Hi everyone!! It's Tracey here to share a girlie grunge wedding layout with you today. My dear scrapbooking friend, Mandy, was married in June. I enjoyed using Donna's fabulous products to color and accent the page. I share some how to's in my "Tips and Techniques" section below.
Tips and Techniques
I created this "Wispy Burlap Flower" with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Texture Ribbons. A tutorial for these flowers can be found HERE. I created the center by rolling her looped lace from her Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Lace Ribbons pack.
The textured leaves are cut and embossed using Donna's Spellbinders® Bitty Blossoms Dies. I lightly rubbed the edges and raised areas with her Clearsnap®/Colorbox® Stormy Mix'd Media Inx®.
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® DODZ™are super sticky and adhere well to a mixed media background. I've used a variety of sizes from Donna's Dodz™ XL to adhere the larger flowers to the Dodz™ Small to adhere delicate leaves.
Here's a simple technique to give a girlie grunge effect to chipboard pieces. Apply embossing medium to chipboard and "lightly sprinkle" with Clearsnap®/Colorbox® Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder and heat emboss. Be sure to let some of the bare chipboard show through.
I mixed Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® pink and gold pigment powder into light molding paste and used it to stencil a doily image under and next to the photo.
I wanted subtle color behind the clear pebbles, so mixed Donna's pink Pigment Powder into soft gel which also works as an adhesive. I brushed the colored gel onto the back of the pebbles, then placed them onto the page - a great way to add shimmery color!
Thanks for stopping by!
