Simply Colourful Layout with Natalie

Oh My Goodness … It’s JUNE!!!!!  Arrgggg…. and it’s cold here in Adelaide… Winter has just started but the sun is out each day despite the icy cold air …. perfect for scrapping I say!   The LSG team have created another gorgeous color challenge this month and I couldn’t wait to get started on it!

I’m a bit of a sucker for stamps featuring circles (actually I am a bit of a sucker for stamps full stop) and felt it was time to pull some of them out!

I started with Marshmallow cardstock and stamped with Black Archival ink.

Next test out all your colors – I find this super helpful when it comes to creating a page.

I then ‘puddled’ on the color using a round #12 brush – a brush that holds lots of liquid is perfect for this. Once I colored all the circles, I dried it with my heat tool and applied another coat of color to add intensity and depth.

I used Alpine Ice Rose for the background by using a wet brush and pushing the colour around the page.

By dipping the brush in water, it allows me to dilute the colour a little and create a lighter tone of the lovely Rose shade.

Once it was dry, I covered up my circles with some paper towel and added a few splatters of colour to add some more layers and dimension.

Add a little heavy gesso through a stencil to create some more interest in the background.

And you are finished – it’s that easy!
Here are a few detailed shots of the layout.
