Layout Tutorial

As promised, I want to show you how I created my 'Always My Girl' layout from this month's MCS reveal using a white cardstock as my background.

I started by pulling some of my mists that I thought coordinated with the beautiful, bright colors in this month's LE kit. I used Glimmer Mist in Sun Sisters, Hoola Hoop, S.W.A.K. and Trunk Bay. I also used an old Prima stamp I had in my stash along with StazOn ink in Timber Brown.

Next, I stamped randomly around an 11x11 piece of white cardstock. I chose a solvent ink pad because I didn't want my stamped image to bleed when I used the mists. I used a combination of misting and splatting.

I used the zigzag stitch in my sewing my machine to sew my background onto a sheet of pattern paper.

I finished my page by adding photos, cut-out design elements from the papers, flowers and other embellishments.

Hope you found this tutorial useful. Thanks so much for your visit today!

This is a darling page! Love the glimmer mist technique, I have so many colors of that stuff, but seem to always forget to use them!
