I really enjoyed making this spread for the new challenge at Eclectic Paperie. I started my pages with the leftover 7 Dots Studios papers that were on my table after making a Birthday Set of projects for Xyron. Here’s that project:
Use up old scrap paper as a first layer
And here’s what the leftovers looked like after I adhered them with Gel Medium:
Create custom paper with Washi Tape
I added several of Ranger’s Distress Paints and started inking with Archival Inks through a stencil. Then I created my own patterned paper using Washi tape repeatedly on black card stock, and cut out letters with the Tim Holtz Block Type Alterations die.
I ran the Washi Tape letters through my Xyron 9″ Creative Station:
And used my brayer over deli paper to really push them into the page:
I used my new Darkroom Door Film Frame stamp with an older Stampers Anonymous face/text stamp, stamping them on tissue paper and adhering to the page with Gel Medium.When adhering tissue to your page it helps to tear rather than cut your edges, as they tend to blend into the page better this way.
I did that on the top left and bottom right. Here’s a pic of the bottom right:
