Saturday Showcase - Sir Vagabond Aviator Background Papers

Good morning!

Laura here with today's Saturday Showcase.  Today I am featuring the Sir Vagabond Aviator background papers.

Those papers are gorgeous!

Step 1 - Trim papers to 1 - 12x12, 1 - 11.5 x 11.5, 2-12 x 6
Step 2 - Tear one of the 12x6 like the photos above
Step 3 - Prep background paper with clear gesso

Step 4 - Use your favorite stencil with texture paste and heat set
Step 5 - Color your stenciled image with powders or mists.  I used the Prima Finnabair Art Ingredients Mica Powder Set.

Step 6 - Adhere papers as shown using cardboard or 3D tape to the top sheet 

Step 7 - Paint your chipboard - I used paint that made by mixing the Prima Mica Powder and clear gesso

Step 8 - Layer your powders over the images then seal with gel medium

Step 9 -Adhere everything together and add any embellishments and your title that you wish.  I added some Prima Painted Floral Flowers, some art stones, gems, and flowers from my stash

Here are some close ups

Earlier this week I also created a layout for the Challenge using the gorgeous Stamperia paper. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you.



  1. Gorgeous layers on your stunning layout!!

  2. I absolutely LOVE the way you create these layouts, Laura!
    I can imagine you; sitting at your desk and papers flying easily through your hands as you tear, color, and arrange these BEAUTIFUL pieces of art!

    1. Thank you so much! Yeah I make a big mess when I am creating lol!
