I did a 12x12 utilizing a piece of paper from the 9th Wave Collection by Finnabair for 7 Dots Studio and a giant sheet of watercolor paper.
I trimmed off a 3inch piece of a sheet from 9th wave and adhered it down to my watercolor paper. Then I gessoed over the break in paper to help the two blend together, spreading the gesso out on the two papers. I layered up some background bits like coffee splatters and rings, mist splatters, and 2 favorites of my designs for Viva Las VegaStamps! (Invoice/waybill background and Clockface.)
This bit underneath the photo is comprised of a Nature Walk diecut tag, a big fussy cut Chevron from the Nature Walk Songbird sheet, some May Arts Webbing and Burlap string, and a tag reinforcement from UmWowStudio's Soar Tag Set. You can really see the texture of the gesso in this photo.
This little cluster at the bottom includes the Invoice stamping, some layering of 9th wave Leaf diecuts using a Magnolia die, some Nature Walk diecut elements, and a Prima flower.
The date stamp is just from a date stamp where you can dial up the appropriate date. There's a paper doily, a piece from the Airmail Grid Pocket Chip, a piece from From The Heart flair, and the #3 tab from Round Numbered Tabs all by UmWowStudio. There's also a few more leaves from 9th wave.
I also layered up a large tag from Nature Walk, the punch label stickers from Nature Walk and some staples. You'll notice a few brushes of gesso and some more coffee splattering around to help the continuity of the page.
