Hello and Happy New Year everyone!
Today I am going to share with you something that I love to do using the clear heavy overlays and a little bit of paint. I love creating my own backgrounds. So are you ready to get started.
Here are a few materials you will need to get started: new clear heavy overlay, paint and ruler for creating the background.
Note: the clear overlays have a plastic film on each side be sure to peel them off before stamping.
And extra materials for finishing the page: birds on a wire, all mixed up, big vintage circle, washi tape, kraft cardstock stickers.
I have used 1 ½ clear overlays and trim to measure 4” x 6” – total of 9 sheets.
Once trimmed lay out on scrap paper squeeze some paint on to a scrap piece of card. Run the ruler’s edge thru the paint.
Now just randomly stamp over all the sheets.
Allow all the stamped sheets to dry and arrange when finished. Grab those printed overlay off cuts and slide under the stamped overlays.
Adhere your stamped sheets in place. Add a few strips of washi tape randomly and then a few little machine stitches here and there. Another option is to used staples or glue.
Once you have the background secure, you can continue to build your layers with more overlays.
That’s what I really love about the hambly overlays is the building of overlays and seeing all the different layers gel as one.
Thanks for stopping by… Leeann J
