Hi sweet friends!
So good to see you again. Today it's my turn again to inspire you with one of our amazing kits!
This layout is made with the gorgeous and fun Lucky Me Sampler Kit. This kit has bright and bold colors and is full of fun embellishments!
For this layout I started with a base of water color paint in a dark blue. The Vivia water colors are so pretty and match perfectly! I used a broad flat brush and didn't make it too wet so you still see the strokes.
I backed the photo with several different design papers from the kit. I never cut with a paper trimmer, I always cut by hand and distress the edges. I don't mind crooked lines haha.
After the matting of the photo it's time for the embellishments! Always the fun part (all is fun but still). I love to get out all those tiny bits and start layering them.
The little bits and pieces are so bright and fun and all mix so well together!
To finish everything off I splattered some black paint.
I hope you got some inspiration and would love to see your creations in our Facebook group!
I´m back with a quick step-by-step to help you with art journaling. Let´s keep it simply but add a “new” way to make backgrounds.
Last time (in this POST HERE) I shared a background made with distress ink, but today we will be using collage paper.
