp and some red StazOn to create a border around the photo, using a plain paper mask to indicate where the photo would go. I found the more you layered the stamping from a very wet stamp, to an almost dry stamp, the more interesting it got.
You could also use this technique in reverse, applying the layering to the corner of a greeting card or journaling card. Just remember to spin the image a little to get variation.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with these girls and especially Casey Ioannou who is one patient and understanding Editor! I’ll miss the regularity of work and the deadlines (I do love an end-date!); seeing my mug-shot every issue and all the freebies; B-U-T in the spirit of the “end-date” I felt it was my time to hand my tiara to another talented gal, worthy of the Diva title…and there are soooo many out there. There is fantastic new talent emerging, and I am envious of their seemingly effortless ability to throw it all together!

I wish Casey and the SC staff continued success. I believe there are some changes in the pipeline…..which I am now no longer privy to {{insert grumpy face}}….so we shall all have to wait and see.
