GCD Studios - May Technique Layout

Melissa Mann

This month's technique layout was to use lots of color! Reds, blues, greens, & yellow. The colors black & white were to be used to pull the layout together with minimal use. I matted the Kraft cardstock with black cardstock and painted a light covering of gesso over the Kraft. I also used white thread as a border around the Kraft cardstock using my sewing machine. I then took strips of paper by three different collections from GCD Studios and sewed strips of them down in the bottom half of the layout. I adhered my photo above the strips. My title went over the photo – keeping the same horizontal design of the strips of paper. The chipboard hearts were placed over the strips of paper bringing the bright, colorful pops of color to the layout. And lastly, I stamped two sentiments below the strips of paper.

I have a tutorial up on the GCD Studio Blog HERE on how to make the "frosted" hearts as well as a full supply list.

Have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!
