Hey and hello and happy Monday scrappy friends!!
Today I am playing along with the March challenges. Well, the March challenge, both have been rolled into one which was a bit different and fun!
Here is my take
And here is my process video
As I’m certain you noticed, I ended up flipping the page and am really happy with my end result.
Again, I’ve started with one of those super cool Ella & Viv papers, “Cardinal and Gold” to be precise and built my layout on top of that. I chose that paper because it included almost all of the colours from the mood board – the only colours missing were the pink and green but I ticked both of those boxes, one with messy mixed media and the other with, of course my Minc 😉
I’ve used some Dylusions acrylic paint in Polished Jade with my silicone brush to apply my first messy layer on the background, sticking fairly closely to the sketch.
In line with the sketch my next layer was some watered down black gesso. I found a cool little dropper tool that had been buried in my stash but you could very easily use a big paint brush or a pipette to get the same effect by splattering from high above the page.
I added some pink as a mat under my 3 photos using some of the Heidi Swapp Minc cardstock. I’ve added more pink using some of the Heidi Swapp pink foil on the title – using the Minc Alpha Stickers – and the sub-title – using one of the Jumbo Words.
With the background being so bright, colourful and busy I didn’t feel like I needed to add much more so I added my journalling which I typed up in strips and 2 of the Heidi Swapp Sequin Shapes – Disco Arrows and one of the Cocoa Vanilla Studios You Rock Rubber Charm pieces.
I have added 2 dates onto this page – one the date the photo’s were taken and the other the date the page was made/journalling done. I think I will pop this in his current album so the journalling continues in chronological order.
Make sure you play along with our challenge this month for your chance to win a store voucher. Head over here to the FB page to upload your entry to the correct album. I can’t wait to see how you interpret this month’s 2 challenges in 1!!
Until next time, happy scrapping!!
