Scapbooking with paint, stamps & washi today!

Today, I’m bringing you TWO very different layouts I created with the same paper theme set. Those who know me know that I’m a big fan of My Minds Eye. I also love using different mediums when I scrapbook, including acrylic paint and distressing with water.

First, here’s a look at the My Minds Eye Honey Theme Set. Isn’t it sweet and sassy at the same time? It’s perfect for scrapping my girls, who often display both qualities at the same time.

Here’s my first sassy layout of our daughter Hannah. I usually opt for the B side of papers too, but I wanted to reflect on Hannah’s personality, which is truly sassy sweet. I used several of the papers on this sassy sweet layout about Hannah. I added the matching washi tape and stamped around the main photo using the coordinating honeycomb stamp. That stamp is awesome!! I love that you can keep stamping by matching the edges up to create a larger honeycomb stamped area. Such a clever design! The title is also from MME, but comes from the Indie Chic collection.


Next up is our sweet little Abigail at about 4 months. You can see that I brushed some white acrylic paint across areas of the pink doily paper. When I first put this layout together, the contrast was to much and it didn’t match the mood of my photo. So, the white paint came out to create this more dreamy effect. I used my trusty finger to smear the paint around the grey and white floral print photo mat, as well as around the edges of the entire layout. I added some ZVA Bling, Stampin UP! brads and the small floral coordinating MME stamp.

The other technique I used on this layout was curling the edges of the grey floral paper using a little bit of water. I simply wet my fingers and gently rolled the edges of the paper. You can do this a little or a lot, depending on the effect you want. Just a little rolling gave this layout the look that I wanted.

Here you can see the rolled edges of the grey floral paper and the white acrylic paint underneath.

  1. Jody, I love both of these! I really like the way you softened the paper with the white paint. Great idea! I will need to try that!

    1. Thank you so much!! Using paint on LO’s is one of fav things to do when I need to tone it down. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. You know I love both of these! Such a contrast between the trendy chevrons and the pink/yellow brightness to the soft baby page. Great blog post to show that. I especially love the black silhouette flowers stamped over the patterned paper! If MME has a design team callout you have to go for it!
