Hi Beautiful Gang!!!! Mel here today to share with you a quick step-by-step tutorial using Lindy’s sprays to create a stunning background for my layout.
Let’s start with the background!
On white cardstock, I apply some modeling paste with a palette knife using a stencil from Aladine.
Let the paste completely dry.
Now it’s my favourite moment! Play with the wonderful Lindy’s Colors, I started with Salt Water Taffy (which is my lightest color) and makes a really pretty base layer of color.
After that I added Raspberry Lemonade and Ramblin’ Rose Pink at the same time, letting the colors mix together and make a wonderful and varied Pink.
Then I add Marigold Yellow Orange and the background really begins to POP!
And Finally a little bit of Poinciana Red Flame just to give the colors some depth and extra oomph.
After drying the background, I added some random stamping using different colors of ink.
Now it’s time to choose some stickers and embellishments : flairs, die cuts, papers, title etc…
When I’m satisfied with my layout, I can glue everything down onto the background.
To finish, add some splashes of Lindy’s color with a brush, and IT’S DONE!!!!!
- Sprays: Salt Water Taffy, Raspberry Lemonade, Ramblin’ Rose Pink, Marigold Yellow Orange, Poinciana Red Flame
- Die cuts, wood stars, Flair buttons and title
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
I hope I inspired you!
