Hello I have a super fun and fast layout for you today. It is time to get messy, ok not really I used a pallet knife. I used the inspiration piece with 2 of the pictures.
The Paint stripes were the first thing. I did Paint stripes on this Mexico 8 1/2 x 11 layout. I am a big fan of Art Anthrology’s paints. I used 4 colors: Patina Seafoam Stone Effects, Patina Teal Velvet, Metal Effects Gold, Sorbet Coral. They provided not only color but different textures and bling to the page. To add an additional element I splattered the following mists: Tattered Angels Frozen lake, Heidi Swapp (gold, patina and salmon).
I am using white cardstock from Joanns and it is so thick. It doesn’t buckle. I will warn you that if you are using this cardstock to cut cutfiles on a cricut that you need to put it on the poster board setting.
The next thing that I pulled from the inspiration piece is the section that looks like folded paper. I use 4 pieces of paper. I folded them in half and stapled ends together. Layered and glued them under my photo. This photo is of Harry’s (amazing restaurant we ate at in Mexico) This is how you order your steak. Crazy!!!
There is minimal embellishing because I didn’t want to detract from the paint. I decided the best thing would be color blocking with the embellishments. The embellishments that I chose were some puffy stickers from Paper House Production and stickers from Pink Paislee’s Summer lights.
