Hi everybody! Today I would like to share a layout photo tutorial with you. I have used papers from the Gammaldags Jul. This is what the layout looks like.Dream Big

Since I want to alter the Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces I will be using, I start with those. It takes some time for them to dry. First I ground with white gesso and then add some Distress Paint (scattered straw) and some Shimmerz (golden wheat) here and there. When the colours have dried I ink the edges using fluid chalk ink (dry sand).

Tut1 To make the chipboards more shiny, I add glossy accent and before it dries I sprinkle some pearls on top.

Tut2 Now the chipboards are ready to be used on the layout.

Tut3 I layer the papers Vackra paket and Karamellstrut from the Gammaldags Jul collection on top of each other like this. The edges are inked with fluid chalk ink.

Tut4 Then I glue down two old book pages and the chipboard circle. I tuck in the photo inside the circle.

Tut5Then I add my other two chipboard pieces and two vines to add to the circle.

Tut6After that I add a bow to create more texture. And I also add some grey and brown mini roses here and there.

Tut7 Tut8 To make it more colourful I add some purple mini roses as well.

Tut9 As final details I add two shabby chic treasures (corners) and some crystal swirls.
