Wait! Once You Have Your Leaf Background Ready, Then You'll Need To Start Adding Your Scrapbook Embellishments....Let Me Show You...
Mask off a border on your 12 x12 white plain cardstock. Then as you can see, I've used my inks really roughly to create this gradient background. I sprayed it down with a little bit of water for it to be translucent since we will be layering some colors over the top.
Now we got our fantastic silhouette as seen below!
Next is to ink up the rest of the leaf where it wouldn't have picked up some of the ink. This time, focus on getting the ink of the veiny part of the leaf and stalk.
You can give your leaf a little spray of water to activate it and get some of that ink moving around. But make sure not to overdo it.
Then get a scratch paper and put it on top of your leaf. Push all the ink from the leaf into the space that we have created so we can imprint the inks.
Look how cool and awesome my page has turned out!
Using the same technique and process, we'll do another one to the other leaf using a bright blue ink!
After finishing up our leaf prints, pull off the washi tape border so you can see what it would look like as a final page.
This page looks absolutely gorgeous! The background colors would be a perfect contrast to some lovely black and white pictures!
I hope this tip inspired you to create more colorful and vibrant pages!
