The Crafty Maven Getaway: Art Party Friday

Hello Friends. I was on The Crafty Maven Getaway Channel this past Friday with a Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout. On The Crafty Maven Getaway we have a weekly Inspiration board. This is the one I followed this week:

I loved the blues in this peace and the pop of red. I decided to recreate the look of the sky and the water in the photo I was scrapbooking. The photo was taken in St. Marteen this past summer. We took a week long cruise and this was one of the beautiful stops. I used some acrylic gloss medium to create some texture, my idea was to create the look of waves and the ocean. I used some spray mist in three different shades of blue and created an ombre effect while mimicking the photo. I added a few pops of red with some simple embellishing and a border around the whole page. I really love how this turned out.

Crafty Techniques: Ombré Effect on a Budget

  What is Ombré? Ombré: having colors or tones that shade into each other usually graduated from light to dark. As most of you know, the Ombré trend is really catching on. I totally understand why. I see it everywhere. At any hair salon It is the most requested style. I’ve seen it at the fabric store, tons of fabrics with an Ombré effect are on the shelves. This new craze is even hitting the Scrapbooking/crafting world. I recently saw Ombré ink pads. How cool is that? I’ve created this simple technique using the Ombré effect which can be used not only on paper but on fabric, wood or any other surface that can be painted. I am constantly in search of budget friendly projects. This effect can be created with just few bucks worth of acrylic paint or fabric paint if that is your material of choice. I hope you will all try this technique. I sure can’t wait to create a layout with this background. Check out my process video: Thanks for stopping by.Please be sure to follow me for notifications of fun stuff to come.  XOXO~ Katty



Hello friends,

I wanted to share the layout I made with this fun Ombré background that I created. Unfortunately I do not have a process  video for this layout. It was made at an NSD(National Scrapbooking Day) Crop I attended earlier this month. I do however have a Layout share video where I share all of the layouts that I completed at that crop and I give a brief explanation of each one. This page was so much fun to make. I am documenting a concert I attended with my stepdaughter last year. We had a great time and I really wanted to document that night. Here is the link to the Layout share video:
