It’s Mabel here today and I am sharing with you my final layout I designed for Kaisercraft using the gorgeous Gypsy Rose collection.
The past 1 year had been hectic but oh-so-fruitful. I managed to snap up a job after my graduation and to design for Kaisercraft all at the same period of time! I must thank Kaisercraft for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity and I am sad to bid goodbye.
Sad words aside, I am pretty sure you had seen other designers scrapping with this gorgeous collection. I am in love with the colour scheme and this is a perfect example of girly rustic theme.
I first started out with P2574 Quirky and reverse side of P2568 Inspiring. I thought that the contrast brought out was pretty.
After which, I layered reverse side of P2573 Thatching. The purpose is to create intersect lines so as to capture viewers’ attention.
To create more effects, I had used IP725 Petal Pink inkpad as my stamping ink on my layout base as Inspiring is dark coloured. I will need to select light pastel base ink in order for my stamping to show.
As I don’t require precise stamping, I would tend to prefer inking my stamp directly instead of pulling them from their plastic sheet. It does save me the convenience of looking for my acrylic stamping pad.
After I am satisfied with the result, I went ahead to cut my photo mat to a size slightly bigger than my photo. I had used the reverse side of Quirky.
To add some special texture to my layout, I decided to layer cheesecloth under my photo mat.
The trick to using cheesecloth would be to cut them into your desired size, and gently pull them apart so as to create a more natural effect.
Generally, the structure of my layout is completed! After adhering embellishments, my layout would be officially completed.
Ta-da! Here are some close up shots.
