This is my Scrapbook Layout Challenge for "Once Upon A Sketch"
You will find their link at the bottom of this post!
Scrapbook Layout - you will notice I have turned the sketch around for my layout design - this is the first time I have tried it this way.
Close up of beaded lace work I used for my layout instead of flowers.
Products used for this project:
Cardstock: Kaisercraft CD152 Marine.
Paper: Kaisercraft P858 Luggage.
Perfect Pearls Mist: Ranger - Kiwi.
Chipboard Frame: Molossi.
Chipboard: Oct angular shapes - Molossi.
Ink Pads: Dovecraft - Jet Black, Gold and Crystal White.
UTEE: Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel from "Melt Art".
Techniques: The frame around the picture was stamped with Dovecraft Crystal White Ink Pad, then to keep it wet stamped with a Versamark ink pad and coated with 3 coats of UTEE and dried between each coat with my heat gun which brings it up like a glass finish. As drying the UTEE you will notice the crystals melting.
I used the same effect on the "Memories" chipboard word except for stamping it with Dovecraft Jet Black - it is entirely up to you how many coats of UTEE you apply. It depends on what sort of finish you are looking for. I like to use 3 coats for the desired effect I am trying to achieve.
