For this layout, I first spread a very thin layer of gesso onto my background cardstock using a foam brush. The thin layer allowed it to dry very quickly. Then I layered some upcycled silver star cellophane on top of my gesso to create even more texture and interest.
Did you know that you can use Evalicious packaging on your layouts? I upcycled a small glassine bag that was part of some stamp packaging and used it as a pocket on the right side to hold my shipping tag. I stamped the photo quote stamp from the Hello Photo Stamp Set with silver ink onto the tag and then slipped it into the pocket. I also stamped onto the vellum and used a pen to outline more definition. For this layout, I used a bunch of Evalicious stamps to layer and I just love the look! :)
I used one of the new Escape Large Tags for journaling.
One of the things I love to do to create layering and texture is to staple a tab onto a photo. I also used the hello photo stamp and fussy-cut it. Then I outlined the shape with an orange Sharpie pen, because I used light gray and the color didn’t pop out enough. I adhered it to the layout using foam adhesive to make it more dimensional.
And of course, I couldn’t complete an Evalicious layout without using a badge button!
