Today is hop day with the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team and the theme this week is super cool. This week we’re making projects based on Movies and/or TV. I chose Labyrinth for my card and I hope you love it!
So, if you haven’t seen the movie – get on it! You’re missing out haha! This was on of my all time favorite movies growing up and it’s still on my list. I remembered this scene (pictured below) being a little more colorful as you’ll see in my project, but I still love the way it turned out.
To start things off, I used a piece of patterned paper from Recollections. This one came from an aptly named paper pad called ‘Magic Hour.’ So pretty! I started stamping out some butterflies from Butterfly Sentiments 2.0 around where I knew I wanted my picture to go. I applied some opaque white gesso thinly around this area as well.
I used a few stamp sets including the Unity collaboration ‘hit the brick’ background stamp to add dimension and depth to my background. Once I was happy with the stamped images, I used the Elegant Egg stencil (this was a Stencil of the Month) and some Texture Paste to add dimension. Once this was dry, I used Aqua Pigments in Fuchsia, Blue-Green, and Violet to add color to the stenciled areas. I blotted up the excess with a paper towel.
I added some cheesecloth behind my photo for a little added interest. I love that texture! I also matted my photo with a piece of the Watercolor Galaxy Paper – it’s so gorgeous with this color palette!
I added in some adhesive pearls and a few pretty Prima flowers to make the layout come together a little more. Gotta have the embellishments, right!? I especially love the gorgeous butterfly!
I also used the lowercase alphabet + fill stamp set for my sentiment. I put together one of my favorite quotes from the movie: ‘It’s only forever. Not long at all.’ I heat embossed this with Alabaster Embossing Powder and inked the edges.
I hope you love the layout! Let me know what you think in the comments down below. Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created as well!
