Today is an exciting day as I get to Guest Design for Wild Whisper. For those of you who don't know who Wild Whisper is, they manufacture 12x12 paper collections, 4x6 and 3x4 card packs as well as they carry a boutique of embellishments. For my guest design project, I created a scrapbook layout featuring their new collection "Focus on You". Make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the tutorial below so that you'll be able to recreate my layout at home.
To start, you'll need to apply Emboss It ink to five of the cork stars. Once the ink has been added to the stars, sprinkle Glacier White Embossing Powder overtop of the stars. Tap off the excess powder and emboss the stars and emboss with your heat tool. Set the stars aside to cool.
Next, you'll need an abstract frame. Apply Emboss It ink to the frame and sprinkle Dusk Stone Violet Embossing Powder overtop of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss the frame. Set the frame aside to cool.
From the 3x4 cards, cut out three feathers, the heart, the camera and the flowers bouquets. You'll also need to select a 4x6 card and a 3x4 card. You'll want to edge distress the edges of the 4x6 and 3x4 cards. Make sure to ink the edges of the cards and cut out images using Black Soot Distress Ink.
From the floral paper, cut out two flower bouquets, four orange flowers and four yellow flowers. Make sure to ink the edges of the flowers using Black Soot Distress Ink.
Using the brand new stamp set that matches the collection, apply Dusty Concord Distress Ink to the "Focus On You" sentiment. Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock. Cut the cardstock sentiment down to fit. You'll need to distress the edges of the sentiment and then ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
From the ombre star paper, cut a piece that measures 2 3/4" x 6" You'll need to distress the edges of the paper and then ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
From the woodgrain paper, cut a piece that measures 2 3/4" x 6". You'll need to distress the edges of the paper and then ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
From the feather paper, cut a piece that measures 3" x 8 3/4" and a piece that measures 2 3/4" x 6". You'll need to distress the edges of both papers and then ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
From the white star paper, cut a piece that measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/4". You'll need to distress the edges of the paper and then ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink.
Now it's time for assembling your layout. Start by adhering the large feather piece of paper to the base of your layout. Once the feather paper has been adhered, adhere the woodgrain paper slightly overtop of the feather paper. With the feather paper adhered, foam square the ombre star paper slightly overtop of the woodgrain and feather paper.
Adhere the 4x6 card slightly overtop of the woodgrain paper. With the 4x6 card adhered, adhere the 3x4 card in the middle of the 4x6 card. Once the 3x4 card is adhered, foam square the orange word paper in the middle of the woodgrain paper and the ombre star paper.
Foam square the orange feather to the 3x4 card. Foam square the white star paper to the middle of the orange word paper.
In the bottom portion of the white star paper, you'll want to adhere or foam square a flower bouquet, heart, 3 flowers, the camera, the other two feathers and the focus on you sentiment as desired.
In the top portion of the white star paper, you'll want to adhere or foam square the other flower bouquet and the rest of the flowers.
Adhere your photo to the frame. With the photo adhered to the foam square your frame slightly on the left hand side of the white star paper. Once the frame is adhered, adhere three white stars in the top right hand corner and two white stars in the bottom left hand corner. To finish your layout, add dots of Glossy Accents to the centres of the flowers and berries.
Your layout is now complete. Here are a few close up pictures of the elements once they've been adhered to the layout.
