Sharing A Layout

Happy Saturday! Today I sat down and thought I would just get messy and do a playful, artsy, colourful layout.  There was a photo that was speaking to me to scrapbook of my daughter's girlfriend Kelsi, who is such a sweetheart. I gathered some acrylic paints, mists, stencils, stamps, paper and embellishments and this is what I came up with.

The title is made of vellum and cut with the Silhouette Cameo and then gesso was placed over it and then outlined with a yellow gel pen and a black pen for more definition
I used Tim Holtz stamps with paint and a chicken wire stencil with modeling paste and Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mists to spray over the stencil.

I used a butterfly border punch for the yellow border

The photo is matted with patterned paper and I layered some embellishments along the left side of the photo.

Sometimes it's just nice to create with no plan or sketch.  It was fun and that's all that matters.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
