Italy layout with mini photo background tutorial

Hello my dear blog readers.....

I hope your day is going well....

I started yesterday with my challenge layout for the blog from 7 Dots Studio.
They have this month the theme challenge: vacation time.
Read here about the blog and challenge.

This is a photo from my husbands family on vacation time in Italy.
Years ago    :-)


A closer look for you.

Mini background tutorial...
My paper is the new collection Green Time Verano Azul by Tusia Lech.

1. Embossing with WOW embossing Opaque Pastel Blue and the stamp from France Papillon.
2. Repeat with WOW embossing Earthtone Olive and the same stamp.

1.Kaisercraft clear stamp Diamonds and Wow embossing Black.

It should be like that.

1. The next step is: Inka Gold Turquoise with a stencil over the embossing area.
2. Go to bed....and let the layout  Inka Gold air dry.

It should be like that.

1. Take a second sheet paper from the same collection. But now the other side.
2. Cut the little cards and distress with the Distress Tool.

1. Take four cards for the background behind the photo.
2. Glue together of tacker with the Tiny Tacker from T.H.

1. Glue the layers on the background.
2. It should look like that.

1. Randomly gesso for the background.

And now colour...
H2O´s Twinkeling tealZircon, kiwi, mystique.
LindysStampGang Starburst: rusty latern lime, blue hawaiian blue, time travel teal.

1. Colour randomly. It shoud be like that. Don`t forget the splatters.

1. Stamp with acrylic black ink and a letter stamp.

It should be like that.

I hope you like the little background tutorial.

Auf jeden Fall wieder einmal ein wunderschönes LO und ich halte Dir fest die Daumen bei der Challenge. Danke für Deinen liebevollen Kommentar auf meinem Blog ;-). Mixed Media ist meine Herzensangelegenheit und ich kann mich sehr oft nicht zurückhalten... Immer habe ich natürlich wenig Material, immer fehlt etwas und so weiter. Ich habe vor paar Tagen Einiges gekauft ;-) Also nur mixen jetzt und scrappen (ich bräuchte glaube Deine E-Mail Adresse). Schönen Abend und ganz liebe Grüsse, Maria ;-)
