Masculine Layout / Picture Tutorial

Hello everyone,

It's Roshni here, and today I have a picture tutorial for a masculine layout using Papericious - Naturals  paper pad that I received in my DT kit. So let’s get started :) 

Step 1

I took a piece of white 12x12 thick cardstock and applied Gesso on the two sides where I was going to apply texture. Then using tim holtz mini stencil and sakura modelling paste  randomly applied texture on the sides.  

Step 2

Then I applied a coat of brown acrylic paint and layered it with different shades of brown soft pastels.

I then highlighted the texture with a brownish orange color.

Step 3

I used a paper from the Papericious - Naturals paper pack  and stuck that over my base sheet.

Step 4

Using a travel and gear stamp I randomly stamped around the area I was going to apply my image.

Step 5

Then I colored the MDF cuttings in the same way I colored the texture on the base sheet.

Step 6

I stuck the picture and cut-outs using aleenes-tacky-glue-fast-grab and also added two tiers from an old toy car.

Step 7

Then I  fussy cut a few pieces of brick from the pattern paper and added foam tape on the back and stuck it around the image to give it a bit more dimension and  my layout was ready :) 

Sharing a few more pictures of finished layout :) 

I have you liked my Layout and I was able to Inspire you :) 

Have a Great Day and Happy Crafting <3
