This week I will be sharing the projects I have been working on using the Simple Stories – So Fancy Collection.  For this project I decided to create my own background, I wanted something Bold and Colourful to pop my photo of some really great girlfriends of mine!

Gathering the supplies needed – Gelatos, Mini Mister, Texture Effect, scrappers, craft sheet, stencil, paper towels, white cardstock ,and baby wipes.

I began in one corner and coloured large stripes across the paper, spraying with the mister and blending the colour in a light circular motion with my finger into the paper.


I continued across the page colouring and blending until I was pleased with the effect, and then set it aside to dry .


Next I applied a small amount of white texture effect to my craft sheet and added some acrylic paint to it and kept mixing and adding until I reached my desired tone of colour.three

I placed my stencil on the dried gelatos coloured cardstock and lightly spread the paste


I also moved the stencil and added some paste to 2 of the corners, then left it to dry, ( at this time I cleaned the stencil, craft sheet and tools with soapy water and a soft brush )


When everything was dry I assembled my layout . This is my page celebrating two special friends that I am so thankful for, and fortunate to have in my life!


Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!
