You and Me

Hello everyone. I created this layout for Bad Girls Couture using the September kit. Today, I want to share with you, how I created this fun, colorful layout. The Twinkling H20's are so vibrant on this layout. It just screams fun!
 
Before, I started doing anything with this layout, I coated the white cardstock with gesso and let it dry overnight. Once dried, I splashed the pink Twinkling H20's onto the cardstock. I used a black Sharpie to draw a 1/2" border around the layout.
 
 
I coated the chipboard alphas using the gesso. Once dry, I splashed blue and pink watercolor paints on them and let them dry.
 
 
I matted the collage of photos using a few pieces of patterned paper then I hand-cut the hot air balloon and photo corners from the Crate Paper and colored them using markers.
 
 
 
 
I recycled the packaging from the Crate Paper embellishments to use as a fun border for the bottom of my photo collage. Since I was running low on embellishments, I stamped flowers onto patterned paper then used scissors to cut it out. I used a foam square to pop it up off the page. Also, I painted the Prima flower using the Twinkling H20's so that the flower would blend in more with the layout.
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting today!
