Hi Clique Kits fans,
Magali here today with you to share a double page mixing paint and paper. With paint, it’s easy to add an additional colour to your layout. Don’t hesitate to add a colour to the combo created with the papers from your kit. It allows you to add more diversity in your album. Here is my double layout.
To create this layout, I’ve cut the black dot paper 8 1/2 x 11 and then cut it in two parts. I’ve placed one of the section in the lower part of my left page, and the other one in the upper part of my right page.
Then, I’ve used gesso to add a beautiful texture at the edge of the paper. To add the indigo colour, I’ve used some drops of liquid ink, on which I’ve sprayed water to let the ink spread over the textured gesso.
When you use water, you need to let the paper dry and then to place some books on it to avoid warping of the paper.
I’ve cut some butterflies and placed them in line. As you can see above, I’ve stamped a butterfly under the green little butterfly. I love the volume it gives to the die cut. The word “Star” is cut in the corrugated paper of the kit. I’ve used letter dies to cut my title in it.
And here is a last picture of my layout…
Any question about my process? Don’t hesitate to ask in the comments!
Have a wonderful week!
