"New do", by Amanda H.

Hi all,

Today I am sharing a soft and pretty layout of my oldest daughter.  Here's a sneak......


Now let's look at how I created it!

I wanted a painted background. I know I could buy every colour of acrylic paint in the world, but really all I need is some Gesso and Colour Artist Inks! Seriously, it is so easy to mix your own paints, to create your own colours to match any layout.

I took some White Heavy Gesso and mixed two colours - using Colour Artist Inks in Marine and Berry. I only used a few drops of each, wanted to keep soft colours for my layout.

Using an old credit card, I swiped the Marine paint mix down the page.
Then, I swiped the soft Berry paint mix across the page.
Once the paint was dry, I added some Colour Paste in Singin the Blues through a stencil.
I wanted to add some layers under the photo. I found some white tissue paper and sprayed it generously with Colour Shimmer Spray in Blush.
Look at the lovely shine once it was dried! 

I sprayed another piece of tissue paper, this time using Colour Shimmer Spray in Singin the Blues.

Next I coloured a Charms Creations DIY banner. These are made of white calico and are so easy to colour with Colour Blast products. I sprayed it with water first and then hit it with a few sprays of Colour Shimmer Spray in Blush.
While the Colour Shimmer Spray in Blush was out, I made some splatters with a paintbrush on the background.

I used a Shimmer Brush Marker in Clear to paint some sparkles on the circular die cut frame I was using.
Lastly, I painted the white sticker word "do" for the title using Colour Artist Ink in Marine.
Let's look at how my page came together..

Love the colours and layers of the background.
The layers of tissue paper add depth and texture!

Thanks for looking today!
