Begin Each Day With A Little Sun And Make Your Own Sunshine July 2, 2016 07:00

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and I'm so excited to be back for a third term at Just Nick Digital Cut Files. I love Nicole's designs!

A little about me....I live in Alberta, Canada near the beautiful rocky mountains with my husband Rick, a son Clayton and a very spoiled kitty named Sheldon.  I also have two grown up children, a daughter Shannon and a son Brandon.  They are both married and live a few hundred miles away. 

Scrapbooking is my favorite hobby not just for the memory keeping, but it's so therapeutic to spend time in my studio playing with pretty paper.  

For my layout, I used the Doodle Daisy Background.  Daisies are some of my favorite flowers.  


For my layout, I cut the Doodle Daisy Background with my Cameo on white card stock and backed some of the flower shapes with plaid patterned paper.  For the white card stock background, I scribbled some Gelatos, which are sticks of pigmented color that remind me of the shape of a lipstick, and diluted them with water and a paintbrush and painted the background.  When the background was dry, I added some blue splatters.

For the solid flower shapes, I scribbled some Gelato on the shapes and used my finger to smudge the color.  There is no need to add water when doing the smudge technique. Finally, I added some enamel dots, flair buttons and chipboard embellishments to the middle of the flowers.

I hope you are inspired to try a background with some Gelatos.  They are so much fun! Have a great day!
