Scrapbooking Top 50 - February

Hi everyone!

I loved this sketch over at STB50 this month....



While I was helping my friend Emily step outside of her comfort zone and "smoosh" colour to a bag with the plastic technique... I decided that I could use the same technique to create a page for this sketch.

Background created with Colour Blast!
I used the gesso on the background, then on a sheet of plastic, I sprayed water and sprinkled some Colour Shimmer Dusts. More water, and then I pressed the white cardstock into the colour.

I also added a layer of Colour Paste in Sunshine (through an awesome Flutterbys stencil), and some sprays of Colour Spray in Saffron, and some splatters of Colour Shimmer Spray in Just Blue and Colour Spray in Roadbase black.

I did this page whilst scrapping with my old scrap buddies. We were stash busting, and my friend Chris pulled out her old Making Memories rub on letters. Man I love these things! After all these years, they still work, and I added a few to the background and for the title.

(Note: please excuse the typo I am now just seeing in the journaling, clearly Jessie is firing Nerf bullets not buttons, must had buttons on my mind! LOL!)


For embellishments: I used 2Crafty Framed Chained Circles, a Charms Creations emoji, and flair, buttons, enamel dots all from D-lish Scraps.

 

 
Thanks for looking,
 
Amanda

This is a really cool, fun, bright layout! I find I'm using that 'smooshing effect' on ore and more of my layouts too - it's fun to do! Thanks for joining in at SBT50!
