Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here on the Lindy’s blog today and I’m back with a layout created quickly in 5 steps with 5 products (clear Gesso, spray inks, 3D gel medium, stencil, background stamp) it’s really very simple.

P1170328

Step 1: As usual, I started with a thin coat of clear gesso over my patterned paper.

P1170314

Step 2: I used 3D Gel medium over a stencil on the side of my paper. I used the heat gun to dry my surface before using Lindy’s spray inks.

Step 3: I used a brush to apply ink and I added a little bit of water for blending and a smooth effect.

P1170322

Step 4: I used a background stamp and a brush to create a special stamped effect on my background.

September challenge on More Than Words

Hi everyone!

Long time no see!
Here is my latest layout inspired by the September More Than Words Challenge.


Word Inspiration - ORIGINS
Creative Challenge - YOUR COUNTRY COLOURS
 
My ORIGIN is Canada. My boy proudly wears his hat with the maple leaf, that is the canadian flag symbol, during our trip to New-Brunswich this summer.
I decided to interpret this challenge using the COLOURS of my country's flag (White and red) 
Also, I used the Lindy's squirt whose color is "Oh Canada Crimson"

Summer Tone Watercolor Layout for Beginners

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here and I’m back today with a really easy summer tone scrapbook layout perfect for beginners. I created a step-by-step for you to demonstrate how to use different colors on a watercolor background.

P1170258

I used 3 colors (South Shore Sand, C’est la vie Cerise, Kissin’ Kenickie Coral)

P1170243

As usual, I started with a thin coat of clear gesso over my patterned paper. Now, I can use my sprays – spray on one color at time.
It’s very important to let each color dry or use the heat gun to dry the surface after each color.

P1170245

I use a paper towel to sponge the excess liquid in between each color.

P1170246 

P1170248

I created some splashes with a brush to create a water drop effect.

P1170249 

P1170250

When your background is done, you can continue your layout with the addition of some textures. I used a piece of cheesecloth to add a beautifully fluffy texture.

P1170252

After that, I mixed art stones and 3D matte gel and I applied the mixture on my layout.

P1170253

The 3D gel will be clear once dry.

P1170256

This is my finished layout.

P1170258

Here are some close-ups of my finished page.

Background collage technique for Lindy's stamp gang

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here and I’m back today with a special background collage technique, it’s very simple to create and adds lots of wonderful colors and textures on your background. You can use magazine pages or books, rice papers or any thin papers.

P1170299 (2)

First of all, choose your collage papers and 3-4 sprays which fit well with your color palette.

P1170282 (2)

As usual, I started with a thin coat of Clear Gesso over my paper.
After that, I used a stencil and Modeling Paste to create texture on my background.

P1170285 (2)

Then, I ripped pieces from my collage papers and I glued here and there on my background with 3d Gel Medium.

P1170286 (2) 

P1170287 (2)

When it’s dry, I covered the pieces with another coat of Clear Gesso.  I love the effect of the Moonshadow spray to create a dark effect. I used 5 colors on this watercolor background: Pegleg Pete Purple, Moonlit Mulberry, Phantom Fuchsia, Blazing Black, Witch’s Potion Purple.

P1170304 (2)

I added my sprays using brush and I added one color at a time, then I added water to create paler colors.

P1170288 (2) 

P1170289 (2)

Don’t forget to let your background dry after each color. You can use a heat gun too to hurry things up.

P1170292 (2) 

P1170293 (2)

Add photos and embellishments and my layout is finished.

Easy Layout for Beginners using Lindy’s Magical Shakers

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here and I’m back today with a fabulous layout created with just 2 shakers! It’s a very very easy background. Perfect for the beginners. I used a watercolor paper for the best result because I used a lot of water with this technique.

P1170234 

I’m using Vicki Boutin watercolor card is very white compared to some of the other brands, so the colors really POP. First, I used modeling paste over a stencil.

P1170211 

Once dried, I sprinkled some Guten Tag Teal and Cathedral Pines Green over the page, but just over my modeling paste.

P1170212

Then, I added a lot of water with a sprayer to activate the powder.

P1170214 

P1170215 

Sponge the excess with a towel to have a clean surface at the center of the layout.

P1170216 

P1170217 

When it’s dry, use the shaker to create inks in a palette by mixing a little powder with water and use it to add some drops and splatters to the page with a brush.

P1170221

You can add 1-2 drips too.

P1170224

I used a white doily and some pieces of cheese cloth to put behind my photo.

P1170225

Then, I added some flowers, flair, and sequins to create a fabulous layout.

P1170236

Here are some close-ups of my finished layout.
