Tutorial Tuesday with April Derrick

We have an awesome tutorial for you today from Design Team Member April Derrick.

Let’s get started!

Step 1 – To create the background for my layout, I started by gathering the following supplies: Ranger Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Broken China, two Ranger Foam Applicator Tools, Core’dinations Sand it Gadget , and of course a beautiful sheet of Core’dinations Core Impression Cardstock. The particular sheet I used was from the Jenni Bowlin Studio Collection: Vintage Brights!

Step 2 – I started by applying some of the Weathered Wood Distress Ink along the bottom of the cardstock.

Step 3
– Next I added a layer of Broken China Distress Ink and I made sure to blend the two colors together where they meet so it would having a flowing effect.

Step 4 – I continued to apply the Broken China distress ink all the way up to the top of the cardstock, however I didn’t apply as much towards the top because I wanted to make sure that some of the whitewash coat and stunning red core would show through! This picture shows a close up of how the colors blended beautifully.

Step 5 – I grabbed my Core’dinations Sand it Gadget and started distressing away! I sanded various areas of the cardstock making sure to leave a few un-sanded patches to add visual interest!

Step 6
– I also sanded along the edges of the cardstock to help create a beautiful red border. You can see what my completed layout background looked like before I began adding embellishments.

Step 7 – I completed the layout by adding pictures I had created in a free online photo editor, and various patterned papers & embellishments!
