Today I am showing you the Basic Grey Out of Print Collection! I loved this Collection when I saw it!! It came out this past Spring! One thing I love about Out of Print is that the products aren’t only inspiring to use, but the products inspire other projects as well! First up is this layout I made. I love that collage background paper. I used Gesso to make a matte for my photo. I sprayed some Color Wash in Lettuce, Sailboat Blue and Sunset Orange. I then painted the red dots using the Crafter’s Workshop Stencil and Studio Dash or Red paint. I added some Chipboard shapes and Stickers inside a few of the circles. I used the Alpha Stickers for my title. And I doodled using my Faber-Castel Pitt Pens.
For the card I used another sheet of the Collage paper and sprayed using the Lettuce and Sailboat Blue Color Washes. I punched a scallop circle and then applied some Stickers to it. Finally I added a Bloomer Flower in the middle of the card.
This first Art Journal page started out with one design in mind, and ended up like this. This is one example how the products can inspire you to do something completely different. I added the Butterflies from the Collection.
This Art Journal page was one of the first projects I made. I ripped the Stripes off 2 of the pieces of paper. I like to use a metal edge ruler to rip my paper when I am art journaling. I then used Gesso and the Mini Punchinella Template.
This final paper and made a patchwork background using a variety of the papers. I then used Picket Fence Distress Stain over all of the papers to give it a unified look. I used the Wonky Circle Template with Jenni Bowlin’s Chewing gum paint to make the circles. I then used the mini Punchinella template with Jenni Bowlin’s Speckled Egg and Seed Packet Paint dabbers. I glued my Chipboard Pieces on and then journaled using my Faber-Castell Pitt Pens.
As you can see there are so many ways to used these papers and products! I love this collection and look forward to using more of the papers.
