This week we are creating with paper quilting over at Cuttin' and Stampin'. I am sharing a layout I did with some FUN pictures of my nieces. :)
We are using Studio Calico Lemon Lush collection which you can find at the Cuttin' and Stampin' facebook store.
I did a lot of background layering with paper, gesso, distress paint and mists. The paper was cut into squares and sewn on to the base with my sewing machine. I painted gesso to mute the colors slightly and applied paint with a mask.
Here is the finished layout.
I struggled with how to embellish my layout for a while and then it hit me...ROSETTES!!
The rosette centers are UmWow Studio chip, layered hearts, that I covered in gesso and distress paint. I doodled on them when they were dry. I love this technique for altering this chip!!
I added plenty of mist splatters after I had everything adhered. I love how it pulls all of the colors together.
You still have a couple of days to get your project with some kind of paper quilting linked up on our challenge blog. I can't wait to see what you create!
