Hey guys! Here's a quick tutorial on how to add a graphic element to your layout by using the stamp from the fabulous Mind the Gap kit.
Stamp the circle image onto your chosen paper. Stamp the image again being careful to line the images up. This is where having an acrylic block comes in handy. As you can see, I wasn't so careful to line my images up but I still like the way it turned out.
To further enhance your stamped image and make it pop, add bits of patterned paper. To do this, stamp your image on your chosen paper and cut out the petals of the circle as shown in the image below. Keep in mind to cut just inside the stamped outline so your petals fit into your flat stamped image. The middle part is kind of cool too but I ended up not using it on this layout.
I used my trusty little Xyron to adhere the tiny pieces onto the stamped image. Love how it brings that added dimension to my layout.
I finished it off by adding a title, some images and a little journaling. I also added a few sprinkles of punched out dots.
Love seeing everyone's Mind the Gap creations in the gallery! Hopefully this will inspire you to pull that stamp out and create some more!
