Shabby Love Symphony Layout – Grace

Happy New Year! (bit late, but this is my first post of the year!). For February I’m working with the AB Studio Shabby Love Symphony papers, to see the paper pack in detail and all the other lovely items I got in my Feb DT kit, you can watch the video share here.

For my first project I’ve created this scrapbook layout, featuring lots of fussy cutting.


Before adding my photo and the fussy cut elements, I added a light amount of mixed media to the background. I lightly sprayed Distress Oxide Spray in Spun Sugar, added splatters of Fabrika Decoru Chalk Spray in Blue Shabby, and then some stencilling with Dusty Rose Impasto Paint with a 13 Arts Rose stencil. While the Impasto was still wet I sprinted on some Prima Glass Glitter in Gold Rush for some added sparkle!

All the fussy cut elements are from the paper pack, and I arranged them around the photo in the same way the flower pattern was already on the paper. Some were added with foam tape and some adhered straight onto the paper for different layers of dimension.

Around the fussy cut pieces I added Distress Oxides in Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage. One all the elements were in place I added adhesive pearls, gems, and then nuvo drops to fill in any gaps.

For my title I used some stickers from my stash, and used these tags from another cut-apart/fussy cutting sheet from the AB Studio papers to back them. Again going around the edges with Oxides.

I finished the layout with another load of Chalk Spray splatters, as many of them had been hidden by embellishments and the chalk spray is so pretty you just have to show it off!
