Bgc#51 - Laugh Layout with PJ

Hello my beautiful friends !
Welcome to another post for the 
Karen our scrapbook expert , has given us this lovely sketch to make a LO !
I know most of us Indian crafters are still more into card making , which is why 
we have taken upon us to give u a challenge that will test your creativity yet again !
Honestly even i am not very good at Layouts , coz i get stuck at how to use the embellishments and how to use what i have ! But karen pushed us all to try it and here we are !!!
Im pretty excited about my LO , I really love it !
and the Sketch helps alot !

So here is the sketch 

And here is my LO 

I will be showing you a tutorial on how i made this, so lets get started . 
 Ok so the first step would be to take a 12 *12  cardstock. I used white its a little smaller , 10*10 .
Take a stencil and a mister of your choice , I m using Heidi Swapp-stencils and Lindy's stamp gang mist.

 Place the stencil on a scrap paper , and mist it with color. 
Alternatively if you do not have mists , use watercolors with a toothbrush .

 Now lift up your stencil and you should see that it has a fine layer of misting on it.
 Turn it upside down and start sort of stamping with the stencil ! 
it should leave some cool impressions on your paper ! 
Be random about it , doesnt have to be perfect .
 I then placed my stencil on the cardstock again and added a scrap piece of paper to cover the lower end . 
And now again i sprayed my mist. 

 Now this is how it looks .
Add some more colors , I picked yellow and orange to create some lovely color !
 As per the sketch i lined a white cardstock with My mind's eye papers , 
and my photo on top. I flipped the sketch !
 I stamped the sentiment "Laugh " on a scrap cardstock and inked it with tattered rose distress ink. 

 Now take some mesh cloth and rub it randomly on the distress ink pad , Tattered rose first ,
 And shabby shutters next !
 This should randomly color your mesh cloth giving it a lovely effect ! 

 Time to stick the pieces together ! I added the mesh cloth under photo layer.

Dont forget to stamp ! 
 Just scrunch the mesh cloth a little . We are going to add our embelishments on it now.
 Here are the embellishments i used ! 
So once done this is how my LO looks ! 
So hope u like my project .
