Lovely Layers >> New Scrapbook Page

Hi friends! I have a very pretty layout from Jessy to share with you today and she is also sharing part of her process with us for how she goes about building a layout! I love to hear about how other scrapbookers build their layouts and how they work through the process so thanks for sharing that with us Jessy!!

Hi there! Jessy is back with you again! Do you find yourself out of mojo sometimes or just don’t know where to begin? When I am in that state, I will try to play around with embellishments and papers. I will layer my papers, add embellishments and reposition them as I go. This process will sometimes spark ideas or create a look that I never thought of doing in the first place. For this layout, that is exactly what I did.

I started off with the Pretty Palette paper and layered them along with the embellishments as I went. I decided to add a doily at the end. I wasn’t happy with just white cardstock as my background paper so I cut the grid paper (the back of Pretty Palette paper) into 4 smaller pieces and layered them onto each other in the middle. I also painted it white with gesso so that the grid lines do not stand out too much. I splattered some gold & mint green mists for an artsy look. Lastly, I sewed along the edges of the journal paper. Then finally I finished it with doilies at the top and bottom of the layout.
