How to add Layered Textures to a Scrapbook Layout

How to add Layered Textures on a Layout

Do you enjoy adding lots of layered textures to your Layouts?  Are you sometimes in need of some texture layering ideas or inspiration?  In this post I am sharing a Process Video and Six Ideas for how I used a variety of different textures and layered them on top of each other to create this Layout of my two little boys.  They are both book lovers, so I thought this photo of them reading books would be suitable to Kaisercraft’s new Documented Collection.

Step 1 – Texture Paste and Template for Layered Textures

The first step I take when wanting to add layered textures to a Layout is to use some Texture Paste and a Template.  Kaisercraft have a huge range of Templates and they release new ones every month to co-ordinate with their current collections.  For this Layout I chose to use IT459 Stencil Words Template with a mix of white paint and texture paste.  This provides a good base for the layering.

Step 2 – Fussy Cut Paper Shapes for Layered Textures

The second way I added Textured Layering was to choose some papers from the Documented Collection.  I fussy cut these papers to suit the design of my Layout.  I chose the Papers below:

P2465 – Documented Pencils

P2468 – Documented Desktop

Step 3 – Use Decorative Dies for Layered Textures

The third way you can add layered Texture to a Layout is by cutting some Decorative Dies.  In this Layout I used Two Decorative Dies by Kaisercraft as shown below:

DD807 – Mini Card Pocket

DD798 Cut-Out Textures

Decorative Dies can be so very useful in creating substance to a Layout.  I rely on them heavily.

Step 4 – Different Types of Adhesive for Layered Textures

In most of my projects I am often using a variety of types of adhesives depending on what I am sticking down.  In this Layout I use the following Kaisercraft products:

 

T314 Double Sided Tape

T301 Glue Stick

T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

LDB1056 Foam Tape

Step 5 – Embellishment for Layered Textures

Probably my favourite part of the Layout is to use lots of different embellishments to decorate.  Collectables and Wooden Flourishes are perfect for adding Texture to a Layout.  I don’t like to go without these products:

Step 6 – Stamping for Layered Textures

I left the stamping to last with this Layout…but you can pop it in wherever feels most comfortable to you.  I used a Black Ink Pad and the Documented Clear Stamp Set to add lots of decorative Stamping to my finished Layout.

These are some of my ideas for adding Layered Texture to a Layout.  Do you have some that you use? I would love to hear.

Happy Crafting,
