Special by Sanderijn de Bruin-Mittendorff

Hi everybody,
Today I want to show you my newest layout, made with the gorgeous Dreamscapes collection. The picture I used, says a thousend words…my little girl, looking a little bit rebellious, but still being the sweetest ever. I want her to know how special she is to me. I hope she never looses her twinkle in her eyes, and will always pursuit her dreams.


First, I primed my paper with clear gesso, and then I used the geometric stencil on the paper. I used a different technique this time: I added white gesso on the stencil, on just a piece of old paper, and then I laid my stencil on the actual paper, and used a clean palette knife to go over it. This way I got a real subtle background design, which you can see in the close up picture. I added some Lindy’s spray, to give the background just a little bit more color, and splattered the ink here and there. Then I stamped with the clear stamp from Homegrown collection, and embossed it with embossing powder. I used tags, flowers, cheese cloth, and some feathers to build op my page. I painted my chipboard wings and title and glued them down. I used Lindy’s spray also on my word sticker, before adding it to the wings. Some white acrylic paint splatters and my page is finished!



Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn
