One of the things I really enjoy doing with my scrapbook pages is taking pattern paper and by adding more to it create my own look.
Here I took a piece of Kaisercraft patterned paper and using stamps, stencils, mist, ink and gesso created my own background.
The paper had a subtle pattern to it so first I added more using a script stamp by Kaisercraft and Stone Grey ink. I distressed the edges and rubbed some Teal Damask ink by Prima in spots before sponging Gesso through a Crafter's Workshop Diamond stencil. When it dried I lightly misted with Turquoise Blue Glimmer mist and rubbed Dry Sand ink through another Crafter's Workshop stencil.
The picture is my 2 younger ones posing in front of a fountain while on vacation in Italy. No matter how much they got on each others nerves on the trip they would still stop and pose any time I asked (now if I could only get them to stop fighting).
Most of the supplies used on this page came from the November Swirlydoos kit.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
