I am very excited to participate in the Scrap Your Scraps June Blog/Video Hop hosted by Tori Bissell. (Link to her Channel)
For my layout today I am scrapping a Black and White photo of my daughter and her uncle's dog "Baxter". I pulled out several scraps of paper from my scrapbox and I am also using my Fiskars Large Hexagon Punch to cut out some shapes!
I then take the Hexagons and cut the pieces in half and match them on top of another Hexagon just giving each shape more color and character. I glue them together using Glossy Accents that I have added into a fine tip applicator bottle. I decided to arrange the shapes around my page where I felt they looked nice and gave a good flow to the page, laying a few of them in clusters as well as allowing some to fall of the edge of the page.
Before I adhere them down, I am going to take my Faber-Castell Gel Sticks and add them to a piece of plastic packaging with some water and do the "Smooshing or Packaging" Technique in the areas where the Hexagons will be placed giving a watercolor effect to my background.
I add several layers of Scraps behind my photo, some are the papers that I have used to punch out my Hexagons and a couple of other papers are from my Scraps. I layered them offset creating a "Wonky" look, showing a small bit of each pattern paper and none of them quite line up.
Before I stick my photo down I decide to take some foam leaf stickers that I purchased on clearance from Walmart a couple of years ago, I find this to be a very frugal way of adding dimension to my layout as well as creating a bit of a shadow on the page, this also allows me to stick embellishments easily behind my photo.
From my stash I pull out a couple of diecuts from the Amy Tangerine "Bits" Collection pack as well as some stickers from the "Jot" brand from The Dollar Tree. For my Title the word "Cute" comes from the Crate Paper "Wonder" collection. I also used some of the "Studio G" alphabet letters to finish off my Title. I added a Bow Embellishment from the "Jot" brand as well.
To finish off my Layout I add some Paint Splatters from my Homemade Ink Sprays!!
