Layering Layers:: A Scrapbook Tutorial By Angie Gutshall

A scrapbook tutorial by Angie Gutshall @ Do you like to layer? I love layering and wanted to share my process with you. Layering on a layout can be a lot of fun and a great way to use up small pieces of scraps. You can layer a lot or a little. For me I usually like to layer a lot.

First step I took was to prepare my background paper. For this step, I first misted on a craft mat and used my cardstock to soak up the mist. Second I took a mask and used some textured paint to make the grey blocks. And lastly I took some 3d paint (yellow) and sponged it on the cardstock.

After the background dried I started to cut out my patterned papers and began layering them on top of each other. I also distressed the edges of the paper.

The next step was to add my pictures which I even layered those too. The one in the middle is slightly on top of the two pictures on each side.

Now comes the fun part of layering all the embellishments! This is my favorite part! I added some flairs, wood veneers, tags, and die cuts. I love tucking pieces here and there. It’s fun to make them peek out behind the layers.

Lastly, I added a title to the layout. The first part of the title is sticker letters and the second part of the title I cut out with my cameo. You will also notice I did some machine stitching on my layout.

Thank so much for joining me today for my step by step tutorial. I hope this tutorial inspires you to start layering!!
