Today I bring you a layout that I created last week for a quick game of “scraplifting” on the Mind The Scrap facebook page.
So I went through all the previous layouts that had been posted and I was really drawn to a mixed media layout by Emma Clark (who is the co-owner of Mind the Scrap). I loved how clearly defined her ink sprays were (mine mixed a bit) and how bright and colourful it was.
I sprayed directly into my textured cardstock. I didn’t bother with gesso (I hate the thing) even knowing that I was going to be applying texture paste. There is a tiny bit of warping, but it is not really noticeable, and you won’t see it when it’s on the page protector anyway. (Plus, gesso wouldn’t stop the warping anyway, it would just make the base harder)
So here is my scraplift!

Excited news today! I have made it into the Design Team for Scrapping 4 Fun challenges! It is a very varied group of talented ladies, with all kinds of techniques and styles, so I am so excited to bring a bit of “mariastyle” to the table!
The first challenge that I am participating on is #98 and it’s all about techniques. The technique that I am using on this layout is Stamping directly on the page.
I got out all my stamps (I don’t have that many, trust me!) and my versafine ink (my favourite!) and got stamping! I left like a semicircle of white space for my photo, but other than that I pretty much filled up all of the space! I am so pleased with how it turned out! This technique works better with photopolymer stamps and a clear block, because then you can clearly see where you are going to be stamping. I don’t think this technique would work well with wood-mount stamps.
