I created this fun and simplistic single page layout to feature the Kraft paper as a background. I worked straight onto what-must-be-my-favourite-design-ever! Here’s a step x step Anatomy of the layout and how I created it.

Step 1

Apply a generous amount of Gesso to the background using a pallet knife. Let the Gesso dry completely or use a heat gun to speed up the process.
