Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout I created for Art Party Friday on The Crafty Maven Getaway YouTube channel. I love this weeks fun citrus inspired mood board. I knew I wanted to create a fun background.
I began with some American Crafts White textured cardstock and some of my Shimmerz Paints (if you make any purchases at Shimmerz Paints mention my name at checkout and you’ll receive a FREE product.) I used Coloringz in No Yoking and Don’t Citron me. I also used a Spritz in 4 Leaf Clover. I did the packaging technique as well as some stenciling with a small stencil called Bokeh Fragments by The Crafters Workshop . I used the stencil as a stamp as well. I added some splatters in all of the colors as well as in black using black India Ink.
I chose to use a picture from a few years back of my two boys and my nephew. It was taken at a Birthday Party at a park towards the end of the day! They were exhausted from running around, they weren’t too excited for photos. I decided my title would be an appropriately sarcastic “Hooray.” I used a few sheets of Patterned paper from the Studio Calico Lemon Lush 12×12 paper pad. I took one of the papers that had a lot of florals on it and fussy cut the florals. I then clustered them in two ares of my layout. I scattered some of the smaller ones around.
I also scattered around some of the Pinkfresh Studio Felicity Collection puffy stickers and some of the sticky back brads from the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness Collection. As a finishing touch I added clusters of three small black enamel dots in various sizes.
Lastly, I added a lime green piece of patterned paper from my stash to mat the whole layout. I also distressed the edges of the white cardstock all the way around.
