Hi everyone and welcome to this months Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop hosted by Practical Scrappers! You should have arrived here from Lee-Anne's blog if not check it out here. It's that time of the month where you dig into your stash of scrapbooking supplies! This month for my layout, I used Basic Grey's Hipster and Carte Postale lines. I had a lot of fun with this and gave it a mixed-media twist. I can hardly believe my son is 22 now :)
My base sheet was from the Hipster collection. I started by adding Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste with stencils to add some texture. After that was good and dry I brushed some gesso over my page concentrating on especially where the embossing paste was placed.
After my gesso dried I added color with some Mr. Huey's - Desert and some watercolors. I used some vintage books papers and prints from the Carte Postale line. I shaded all my paper pieces with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool. I distressed my paper edges with a bone folder.
I added a little background interest with just some sewing thread.
I used Studio Calico Wood Veners and Thickers.
