Creating a background page was totally out of the box for me! I struggle with “getting messy” so as you can see, I kept my technique simple.
So here’s what I did:
1. Punched all around a piece of 12 x 12 karft cardstock using a Recollections punch
2. Using Crafter’s Workshop 12 x 12 Reverse Chicken Wire template, I applied Gesso using a sponge paint brush. And once it dried…
3. With the template still in place, I lightly misted the cardstock with Mister Huey’s “Passport” Coloring Mist.
I was going to add a few drops of red paint, but chickened out! LOL After getting the background completed I went on a hunt for a sketch to create my page.
My layout design was inspired by a sketch by Em at PageDrafts . AND.... I was able to use up some old scraps from Echo Park and Jillibean Soup!!!
I am looking forward to seeing all of your takes on this challenge!
