I created this layout about my two sons using Palette #124 from the Color Room. The palette was combination of a colour scheme and sketch. I highly recommend the colour room palettes as a way to try something different and push yourself creatively.
I have misted the background with three different mists, before inking through two different masks and then overstamping with my most used stamp…the Darkroom Door French Script Background. One of the masks is just simple dots which I used with Scattered Straw Ink and the other is a star burst which I used with Peacock Feathers Ink. (Both inks were applied with Cut’n’Dry Foam from Ranger)
Just lately I have been playing with a few different ways to add twine to a layout without mess or stitching. On this layout I have placed a small dot of Tombow Mono-Multi glue on the background at the cross-over points of the twine. I am very happy with the result as it is staying in place, you can’t see glue marks and I didn’t have to use a needle and thread. (Which I am not frightened of, I just didn’t have them to hand at the time)
So onto my layout, some close-ups and the supplies I used.
