Onto my prep-work and layout for today!! (P.S. I’ll have another layout on the Clique Kits Blog this Friday with more The Cut Shoppe goodness!!) I started with a few extra supplies, pictured below. Then cut these fabulous cut files using my Neenah white card stock. Next, I sprayed them with my Studio Calico Heirloom Blue Mr. Huey’s and let them air dry. I just love this color!! While the die cuts were drying, I created a fun green watercolor by mixing the Heirloom Blue with Sunshine and about a teaspoon of water. I played with the colors on my card stock base… just a little so the card stock didn’t get too wet. I could have used a watercolor paper here, but just decided to use my Neenah. I also splattered some ink right onto my background using the same colors.
Next, I built my layout on top of my watercolor background. I added some fun clouds by stamping right onto my background with the fabulous chalkboard paint included in the Clique Kits Study Abroad kit!! I used an Amy Tangerine stamp and masked off the sun-part of the stamp for all but one of the paint-stamped images on my layout. Then I used the the Heirloom Blue Mr. Huey’s mixed with a little bit of water and painted inside my clouds. I love how they really pop off my page!
And now for some more close-ups of the details. Sequins, die cuts and origami hearts… oh my!!
