Techniques with Barb... Just Because!

Good morning everyone! Barb here to host the blog today!

Quick Quotes has so many products that I love and today, I decided to combine several of them! Here is a layout I created using the Just Because Paper line....

 I got a little messy with this layout!
I used Gesso, PowderPuff Chalking Inks and Shimmering Mist!


The quote is from the Quick Quotes Bundle Sentiment set. I felt it was perfect since the picture on the layout is 13 years old. I took this picture when I had my older children (now ages 23, 22 & 20) at the Indianapolis Children's Museum. Sometimes I can't believe how fast the time went with them at home.


For the flowers, I painted the patterned paper with gesso, then inked it in Blue Hawaiian, Very Berry, Biscotti and Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I then stitched the heart in the center and finished it all off with some Shimmering Mist.


The butterflies are from the Butterflies Bag O'Chips. I love these chipboard laser die-cuts. They are thick enough to take painting and inking but are still thin enough to emboss and not add too much weight to a page. 

I wanted to show you how easy it is to emboss this chipboard so I made a video for you!
