I hope you all had a great Christmas, and Santa was good to you.
Today I wanted to do something nice and simple. I've noticed, I rarely use my mists the way they were originally intended lol. I cant even remember the last time I actually just sprayed mist through a stencil. So i wanted to show you that you can use them in a simple way, and get a fantastic background.
I'm scrapping a picture of my niece's first Santa photo. She surprised us all and absolutely loved visiting Santa. We honestly thought she would hate the experience, but she laughed the whole time. So I'm scrapping this for her album, which is an 8.5 x 11. I decided to use 3x4 photo for this layout. I love the size for the smaller layouts.
I've mentioned before, my preferred Christmas colours are red and gold, so for this layout I used the Love colour spray, and Bling Colour Shimmer Spray. Perfect for Christmas.
I used the Large That Way stencil from the August release. I wanted a staggered sprinkling of stars across my layout, so I made sure to mask off my layout to avoid over spray. I used the Love colour spray for this.
Then for some Gold- Bling Colour Shimmer Spray splats for that perfect touch of gold. Very christmassy. I find it almost impossible to get a picture that shows you just how shimmery this looks, unless you can get some natural light to reflect on them.
And that was it for my background. Nice and simple, but a very striking look. Then it was time to add my photo, a title and some small embellishments. I stayed with the red and gold colour scheme throughout, and kept the embellishing very simple.
A close up of my layers behind my photo, and so you can see just how cute my baby niece is lol.
So I hope you liked my layout, and can see just how easy it is to use mixed media products on a layout.
hope you had a merry Christmas, and took lots of christmassy pics to scrap. Till next time lovelies
