Hello and welcome aboard our Urban Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Lauren’s CTMH Craftings then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you a scrapbook creation which features Close To My Heart Featured collection “Urban”.
This layout was created again with scraps left over after making the projects from the Urban Workshop Kit. I didn’t have a lot left over, so using some French Vanilla Cardstock as my base I set about grunging up the background, drawing on skills that I’ve been learning at an Art Journaling course I’ve been doing. Instead of paint for the background I rubbed Saffron and Toffee Exclusive Ink pads across the surface. I then stamped a variety of the stamps from the matching stamp set in a variety of places around the page – in a trio. I used a variety of Sapphire, Peacock, Toffee and Pewter Exclusive Inks. At times you’ll see that the stamp is not stamped correctly, either incomplete or even sideways/upside down and this is by design. Along with first, second and even third or fourth generation stamping. I also scrapped in the unstamped areas some transparent texture paste and then sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder on it whilst still wet. I choose not to heat the embossing powder, instead leaving it grainy to create another texture on the page.
To wet your appetite here are some other creations from the CTMH Art Studio.
This exclusive Urban Collection is only available until the end of January.
This Workshop Kit can be yours for just $64. Individual components can be ordered from your CTMH consultant. If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.

Dannii, you have used lots of different techniques and the look of the layout is great. I am sure when you add your photos, it will be stunning.
Thanks for the great tips to create a stamped background with so much variety and texture Dannii.
So glad you got some tips Shauna. Xx
