i like to do all sorts of pages. I need to be more clear on what I was talking about. I want step-by-step instructions on doing a scrapbook page layer by layer. None of my pages have more than one layer. There is no dimension to my pages. I just want them to look more professional.
If I'm scraplifting, I reverse-engineer those. So I can see the top layers - piece those first. Then I can see the next layer beneath - piece that and lay it under the top layers on my desk, etc.
That beautiful LO has some of the products shown beneath, so you can tell what has been used.
This one has a blue gingham base. The kraft layer has been placed on top, with a corner folded. The bottom has been scrunched up and sanded, revealing the blue underneath. Lacy bits have been tucked between the layers at the bottom. Another piece has been torn out of the kraft on the top right to reveal the blue, and some flags tucked underneath. There is another tear in the kraft below that, and a different piece of text paper has been placed in the gap over the blue. The rest has been placed on top of the kraft. The kraft lacy pieces I believe are die-cuts that have been inked to match the kraft. Does that help?
I am going to give you this advice: don't think too hard. Just jump in and try it. I looked at dimensional pages for so long wondering how it was done. But you will not learn until you try. There are no rules. Just do what you think looks good and HAVE FUN!!!!!! You don't need directions on what to put down first. Just do what you think looks good!!!!!! You can do it!
I wish there was a" like" button on here as I like the idea but also agree with Rachel (Rae_M)
Expanding on What Rachel said, you can also put mix media in the search on Youtube.
Another thought is to look at the product list and go to the manufacturer website/blog. Most of the larger one usually feature the design team doing a "how to" as well.
However I agree it is good to see how people do things sometimes there is a little trick or tip that can make it all click for me.
Just some general suggestions: always mat your photos, ink your paper, cluster your embellies, and use pop dots for certain elements. I think the variety of techniques brings dimension. I am learning about all of this too. I use the videos here and on youtube for help.
