Believe: A Sparkly Layout

 Good Morning! Today I have a layout out to share with you using stenciling, embossing, and lots of stamping! Christmas has come and gone, but, if you're like me, you have many photos ready to be scrapbooked! So, are you ready!? Let's get inky! 

Start with a solid color cardstock and your accent paper. Here you see some of the fabulous paper from Pam Bray's Watercolor Line. Using an edge distresser, distress the edges of the pattern paper. Now put aside and get those inks out! 

Using the Star Slimline Stencil and Distress Ink, stencil the stars on the on your card stock. Then outline them using a fine black marker, ZIG is my go to. 

Now for a little splatter fun! Choosing spray inks in blues, greens, yellows, and red, splatter droplets onto your layout. To do this, screw off the spray nozzle and gently tap over your layout. This technique allows you a little more control over where your spray inks go. 

Using the tree from the stamp set Starbright Gnome Wintery Tree and a little embossing powder, create the tree accent at the bottom of your layout. Embossing never gets old, it is like magic every time! You can use whatever embossing color you have on hand, or if you have little empty containers, you can mix up your own color, like you see below. 

Next, grab the stamp set Classic Christmas Art and black embossing powder. Using the Poinsettia, stamp in Versamark on the scrap pattern paper and emboss with the black embossing powder. Using embossing powder made for fine detail works the best. 

Using the Pine Leave Branch from the Classic Christmas Art , stamp a grouping of Pine Leaves in the top corner of your layout. You can and some sparkle accent with a variety of glitter pens. Fussy cut your embossed Poinsettia, and using a pop dot, adhere to the layout. 

Stamp another Poinsettia on white cardstock and color. You can see here, where I colored Poinsettias with Copics recently. Using kraft cardstock, create the mat for your photos. Then start piecing your layout together. Add the pattern paper from the first step. Using pop dots, added your mat with your photos, and then using another pop dot, add the gorgeous Poinsettia you colored! 

Using kraft cardstock, write out your title, "Believe" and fussy cut. Draw a heart, and finish your title. Fussy cut it out and, once again, use pop dots to add to your layout. For the journaling above the photos, grab a piece of coordinating paper from your scrap bin, cut down to size, add a little ink to the edges and your journaling and you now have a beautiful layout! 

I hope your New Year has started off with blessings and joy and when times get tough, remember, always have hope and believe beyond what you can see. ...and always know that you can find your peace when you sit down and take a moment, or a day, and spend it creating. Below are several places you can go to look for inspiration. Also, make sure you are a member of the Blank Page Muse Fan Page on Facebook so you can connect with crafter's all over, be inspired, and make new friends. 

Until next time.... Happy Creating!
