Nobody does a double layout better than Jowilna.
Today we share a stunning one she has created using the new First Noel Christmas collection.
Papers: First Noel Collection – P2613 Wrapped | P2615 Wonderful | P2616 Holy Night | P2618 Hark | P2621 Starry
KC Products:CT946 Collectables | FL364 Flourishes | SS372 Sticker Sheet | Double Sided Tape
Other:Gesso, Gold Leafing
To create the background for your layout, use double sided tape and adhere WRAPPED and HOLY NIGHT together at the back.
Decide the placement of your photo and make small pencil marks.
Use gesso to add some interest to the background by painting a frame around the photo area.
Leave the gesso to dry.
Cut out elements from your patterned papers HARK, WRAPPED, and WONDERFUL.
Ink the edges of the elements to hide any cutting marks.
Use double sided tape and adhere your matted photo 8cm (3 ¼”) from the left edge
and 4.5cm (1 ¾ “) from the bottom of your background.
Use a 5mm and 2cm wide double-sided tape and create a corner using the tape.
Adhere the thinner tape first and then the wider tape to create a corner around the bottom right hand corner of your photo.
Remove the backing from the double-sided tape.
On the sticky taped areas add gold leafing liberally and flatten with your fingers until the entire piece of tape is covered in gold.
Use a soft flat medium sized paint brush and remove brush over the gold leafing until it gives a nice smooth finish.
Brushing the leafing will also remove any excess flakes.
Return the excess back into your container.
Adhere your cut-out wreath in the top right-hand side of your layout.
Use a combination of cut out twigs, leaves and collectable elements and adhere them to the wreath.
Add 2 gold birds on either side.
Add cut out gift boxes, houses and other elements to finish off your layout. Add diamante and white paint splash.
