The Butterfly Garden Scrapbook Page


Hello all
Today you are going to learn how to create this mixed media scrapbook page.

Products used:




Brusho ink or watercolors
Ink Misters in green,
Adhesive
Water mister
Gesso
Various trims
Paper doily
Photograph 
label maker
Woodlands 8 x 8 paper pad
Colored paper


To create the background first cover the center in gesso and leave to dry. 
Next spritz water onto the page and then flick green brusho powder over using a paint brush. 
Use the textures from the Art Journal set and stamp around the page randomly.


Select your photo and mount onto patterned paper leaving a cm or 1" border around it. 
Take a couple of the sheets from the 8 x 8 pad and chop them up into strips. 
Arrange them over each other so that the layers overlap each other and spritz a doily with green ink and tuck behind the picture before gluing everything into place.


Gather an assortment of trims and cut them up into different lengths and place them beside the paper layers and glue down. Create a title using a label maker and use strong glue to hold the title in place.



Using the flowers from The Day Of The Dead and Rosette Hearts set, Stamp them onto colored paper and cut them out. Dot the flowers around the layout and glue pearls into the centers.


Finish of the layout by adding a few more flower clusters.
