My new Spare Head

1 Comment

Hello everyone, Taru here with another project for our January Challenge!

I have a treat for you today.  I created a set of fun spare head a few months ago. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, then the thought occurred to me that I could create a scrapbooking page with my spare heads.

Take a look at what I came up with:


I used a dark gray craft cardstock and layered it with gesso.

I stamped my cardstock with a newspaper stamp on my background with charcoal ink. It’s so light it’s hard to see!

I used a stencil and embossing ink to create more dimension in my background.

First I spread gold embossing power and then I heat set it. Then I made second round with white embossing power and heat set that as well. The effect is stunning! I love it!


I love old books. I love using old papers and pages on my work, so I decided to add some to this page.   I crumpled both pages and glued behind the heads with 3D stickers. I created a funny tittle for this page. I sprinkled a few random drops of ink on the page to give it a complete look.

Take a closer look at some of my textured elements:






This is page is different, but it’s still a fun scrapbook layout. I totally love what I created!!

I hope you love it too!!  I also hope that it inspires you to create something different with some of the supplies you have at home.
