Hello everyone!! Kymona here to share how to create a quick and easy scrapbook page background created with ink. When my son was little, I used create many scrapbooks for him, which I shared with family members. My family loved all of the books they received. What’s great about creating scrapbooks to send to friends and family is that you can experiment with various sized pages and different media every time you make a page. Today I am creating a non-traditional sized scrapbook page with a stenciled and stamped scrapbook page background created with ink. This project is part of our collaboration with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine to get your inspired and ready for National Scrapbook Day 2016!
Here is the list of supplies that I used:
- Clearsnap ColorBox Passion Pink Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins
- Clearsnap ColorBox Glam Green Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins
- Clearsnap ColorBox Loft Black Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins
- Clearsnap ColorBox Gold Shine Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins
- Clearsnap ColorBox Ringer Art Screens
- Clearsnap Color Box Art Daubers
- Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder
- Stamp Set
- White Cardstock
- Pattern Paper
Note: This scrapbook page will fit in an 8.75 x 9.50 album.
Here is the scrapbook page:
Let’s get started:
Tape down the stencil on top of the white cardstock and gently apply the ink to the paper using a ColorBox Art Dauber.
Use a different dauber for each color to avoid mixing the ink on the pad itself. Rotate the stencil and tape in place again, adding as many circles as you want.
Once the stencil is lifted, the pattern comes to life.
Now that the circles are complete, decided where you’ll be placing any journaling cards, patterned paper strips, and other elements on the page. This will serve as a guide for the next step: stamping on to the background.
With this layout for the papers, title, and journaling cards, I decided to stamp one impression of the image in the top left corner and one impression in the bottom right corner using Colorbox Pigment Ink. Pigment Ink has a slow dry time so it is perfect for blending, backgrounds, and heat embossing, which is what I plan to do on this page.
Add ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder over the stamped image and heat set to give texture to the page.
Once the embossing powder sets, adhere the pattern paper strips and other elements to the page.
Adhere the photo on top of the layers, making sure that some of the stenciled and stamped scrapbook page background peeks out from behind the photo.
The result is a quick and easy, colorful scrapbook page!
