Right Now: Mixed Media Scrapbook Page by Kris Berc

Hello UmWowStudio fans!  It's Kris here today with a fresh bold layout of my little girl featuring chipboard, flair, and a stencil from the UmWowStudio store!

I used the Checker Board stencil in a couple of ways on my background!

(I had bad lighting while creating my layout, so I apologize for the poor in-progress photos.)

After spreading a layer of clear gesso over a piece of white cardstock and allowing it to dry, I used the Checker Board stencil with a pencil to add some diamond shapes to the cardstock.

I then applied lots of color using sprays/mists, and when dry, I used the Checker Board stencil again, but this time with super heavy gesso, to add some white contrast and texture.

While my layout background was drying, I treated a Distressed Harlequin Background piece and some Diamond Confetti with black acrylic paint.

While the chipboard pieces were drying, I went back to my layout and randomly stamped a triangle stamp around the page with black ink.
