Lucy and Corinne

Today's layout is bursting with technique. Lucy scraps a wonderful page about her and her friend Corinne Delis. She also tells you how to change the color of your felt, make a colorful background using gesso, and shares a very cool flower tutorial.

Unknown bling
Queen&Co flower felt
Black Acrylic Paint

Start by using the gesso on your background.
While the gesso is still wet, add some drops of alcohol ink and brush it with a soft paint brush and leave on the side to dry.
Using the gesso, cover your butterfly with it too. Allow to dry. I didn't paint it, I left it white.
It doesn't matter the color of the felt you have because you can always paint it. In this case I had a blue one, however, I wanted it in black. So I used MM acrylics, painted my felt in black and speeded up the drying with my heat gun.
Leave on the side.
Meanwhile you can do these flowers that originally I've learned from Katya. Check out her blog for the flower tutorial.
Now you can cut the flower shape from bazzill in half and doodle the border.
Get a piece of Taylor paper and make it wrinkled. Place it with the picture on the top of your layout.
Everything should be dry by now and you can stary placing things on your background.
Write your journaling using the MM mini shimmer alpha stickers.
Add some bling bling on your butterfly wings and place it on the side of your photo.
I used HS foam Alpha to use mine and Corinne's initials under the butterfly.
Place your heart for a little journaling, trace around with a black pen.
