Today I want to share a layout I recently created using the Clique Kits February 2018 kit featuring Crate Paper's Good Vibes collection and two Ink Road stamps sets (Fur Babies & Bork).
I first prepared my white card stock with gesso. I knew I wanted to play with a little mixed media to drive my layout. I added some acrylic paints to the background and didn't think while I applied them.
The key like I mentioned above is not thinking about it. Use a dry brush, use a wet brush, your fingers, or even an old credit card to spread the paint around.
After I prepared the background, I was searching through my paper stash and found the Clique Kits February 2018 kit and thought it would work perfectly with this colorful background.
So I started tearing and cutting the 12" x 12" papers from the Crate Paper collection to layer on the background under my photo.
I used the matching ephemera, which also came in the Clique Kits kit and added it around the photo (and on top of the photo).
To back the photo, I used a paper bag that came with one of my Ink Road Stamp orders. Inside were sequins, but the bag was too cute to not keep for a future project.
A big part of this layout was also driven by Ink Road Stamps as well. I couldn't wait to use those cute puppy stamps on this layout and the "Fur Babies" stamps helped finish out my title.
And here is the final results. I trimmed down the painted background piece to 11 x 11 and mounted it to a plain white 12 x 12 piece of card stock, popping it up to add more dimension.
Thanks for stopping today! #Createfreely
