JBS Mercantile Inspiration from Gina Rodgers

Hi, it's Gina and I'm very excited to share some creations with you as Guest Designer, using a multitude of gorgeous supplies from the June Papercrafting, Artisan and Historian add-on kits

First up, behind the photo I've layered some 2013 exclusive JBS patterned paper with a section of vintage perforated address labels which have been machine stitched for texture. I've also added some messy thread and a section of ribbon, which has been pleated and secured with mini fasteners

I've gone for a more subtle colour scheme on this next layout and fell in love with the exclusive Mercantile Ink Spots stamp. I've used a combination of chalk inks on the stamp for a few touches of colour

In this last layout, I've created a background with a few scrapes and smears of white gesso. Once dry, I traced inside some stars from the exclusive JBS scattered stars stencil with a black fine liner. With a little water on a small paintbrush I dabbed the outlines in a few spots to smudge the lines and create a bit of a 'grunge' effect

Happy Scrapping!
