Hi everybody! This week, Jillibean Soup and Just Nick Studio are partnering up to bring you lots of inspiring layouts to get your mojo flowing. I wanted to create a mixed media layout so I could paint on my transparency words! Can I just say one thing, I love these things. They are so fun and they look great on just about any project. Amazingly, they do not take that long to dry. I sprayed the background with three different Coloringz by Shimmerz Paints in the shades of No Yokino, Heidi Ho Blue and Don't Citron Me. I took the colors right from the photo. The heart digital die-cuts are from Just Nick Studio's shop (Remember).
Initially, I was only going to include a photo with very few embellishments, however, I found that once I started applying embellishments and papers, I couldn't stop. I just LOVE how this turned out. It's such a happy layout. I let the transparency word die-cut and sticker letters tell the story. Notice how I balanced the top and bottom of the layout by adding a few hearts and butterflies? I think it really makes a difference. Otherwise, the layout would have looked like it was unbalanced.
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Die-Cuts: Stickers: Veneer: Jillibean Soup, Digital Cut files: Just Nick Studio, Paint: Ali Edwards, Coloringz: Shimmerz Paints.
