Instructions: The finished layout measure 12 inches by 12 inches. Take a green paper from the Cascading paper collection for the base of your layout. In another paper from the same collection, cut a piece 6 x 12 inches. Slightly trim the edge of this paper with a tool designed for this purpose or simply the blade of a scissor.
Start by applying a little clear gesso on your sheet to protect it because you want to create a watercolor effect in your background that requires a lot of water. When dry, apply with a brush gorged of water white gesso. You can also add gesso with spatula. With a brush apply distress oxide violet ink and add water to dilute the whole. Do it randomly on your paper. Then make droplets of violet ink and white gesso by shaking a brush gorged with ink over the sheet. Your grunge background is ready.
Make 2 big, 2 medium and 2 small Classic Rose flowers. Stamp using majestic violet ink onto violet paper from the cascading petal collection paper. Colour the reverse of the flowers and diecut with the coordinating die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. For the 2 little ones, poke a hole in the centre of the flowers and add stamens, secure with hot glue.
Make 2 medium and 4 small Wild Aster flowers. Stamp using jet black ink onto white cardstock paper. Colour the flowers and the reverse with the black ink and diecut with the coordinating die. Spritz with water and give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Poke a hole in the centre of the flowers and add violet stamens, secure with hot glue.
With fern green ink, stamp leaves from the Wild aster collection. Also stamp bloom from the same kit. Die cut and color with fern green ink. Give shape with deluxe flower shaping kit. With a spatula, add a touch of white gesso on your flowers and leaves.
Under your 4 x 6” photo glue a sheet of purple paper to which you will have distressed the sides. Glue other pieces of distressed paper on each side. Paste everything on your page with 3D foam to add dimension to your page.
Arrange 3 small bouquets of flowers and leaves and arrange them on a cheesecloth. Paste them on your page by inserting blooms from the Wild Aster collection in the empty spaces. On a small piece of paper, paste letters to make your title (Halloween 2019) and add it on the right corner.
To add a final touch, dip your brush in glue and dip it in mika flakes, violet hologram glitter and black xs microspheres. Put it on your paper all around your flowers.
