Whiteout: A Scrapbook Page


I finished my first full layout of the year and it's a whiteout!  I wanted to start off the new year with a crisp, clean look so I opted for an all white background with a few black accents to match the black and white photo.  I just love this photo of my sister and I from the 2012 Shining Ball at the Stanley Hotel and I wanted to make sure it stood out.

To create the background I used a Prima stencil and applied white gesso with a palette knife/spatula.  While it dried I cut out the viewmaster die cut with my Cameo.  I glued one layer of acetate to the white
die cut using Glossy Accents, placed my sequins and then added another layer of acetate, glueing it down with Zots.  I adhered the die cut to the page with Glossy Accents.  I mounted my photo on white cardstock and glued that down using Pop Dots to give the page some dimension.

Next I added the Prima and Recollections flowers and the Prima Pebbles (large and small) and used Glossy Accents to glue them all down.  I added the Prima zipper embellishment (glued down with some Zots) and then used my Zutter Bow-it-All to create a perfect bow out of some Tim Holtz crinkle ribbon.  I spritzed the ribbon with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in iridescent gold and scrunched it a bit then glued it down with some Glossy Accents.
