'Dream Love' by Elisa Ablett

Hi Scrap Matrix fans, 

Elisa here from the design team with my latest layout and step by step tutorial for Scrap Matrix.

Vicki from Scrap Matrix stocks an amazing array of the quality 13 Arts products which feature heavily on my layout. Make sure you follow the links and head on over to check out the range of inks, papers, embellies, stencils and other awesome products.

I decided to use the awesome new collection by Aida Domisiewicz from 13 Arts called 'Art Journey', a gorgeous 12 x 12 Mandala stencil by Kinder Kreations and Ayeeda Pastel Mist in Coral, Mint and Turquoise AND of course many more gorgeous products from the shop. Follow the tutorial to find out !

First step - Using a craft mat, lay your stencil down and spray your combined colours directly onto half of the stencil, trying to keep them in lines and not over the top of each other. Then carefully flip the stencil and press down onto a sheet of 13 Arts - Art Journey - Imagination paper, smooth the back of your stencil with your hand gently or with a brayer. Lift your stencil carefully.

Add a little colour to the centre of your stencilled Mandala by using a paintbrush and a small amount of each colour of the Ayeeda Sprays.

Using White Ayeeda 'Splash' Ink  and a ruler, use the dropper with ink on it to draw a few lines down the edge of the stencilled Mandala from the top to the bottom. This is where you will Stencil with modelling paste. Then as per the photo below spray a bit more of the Coral and Turquoise Pastel Spray on the right hand side of your layout.

Next I used a gorgeous 13 Arts stencil - Aria Song with Modelling Paste and added some texture to my layout over the top of the white ink lines and sprayed colour.

Next gesso your Scrap Matrix Brass Butterfly and then spray the edges with Coral Pastel Ayeeda Spray Mist and then colour the inside of the butterfly with 13 Arts Turquoise Glitter Ink.

Gesso your Scrap Matrix - Chipboard pieces and your 13 Arts - Art Journey Chipboard titles Dream and Love.

Once you have gesso'd and your chipboard is dry, add colour to your pieces by using the inner tube from your 13 Arts Pastel Ayeeda Mists.

and then fussy cut your turquoise flowers from the 13 Arts - Art Journey - Freedom Sheet

Last steps - Mat your photo in 13 Arts - Art Journey - Destination paper and Coral cardstock, then stick all your elements to the page as per the main photo. Add splashes of the white Splash Ink from 13 Arts.

Here are some close ups of the finer details -

Here is the main photo again !

Well that's it from me today, I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial!
