Repetitive Stamping | Tutorial

It's Natalie here with you again. I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend? Today it's my turn to share with you a tutorial as I'm the last of the DT girls to do so (in this first round anyway!) I'm sure you've been enjoying them all as much as I have.


What I thought I would share with you is two things.....
One: this video takes you through my process from start to finish as I put this layout together. It's in fast-forward because it would be tedious to take you on the very long journey in real life (I'm a pretty slow and indecisive scrapper, and if you've watched any of my other videos you'll see that I like to put things here, then move them there.... then move them back again to where they began! LOL!)


Two: what I wanted to focus on today is the technique that I've called 'repetitive stamping'. Or another way that I like to think of it is 'making your own patterned paper'. Because what I mean by that is taking one single stamp and using it over and over to create your own pattern.


In the video you'll see that I've done that in a few different ways. I used the Cloud Outline stamp to make my own patterned paper (and I've painted in the clouds to add some more colour). I used the Seriously Arrow stamp to create my own border strip. And I used the 'hello' from the Typewriter Love Set to make a little text embellishment.


Even though I've done a tonne of stamping on this page, because I've only used the 3 images it keeps it from looking too cluttered and busy. What it also means is that apart from some other Evalicious Tags I've not needed to use any other embellishments (and that's always good for the budget! LOL!)


PS. My page is about that look of wonderment and awe on my youngest' face whenever her Daddy tells her a story. I know that in a few years time those same stories are only going to generate an eye-roll and perhaps a groan of "I've heard it all before" so I thought I better capture it whilst I can!!
