Two amazing layouts – Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic peeps!

Belinda here today to share two layouts I have created for April.

The first layout is based on the April mood board. I loved the fresh colours so much I just had to create another layout with them.
‘You Light Up My Life’

I started by swiping some Sugar Plum Dusty In Colour over my background patterned paper using a silicone brush. I diluted the Sugar Plum as well as Sunburnt Orange and Pesto paints and flicked them over the surface.

I layered patterned papers as well as the stunning Delicate Frame # 3 over the paint swipe. Then I painted the foliage chipboard pieces using the same Dusty In Colour paints. I added in clusters of chipboard foliage and sweet Dusty in Bloom flowers.

I painted the cute Mini Heart Button, Mini Dots and the title using heavy white gesso.

‘Super Karate Kid’

I used the Week 14 Sketch for inspiration for this boy layout. I am loving the fabulous sketches!! They make creating a layout so easy. I kept to a monochromatic colour scheme for this layout to make sure my photos really stood out. I used the Crosshatch Stencil with heavy white gesso to add some interest to the dark grey background patterned paper.

I painted all of the chipboard with three coats of heavy white gesso to maintain the monochromatic look but also give it a crisp white look.

I covered the lightening bolt with co-ordinating patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
