Lovely – Belinda Spencer

Hi all!

It’s Belinda here with you today to share my layout based on the Week 20 Sketch.
I started this layout with a stunning background paper from the Simple Stories Vintage Botanicals collection. I added a pretty was of Jane Davenport Inkredible Ink in blue and a few splashes too.

I painted the Decorative Frame # 5 with about 3 coats of heavy white gesso. Once dry I stapled it to my layout in a few places that I knew would be hidden by the other layers. I love how quick and easy it is to staple my chipboard frames on rather than add messy glue. I usually end up with glue everywhere so a long arm stapler is my best friend!

Next I added on my layers of patterned paper based on the sketch as well as my photos. I only add tape and/or 3D foam in the centre of my layers so that I can slip things in and around the edges as I think of them. There is always some last minute thing that I find on my desk that I just have to add!

I painted the leaves the same as the frame and slipped those in with a cluster of pretty Dusty blooms. I love to add a sweet Mini Heart Button in my cluster so I painted that the same as the leaves and frame and added that too. I also painted the Mini Her with the gesso but then added a lovely metallic pink Posca Paint Pen on top.

The title was painted the same as the Mini Her.

The Dusty Attic products used:
