Hi, it's Louise back with a few LOs to share. This month I chose Authentique, Celebrate as the basis for my blog post. As soon as I saw these papers I knew the colours and designs would be really usable for scrapping photos of my boys. Straight away I was drawn to the bold floral pattern on one of the papers, although it was a bit too 'in your face' for the photo I wanted to scrap. I painted a thin layer of white acrylic paint roughly over the paper, allowing the pattern and colours to show through. I then added a few squirts of yellow mist. With a black biro I doodled over the paper, using the patterns as a guide, and filling in spaces with random doodling of my own. Once this was done the LO was kept very simple. I used a mix of thicker alphas, which is a great way to use up left overs.
I used a cocktail stick dipped into tombo glue to fill in the stars on the title, before covering with glitter. As the glitter is so fine, it is great to use on small areas of detail.
First I misted white card stock with turquoise..
I used the new Jenni Bowling outline alpha stamps with the do it yourself glittered thickers to create the title. I gave the glittered part of the title a black shadow to make them pop from the page.
Why don't you have a go at doodling on your LOs. It's a lot of fun. Please leave a link to your work in the comments box so we can come and take a look at your work. We always love to see what you have done.
