Happy Technique Tuesday! This September on Technique Tuesdays we are focusing on hidden elements! Adding hidden elements are great for adding journaling you may not want everyone to see, bringing in a duplicate or similar photo, or bringing an interactive element to your layout. Today Jess is sharing a process video of a Halloween-themed layout that includes a hidden photo. This page includes alcohol inks, die-cutting, painting, and more! Check out her process in the video below!
This page began with the alcohol ink background page. I filled a 9"x12" yupo page with ink and blew it around with the Tim Holtz blower. Next, I cut out the Ghost Town #2 and Spider Web Dies on black cardstock. I used my finger to apply luster wax on these black houses to help them stand out from the background a bit more.
Next, I painted some white lace black, and glued twigs onto my layout using 3D Gloss Gel. The black paper behind the twigs looked too plain at this point, so I splattered on Dylusions Black Shimmer Paint and added sequin stars. I used embroidery floss to add the Halloween Tokens onto the twigs so it would look like they are hanging from it.
I attached the photo flip by using washi tape on the top of the photo both on the front and backside. I love how this page turned out and think it is so fun! I think the alcohol ink page, twigs, and photo flip work together to create an interesting page.

I've been taking quite a few photos of flowers here at the end of summer, and I wanted to make a scrapbook layout to capture my bittersweet feelings about saying goodbye to this season as the days get shorter and we head into fall. The Wild Asparagus line from My Mind's Eye is just right for stories about nature. I matted my photo on the pink paper for contrast since I used the muted sage green plaid paper for my background. I hand-cut a big circle from the golden-yellow text paper to provide a home for my journaling and title.
The sticker pack includes an alphabet, and I used that for the word "summer" in my title, pulling coordinating alphas from my stash for the other two words. I journaled with my script typewriter on one of the pretty journal cards from this collection. I grounded the layout and reinforced the theme of my journaling with a broad strip of the text paper along the bottom of the page.
My embellishment clusters were made with stamps from the collection (leaves, bird, and lemon) and black ink to stand out against the background. I love this stamp set! The bird, especially, has won my heart! Each cluster also includes stickers and enamel dots. I applied the dot stripe washi underneath my title and at the top and bottom of the layout to draw the eye diagonally across the page. The bottom cluster includes additional washi tape and some paper that I altered with an edge punch.
Making the layout with this beautiful collection was a soothing, end-of-summer farewell ritual! As I say in my journaling, I'm comforted knowing that fall, another lovely season, is just around the corner.
Hello everyone, I’m Jil Larson, a new member of the design team. I’m excited to share my projects with you! I’ve been scrapbooking and art journaling for many years now. I first started memory keeping when my nieces (now in their 20s) were little girls and I was looking for a way to tell stories about them and the art they created. From there, my love for this wonderful hobby grew and developed. As a life-long diary and notebook lover, I’ve also recently been enjoying creative play in sketchbooks and journals.
