Hello Everybody and thank you for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday! I have a really fun and colorful layout for you today that I was totally inspired to create after seeing a circus themed party collection at my local party store!! I knew I had to use this photo of my oldest daughters kindergarten class’s “Clowning Around” spirit day from last year.
I started, as I usually do, with a piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock. I splattered the background with Pretty In Pink, Heidi Ho Blue, and Pink Stilettos coloringz from Shimmerz. I marked out where my photo will be and then used my Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil to create the stars. I used the Dreamscicle and Lemon Drop dazzlerz through the stencil. I didn’t clean the stencil between colors, allowing some of it to mix and create a new color!
While I was waiting for the background to dry, I started on my photo layers. Using scraps from stash, I used the colors from the photo to help me choose the colors for the papers. I misted a white doily from the shop with the 2 pink mists I used on the background to create a pink one and layered them with the photo cluster also.
When the background was dry, I adhered the photo cluster to the page. I outlined each of the strips the photo is on with my black pen and added my journaling, Chunky Cork Stars were the first fun embellishments I added around the page in clusters. Wood Veneer stars joined the cork, as well as some of the pretty yellow and teal sequins from the Believe In You sequin mix. I broke out some of my new colors of Nuvo drops and added some dots into the mix. I added the title “Class Clowns” to my photo and I was done! This is such a FUN and COLORFUL layout, inspired by a PLATE!!!
So, Look around this week, at colors, patterns, anything and take it to a page. Make It Yours. And come back next time to join me for another MAKE IT YOURS MONDAY!!!
