weekly challenge | Anna-Maria Wolniak

Hi everyone! I loved working with the Blue Note Scrapbook kit, and I have a tutorial on how one of my projects came together. I decided to make a blue/navy layout with a touch of red and some white space - all of these colours you can find in December kits. You won't need anything more than a few things from the Blue Note Scrapbook kit and 'Blue Note' printables to create similar project as I made.

I used a diamond shape cardboard as a mask. To get a proper shade of blue mist I added a few drops of ultramarine ink to the bottle of Mister Huey's 'Bazinga' mist.

I used the misted cardboard mask, recycled glassine bag and transparent foil with silver stars to create the layers under my photos. Close to the darkness parts of the photos I applied some thin layer of gesso and afternoon it dried I paint a little bit using peerless watercolours and the same shade of Mister Huey's I used for misting.

Next I added some printable details, ultramarine tangled thread, a title and 'december' stamp. I put a printable tag into the hidden pocket made with glassine bag and...

... my layout was ready. Oh, I forgot that I also made some tiny splashes using Mister Huey's Opaque White - my favourite not only for the winter projects.
