Scrapbooking Top 50 - May

 A fun tic tac toe colour challenge board at Scrapbooking Top 50 this month!


As you can see, I went with a few of my favourite colours in a row: aqua, pink and yellow.


Here is my page and some close ups:
I used my star stencil from Flutterby Designs to create the texture background. I also gesso'd the background so I could use watercolour paints, which is how I added the pink and yellow. A few splatters here and there always works! Then I use the acrylic paint from Flutterby Designs to add the touches of aqua paint on the edges and also to paint the stars.




 
You can see in these close up, some of the layers I used, with punchinella, raffia, hessian, stickers and staples.
 
The highlights are the handmade bits from my good friends:
Banner and White Emoji from Charms Creations
Pretty spotty pin and yellow leaf from Rainbow Splendour
Love heart from Burdys Embellies.
 

 
Thanks for looking, and thanks for a fun challenge.
 
Amanda
