My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

Hi and i'm back again sharing with you my latest layout using Core'dinations cardstock. I fall in love with one of their embossed collection called Cosmo Cricket Core Impression - Neutrals Collection. I know some of us like me, find it hard to start scrapping on a cardstock. We generally prefers pattern paper to begin with. But well, is not that hard as i think it is. This is what people called scrapping on "White Space". Is actually fun where you have the flexibility creating your own background. The "Space" is yours and you just explore them by using any mediums in your stash. For my layouts, i decided to play with this 3 main things, 1) Acrylic Paint 2) Glimmer Mist 3) Crayons. I think the outcome is just awesome. The embossed texture in this cardstock helps my layouts into different dimension and i think you should give a try.

Some of cool things that i do with the cardstock...

1) Crayons - i melted it all around the cardstock using heat gun

2) Acrylic Paint - i used the liquid form paint and i splatter and blow it with a straw. Try different kind of straw sizes as it gives a different effect.

3) Glimmer Mist - Try using contrast color to your cardstock. It will definitely boost the color of your layout.

So don't be afraid to use cardstock as your base. I can guarantee you will like the effect.

I hope you enjoy my layout!
