August Simple Scrapper Story Starter Layout

Today i wanted to share my Story Starter layout for this month and explain a bit about how i made it. 

To create this effect I used a technique that I originally picked up in one of Wilna's video's. She is the Queen of all things artsy and mixed media so if you're ever looking for a new technique to try, her blog should be your first port of call as she never fails to inspire. 

The layout uses a lot more embellishments than i usually do, but i think overall it still has a fairly simple look. i've been purging my stash lately and was in a 'use it or lose it' mood when i put it together. 

First i positioned all the canvas cameras & then i used a gloss medium over the top. Before that was dry i coloured the cameras with gelatos. Then i blended them with water. It's a really easy technique with a lot of impact! And great if you have little patience as you don't have to wait for the gloss medium to dry. 

Whilst i'm here i wanted to point out that Jennifer is currently running a 10 day free trial to the Simple Scrapper Premium Membership.  If you've not yet experienced what the membership has to offer, now is your chance!
