Without Music Life Would B Flat——a “coarse” in Texture Gel 101

I found this quote on Pinterest and I thought it would make an awesome layout of my hubby playing the guitar. I was in the middle of making design team layouts for my LSS, The Paperie, and I made this layout for the June kit:

I took my TCW 12×12 Brick stencil and taped it down onto my navy blue cardstock and work surface. I mixed Liquitex coarse texture gel and a bit of white paint on my Ranger Craft Mat. Then I taped scrap paper on the stencil  and exposed only the area that I wanted to add the texture gel.I added the mixture with my pallate knife and this is what I got:

I wanted my bricks a little more white so I painted them with my paintbrush and Ranger Picket Fence paint:

 I added some white paint splatters with my paintbrush and got this:

Then I added my photos and layering and some doodling with my Faber Castell PITT pen and my Signo White pen:IMG_9043

I fired up my Silhouette Cameo and started cutting. I arranged my title using my die-cut letters and some sticker letters included in the kit. I added some embelishments, washi tape and sticky notes and here it is:

Have a great day!
