Hello!!! It’s Donna here and I’m very excited to be back on the CK Design Team!
For my first post and project, I will be sharing a layout using the April 2017 kit, “Jellybean”.
I love the foiled word arts in some of the papers and that’s the first inspiration on this layout.I didn’t plan to have a monochromatic layout, honestly. I ended up choosing teal/blue with black colors so that’s what I went with.
I fussy cut the words you + me (and later on couldn’t find the “+” cut out so it didn’t make into this layout).
I adhered the floral cut files using gel medium. Then I used watercolors (blue, black) and PITT pencils to color the cut files. I started with the light blue colors first and then mixed the black watercolor later on, creating a grayish blue shade.
I also used watercolors as ink to stamp the word “love”. Scattered it around the layout. The stamp is from Latina Crafter. I scattered the hearts and stars from the foam word stickers by Freckled Fawn. And did the same with the black enamel dots from Freckled Fawn as well.
I have a problem with my printer but good thing I got this 1 photo printed correctly. I didn’t want to just throw the rest away so I used them and layered them like you see here. I also love using layers of messy thread to add a bit of texture
I distressed the edges of the paper in the middle a little bit after cutting about half an inch to make it a little bit smaller. Then I used the blue/green stripe patterned paper as a mat.
That’s all from me today. I hope you liked it!
And see you again tomorrow!
