Hello Ck fans it’s Leeann here. Today I’m sharing how I created this textured background using up some left over alphas. And I’m using the January Alegria kit because it’s fancy and gorgeous of course!
So lets get started – I’m using the pinkfresh studios alphas ( happy things) leftover from the October funfetti 2015 kit. You can used any alphas you have leftover for this! I randomly place them on a piece of white cardstock. Applied two coats of gesso and allowed each coat to dry.
Once dry I used my water colour paints. I created a pool with the black watercolor paint and brushed over the letters. Add flicks and splats. Once happy with the amount of color blot with paper towel to soak the excess off. Allow to dry. I love the result of the letters they pop under the color!
I added some detail by randomly machine stitching zig zags in a bright yellow thread. I love using my stamps to add pops of designs. I have an assortment that I go too all the time.
Once you are happy with all the mixed media layers grab the January Alegria kit and get scrappy.
and here’s my page. I loved using the teal and yellow puffy stickers they really pop against the black!
Well I hope today’s post was fun and you have ago at this one. It was great having you pop in and I hope you continue to come back as all the girls have amazing inspiring projects to share with you using our totally awesome Clique kits!
