Hello crafty friends! Can you believe it's the last day of July already?! I surely don't. Today I have a 12x12'' layout to share with you. And it's messy, eclectic and fun and the cool thing is: I used a lot of leftover embellishments from a lot of kits.
As you can see, I also used some stamps and acrylic paint. It was so much fun to create this layout. It was a real freestyle project, with no concept and idea beforehand. I just started by playing around with a little paint. Then I put together all the scraps I still had. I love the black and white "Little Black Dress" kit, because you can mix and match it with everything. I combined two papers from this kit with a leftover paper by Pink Paislee and used some vellum from Crate Paper. Then I attached them to white cardstock.
I paired my photo with a pocket card from Pretty Little Studio's "Color me Happy". The balloons are also from this collection, the other one is by Pebbles. I used a photo of my son on the slide, so the layout needed to be colorful and fun with lots of cute details. And how adorable is that clip?
I used some leftover die-cuts from the Rosie's Studio Kit which you can find here. All the white embellishments are from the "Little Black Dress" Kit. The clouds, sun and rainbow are by Pretty Little Studio. The glasses, florals and the cat are by Pebbles.
The stamp I used is by Flora & Fauna and unfortunately not available in the shop anymore. But I can recommend you this stamp kit right here. I love how the stamps resemble the handwritten paper on the right. And I personally think that stamps are must when working with mixed media backgrounds. They add a cool effect and make the layout much more interesting. It's all in the details, right?
