Prima November BAP

Just stopping in for a quick share tonight. I had a chance to play along with the Prima BAP this month just for fun, and wanted to try my hand at some techniques I'd seen recently in one of Georgia Heald's videos, with my own spin on them. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I'd never thought of using it on my layouts, but I love the way it turned out (though I'm not so keen on the way my scraproom smelled).

I've had these baby pictures of Brennan waiting to be scrapped forever, and the neutral of his sweater played so nicely against the deep, rich tones of the Sunrise Sunset papers.

I did a lot of background work - stencilling with gel medium through the Prima Orbs stencil and then adding in partial outlines with a Sharpie Poster Pen, whitewashing the background with gesso, stamping circles with Ginger Peach Silks and Bricks with black ink and some Shimmerz Dazzlerz as a finishing touch.

I fussy cut bits from both the Craftsman and Lifetime lines to use as embellishments, and stained both the papers and flowers with coffee to age them.

I love Prima's bark butterflies - this time I used the back side and stained it with Silks and some splatters from the poster pen before dressing it up with a couple of the Tiny Junk Yard Findings.

And here's the gorgeous sketch:
