It tooks me so long to create another double layout ! The last one was in January, 2014 ! In fact, the pictures in this last layout were taken during a cruise trip in Jamaica. And today's spread has cruise pictures as well, but from the one I've just sail two weeks ago !
I create this double layout for my group of French ladies, to teach them how to use washi tapes, with some reminder about previous classes about stamps and gesso... I took inspiration from another cruise layout (still the Jamaica one).
So I gessoed (is it a verb ?) a little bit the pages, and completely the big chipboard letters for the title. I covered the letters with washi and trimmed the excess.
Before adding washi to the layout, I stamped a brick pattern with Oxide ink. Then I added strip of washi and stamped again with floral and travel designs.
I recommand using Stazon ink to stamp, because pigment ink will smear on washi. I use the Timber brown there.
This cruise will not be the last for me this year, as I will have the pleasure to go on the Art Anthology cruise in May for a week ! Have you been on a crop cruise already ? It's my first and I'm very excited about it ! You can find all the details about this amazing cruise on this page, and it's not to late to register ! Let me know if you will be there and you can follow the Facebook group too !
I can't wait for this new adventure, I hope to see you there ! But come back to my blog before that, because I have so many projects to share before !
Thank you for your time, and have a great day !
