Hi everyone! I decided to use one of my favorite stamp set for this layout, Full Circle. I love this stamps set but if you know me, I struggle to use circles. So I decided to face my fears and go for it!
To start, I gessoed my white cardstock. I knew I wanted to add some mixed media to this so I need the gesso. Once that was dry, I started stamping. I used StazOn black ink because I was planning to add water and didn’t want the ink to run. I put 5 stamps on one block and stamped it as many times as I could in the area I wanted the stamps in. I then came in with the individual circles to fill in the empty or sparse areas.
Next, I used my Distress Oxide inks and some water to splatter all over the stamped area. I used 3 colors (Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, and Cracked Pistachio) that went with the color scheme I was planning on using. I waited for each color to dry before splattering the next color because I didn’t want them to run together and get muddy.Then, I added some embellishments from Amy Tangerine and backed my photos with a piece of Shine On paper. I finished by adding some of the Rachel Black Pearls to add some sparkle and some journaling.
