What do you think is needed to create a great layout? Lots of fancy embellishments, many new and cutting edge techniques or maybe expensive materials? I’ve asked my self that question and the answer surprised me…you actually need very little of those embellishments, techniques or materials. You can create a fabulous layout with paper, ink, gesso and mask!
This layout is paper based with a simple easy technique. I started the layout with a circles mask gesso and a little distress ink. I first used the gesso and then the ink to create a continuation in the pattern of the circles. I hit set it to dry the gesso and then puffed some of the gesso with the hit gun.
I then layered paper and paper tags to create dimension as well as different fussy cutting shapes.
Finally I created different sizes of paper flowers and gave them a little more dimension with small touches of gesso around the edges.
Try to challenge yourself to create a layout with nothing but paper and a simple technique and see what your creativity can create!
Have fun creating!
