‘Capturing the Moment” Scrapbook Layout Tutorial by Amy Voorthuis

Hello Dear Friends,

It’s Amy here with you today and I would like to show you a layout I made with some of the color sprays in this month’s color challenge. I left out the pink tones, and used the pretty Summer Lovin’Sun, Greased Lightnin’Green & Tilt-a-Wheel Teal for my layout.

I have a little tutorial on how I began my page but because I always scrap at night those pictures are not of a very high quality. Sorry for that!

I always start with a back page that I always layer with other pieces of card stock, because if you use spray’s most of the time you papers will curl. This way, my base will stay nice and flat.

First, I distressed and inked the edges of my layout, and placed some washi tape on two places on my layout.


Then I gave it a light gesso finish

For step three, I glued down some random letters on my layout.

Last step before playing with the sprays ;-)( love that part!) Add another gesso layer.

Then, I took out my beautiful sprays Summer Lovin’Sun, Greased Lightnin’Green & Tilt-a-Wheel Teal and sprayed randomly. Later on, I embossed the letters with Sunset Yellow Orange & Tilt-a-Wheel Teal, and stamped on top of that with a script stamp.

Here is my layout:

Since we have a boy, I wanted to go more masculine because I was using this cute picture of his little hand with my husband’s hand. That’s the reason I left out the pink sprays.

Let’s have a closer look: I just love the effect of the colors blending so perfectly!
