Teresa Collins-Life Emporium Layout

Modeling Paste is so much fun to play with when I have some sturdy paper to use with the it. Which is one of the things I love about the Emporium collection, thick, sturdy, textured papers! It has been so cold lately, that I feel slightly warmer thinking of old wood-burning fireplaces. So, why not play with some good old wood print papers!

I used a couple of stencils with different modeling paste on the background of the lovely wood print paper. But before doing this, I swiped some gesso paint across the paper and stamped some plus signs. I love that I can see the texture of the background paper where the gesso is slightly covering the paper.

I wanted to use the FancyPants large navy alphabet stickers on this page, but I really don't gravitate to navy supplies and did not have any other navy alphabets to complete my title. I ended up painting some small October Afternoon alphas with the Heidi Swapp Navy color shine. It worked for me!

I kept the embellishment to a minimal so that the background paint and modeling paste would be the main embellishment of the layout.

Stay warm and thanks for clicking in, Tisha :)
