Hi, Dani here today, to share my latest layout using the 2016 October Clique Kit. First, can I just say how EXCITED I am to be here with you Today!! I Still can’t believe it!? 🙂
Since I was just a tad bit nervous about my very first post with Clique Kits, I decided to use a sketch from my Pinterest, as a jumping off point.
I knew I wanted to play with some mixed media, so I pulled out my Shimmerz, Faber Castell, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks. They go so well with this kit..I think I may have squealed with joy as I was putting together this layout. I’m absolutely in love with the patterns and colors of this kit, as you can see below in my first closeup.
I mixed Spun Sugar Shimmerz with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink to get the perfect color and dimension. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and applied it in 3 different areas. Then I mixed Boysenberry and Blueberry Gelatos together to get the exact shade of blue I desired. I used my water brush to paint and blend colors on the embellishment clusters.
I discovered this amazing place, almost in my backyard, if I had a backyard; ha..ha..ha.. Believe it or not, it was near a shopping center. This was an unexpected surprise and made me think about the saying “Stop and smell the roses”. It was so peaceful that it made me reflect on all the good things in my life and Celebrate Today.
I think the little details really makes the page, like adding thread, splatters of paint, and enamel dots. I’m a little bit obsessed with adding pop dots and layers to my layouts which really gives it a 3D effect.
Sometimes, no make that most times, I find it hard to scrap about myself. So I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone with this layout of me. Being scrapbookers we find it hard to scrap about ourselves because we’re always behind the camera, instead of in front of it.
I hope I have inspired you to get creative and maybe even a little messy!! Until tomorrow, happy scrapping!!
