Deonna's October Kit Layout Tutorial

Hi! Deonna here today sharing a layout tutorial that I created using the October Kit, which features the beautiful Prima Garden Fable collection. I used the Main Kit, Flower Add-On and Embellishment Add-On to create this page.

Step 1. Cover the entire paper with gesso.

Step 2. Cut the green rectangles from the piece of Garden Fable "Blushing" patterned paper.

Step 3. Water down green Tim Holtz Distress Stain and brush it over the page.

Step 4. Distress the edges of the cut out green rectangles.

Step 5. Ink the edges of the distressed papers with green Distress Stain.

Step 6. Spritz the inked papers water to spread the color.

Step 7. Emboss the edges of the papers with an iridescent blue embossing powder.

Step 8. Ink and emboss several pieces of chipboard ephemera from the Prima Debutante Chipboard and More package of embellishments (Embellishment Add-On).

Step 9. Ink the petals of flowers (Flower Add-On), dip in embossing powder, and heat set.

Step 10. Ink and emboss the resin fairy from the Main Kit.

Step 11. Emboss several of the Garden Fable Wood Icons (Embellishment Add-On).

Step 12. Dilute green Tim Holtz Distress Stain, brush onto the background paper, and let it roll off the paper. While the ink is still wet, add embossing powder and heat set.

Step 13. Assemble the layout. Use a paintbrush to add diluted Distress Stain to select areas of the layout.

Here's some close-up photos of the embossed page elements. The embossing powder really catches the light, adding a fantastic shimmer to my layout.

Using the same process as above, I also created this blue layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you! The October Add-Ons, the Mixed Media Kit and the Card Kit are available for purchase now from the C'est Magnifique Store. The October Main Kit will be on sale on September 30th.
