Create a Beautiful Wedding Scrapbook Page

With-This-Ring-1

By Alison Heikkila –

Hello! It’s time for my latest tutorial for Imagine, and I decided to make another scrapbook page. This time, I went way back and pulled out some wedding photos. I never did finish our wedding album, so this was a great opportunity to get one more page completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Time to Complete: 1-2 Hours (I’m a slow scrapbooker)

Directions:

With This Ring 2

Step 1:

Gather your supplies. This may seem obvious, but it helps quite a bit to grab a bunch of things that you may wind up using on your page. Inks, ephemera, dies, stencils, etc. are all things that you could use. I grabbed a bunch of items for the photo above, but I didn’t use all of them, and some things i used aren’t shown here. I don’t often have a plan when I am scrapbooking, but I like to grab things to help get me started.

Step 2:

Based on the colors in the photo, I wanted to use the Vineyard Kaleidacolor Ink Pad. I took a piece of Mixed Media Paper and rolled the ink on to it using my brayer and Ink Potion No. 9. The Ink Potion No. 9 helps the color to move and transfer better. It took a number of passes to get the paper covered, but I love how it looks painted and uneven. This piece will go behind the photos to “ground” them. Let dry.

Step 3:

Paint or enhance your ephemera. I found some feathers that have foil on them in my stash, and the negative space was white. So I applied some of the Kaleidacolor Ink to my Craft Mat and painted it on with a brush and water. The look is subtle, but it helped it to coordinate with the rest of my page better. I also added some color to the stopwatch.

With This Ring 5
Step 4:

Add die cuts. I die cut a few lavender stems from white cardstock. I used Elderberry Memento ink and the greens from the Vineyard Ink to paint them. These pieces are delicate, so don’t oversaturate them. I also die cut some foliage from white cardstock and lightly spritzed them with Desert Sand Fireworks! Spray. Using white die cuts allows you to completely customize them.

Step 5:

Add die cuts with colored cardstock. I die cut the wreath out of green cardstock. It needed to be enhanced a bit, so I lightly applied Pistachio and Olive Grove. It’s subtle, but adds a lot of interest.

With This Ring 6

Step 6:

Enhance textured die cuts. I used an Impresslits border under both of my photos. I cut it out of white cardstock, and used Pretty Petunia VersaMagic Ink to enhance the design. I just rubbed the ink pad across the piece. I also sprayed it unevenly with Desert Sand fireworks! Spray for shine and to dull down the white a bit.

With This Ring 7

Step 7:

Begin to place your elements. Play with torn edges, overlapping items, and creating a sense of movement. Move things around to make sure you have good, even placement, and feel free to add or remove pieces as necessary.

With This Ring 8
Step 8:

Add some splatter. I used some more Elderberry ink that I squished on to my Craft Mat to apply splatter to the entire white background. It’s just a bit more color, but it adds a lot to the finished page.

Step 9:

Add your title. I found some ridiculously old rub-ons and letters to help me create the perfect title.

With This Ring 9

Step 10:

Start gluing down your elements. It helps to take a photo of your layout before you start gluing, so that you can place your pieces back exactly where you had them. On Point Glue is perfect for the teeny die cuts I used.

With This Ring 10
Step 11

Finishing touches. Do you need an additional sprig of foliage? Do you need a touch more ink somewhere? This is the point where the page is just about finished, and you just need to add a tiny detail here and there.

With-This-Ring-1

Finished!

We’ve got a very pretty wedding page that works beautifully with the photos and feel of our wedding. Don’t forget…even if your embellishments and/or color scheme are completely different from mine, you can still use these techniques when creating your own layout. Playing with your inks to help enhance items you have in your stash can really tie everything together. Play with your papers and dies to see how you can alter them with inks and sprays to get exactly the look you want. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Use a Creative Watercolor Technique to Stamp

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Use a Creative Watercolor Technique to Stamp

Watercoloring is a very special technique that most artists use with a brush and watercolor set. In today’s tutorial, I show you how to use a watercolor technique and the Misti stamping tool to stamp a watercolor image instead of using a brush. Creating this effect is very simple if you combine Ink Potion No. 9, Memento Inks and Kaleidacolor Inks. Let me show you just how easy it is:

Directions


Step 1

Ink your mat with the colors of ink that you want to use. Be sure to not intentionally mix the colors, just ink the mat and spray it with Ink Potion No. 9.


Step 2

I am using a double step stamp set. One stamp is the border and the other is the inside layer. Stamp the border images with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.


Step 3

Ink the solid image directly over the ink that you have on the mat and stamp it over your cardstock. If you want you can re-ink the image with the mat colors and re-stamp to create different tones.


Step 4

To finalize the card I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair in Shady Lane and clear embossing powder. Then I resized the layer with a stitched die cut and pasted it over a card base. Easy and beautiful don’t you think? Comment below!
