Hello everyone! Nathalie here to show you how to create a Textured Winter Scrapbook Layout using the Small Moments Stamp and Die Bundle. Winter pictures can be hard to document due to the large amount of white space on them, therefore adding a bit of texture can make them shine. Let me show you!
Adding texture to the title
Heat embossing is one of the best ways to add texture to stamped images. For this title, first, I stamped the Small Moments image on white cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink, then embossed the snowflakes with Crystal Clear embossing Powder. I cut the letters (SNOW) using the Bold Alphabet Die Set twice from this paper.
Embossing white cardstock with Pure White Embossing Powder adds a shimmer to the paper. I used the Simply Hello die to cut the shiny “hello” for the title of the page. The subtle texture of the embossing powders brings interest to the simple white title.
Adding texture to the background
A textured winter scrapbook layout needs interest in the background to make the picture pop. I embossed the Small Moments Stamp Set with Clear Embossing Ink and a combination of Crystal Clear and Pure White Embossing powders. The mixture of these two powders creates a shimmer frosted image that adds interest to the background.
Adding texture to the embellishments
Another way to add texture to the layout is to create layered embellishments such as the snowflakes. Mixing different papers in the layers bring color and interest to the page. I cut the snowflakes using the Layered Snowflakes Die Set from white and metallic blue papers. In addition, I also added embossed snowflakes using color embossing powders and Enchanted Gold Ink and clear embossing powder.
The finishing touch in this textured winter scrapbook layout is a few drops of Antique Gold and Pure White ink sprays. The combination of texture and layers make the page stand out, and you can see it come together in this video. You can also watch the video in HD on YouTube.
I cannot wait to see how you use these beautiful Altenew products to add texture in your next project.
