Friendship Layout by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

 

I'm Priya Mishra and am very excited to share my first DT inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I have created a project as an inspiration for our Rainbow Friendship Challenge.
 

Here's what I made...





The theme is absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make something CAS this time. This has been my weakness and I struggle to leave white space with pastel shades. So this was a challenge I took up!

The base is a 12"*12" white cardstock. As the theme is Friendship, I took the photo and the sentiment from google and printed them. For my layout, I began by brushing multi medium onto the whole paper. This creates a very good base. Then, I created texture using a stencil (Bubbles all over) and texture paste. Next, I began adding colour. I used Distress Inks and a brush to spread the colours. I have incorporated all the colours of Rainbow. The chippies are from Papericious and are brushed with a thick coat of white gesso. After arranging the photo and sentiment on the base I added some butterflies, flowers and a few sequins. I layered a doily under the photo mat. I finished it by sprinkling a few drops of colours with a brush.Here are a few close ups of the layout
















Supplies Used:

  • 12"*12" White Cardstock 200gsm
  • Rangers Multi Medium Matte
  • Stamploration "Bubbles All over" Stencil

  • Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pink Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Mowed lawn, Mustard seed, Cracked Pistachio)

Layout Tutorial By Guest DT Halak

Hello Lovely Crafters,

A very lovely Welcome and a warm Good Morning in this cold winter.

Today in our Teaching and Learning Program we have aour Guest DT Halak Shah with a lovely Layout which she made with one paper pack. Sit back and enjoy the tutorial.

Over to you Halak,

Hello and good morning dear friends!
I'm Halak and today I have this layout to share with you.
 

Before we begin, let me list out the basic materials :

Paper Pack - Ephemera by Papericious

Round Ink Blending Tool by Papericious

Stencils :

1. Art Is - TCW
2. Labyrinth - TCW
3. Stylish Borders - Hero Arts
4. Rhapsody - Memory Box
5. Andy Skinner
Distress Inks :
Primarily used Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberries
Red striped washi tape and
Polka dotted washi tape
Inkadinkado alphabets and numbers cling stamp
Brads by Kaisercraft
A 1" circle paper punch (I've used the one by EK Success)
And lastly,
Pink beads + Sequins.

Tip: If you do not have beads, you can opt for different sized sequins too! Alternatively, micro beads / seed beads and glitter will also look fabulous!)

Okay, so, layouts... what are they? Something on the lines of a journal, layouts are meant to add an image and jot down something, (a line or two max) about that image... capture a memory and freeze it in time...

While journals can be highly personal, layouts are primarily created to be displayed. They can be framed or bound in a book, the choice is yours!

Here's a fun close up!

My layout is a 12" x 12" piece intended for framing.

Let's get started!
The first thing I did was open the paper pack and fussy-cut some elements to use as embellishments.


After that I went through the sheets and cut out some sentiments + punched out some circles using the paper punch.

Took the Andy Skinner + Hero Arts stencil and slowly started building up layers.



Why stencils?
Stencils are a great investment, because unlike embellishments, you can use the same stencils over and over again. They help give the illusion of layers and add interest to a project without actually adding bulk to paper so it makes your project look good without the added weight! Win-win!

Next, I took Labyrinth and Rhapsody stencils and added more patterns to the paper.


Tip: If you want a dimensional look, you can use modeling paste with fun ink sprays / acrylic paints!

After this, I took some alpa and number stamps by inkadinkado and lightly stamped them in the background.
At this point, I was quite happy with the way the background looked so I decided to stack up my embellishments + accessories to ascertain positioning.
 


Tip: I always roughly position where I'd like to place my embellishments / accessories and click a picture to make note of it. I move around the pieces a couple of times, click pics and then pick the one I like best. It's always a good idea to plan where the embellishments and accessories go before you glue / tape them in place.

The next step was to adhere everything in it's place.
Once that was done I took a big white brad which had a lovely flower design on it and added it to my project. Also added an additional big butterfly die-cut.
Finished it off with some stenciling + added washi tape bits and adhered the beads and sequins!
I absolutely love that floral arrangement decked with beads! Here's another close-up :



But wait! If you think that was all then I have Surprise for you all
As a bonus, Here's a card I made with a very detailed coloring tutorial.

Materials used :

1. Altenew - Wild Hibiscus stamp set

2. Poppy Stamp Die - Hello Word Balloon
3. Big Shot or any other compatible die-cutting machine
4. Staedtler Luna Coloring Pencils (Set of 24)
5. Ranger Archival Ink - Black
6. Cardstock
7. Cotton swabs
8. Baker's twine (black)
9. Paint brush (I used size 0 brush)
10. And lastly, some embellishments like sequins and rhinestones
 

The first thing I did was stamp the flowers with the butterfly onto white cardstock using my favorite, archival ink by Ranger.


I also took my hello word balloon die and die-cut the sentiment I wanted to use in black cardstock.


Next I took the color pencils and colored the images.
Here you can see my quick coloring.


I took the brush and with a little water, smoothed the pencil lines. That led to this subtle water colored look.


At this point I did like how the colors blended but they were a tad too light for me. So I decided to intensify the colors a little.

Check out the image below, the flower on the bottom left is the one where I began working. The first 5 petals when you compare with the previous image, you will notice that the colors have intensified.


To achieve this all I did was color a little over the petals using the same color pencils and then smooth it using a cotton swab!
I repeated the exact same process on the other flower and the butterfly after which the image looked like this.


I only wanted the sentiment minus the bubble so I trimmed it and adhered, matted the whole thing onto navy blue cardstock, added some twine and adhered embellishments to finish it off!
Here's the finished card.


What I absolutely love about the project is the coloring bit! So how could I end this post without a close up?! ^__^ Here you go.

That brings us to an end of this post dear friends! I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and it helped you learn something new.
A special thank you to Team Rainbow Craftykari for once again giving me the opportunity to share my papercrafting experience.
Till next time! *Big Panda Hugs*
