Galaxy Background Layout 2 with Valerie O.

Hi everyone!

Valerie here today to share a new step by step tutorial of a dark galaxy background that will really make your layouts POP. I used 5 differents Lindy’s color ink sprays to create my background. It’s very important to use watercolor paper to get the best result.


Basic Process

  1. Use a watercolor paper
  2. Create background beginning with the palest colors in the middle of the page and work out toward the darkest colors on the page edges
  3. Dry completely and add a touch of gold
  4. To complete the effect, add some drops created with Magical Shaker Frozen Jack Frost
  5. Put embellishments here and there to finish your layout.

I’ve created a step-by-step video if you want to watch the entire process.

The colors and the technique make for the most beautiful effects!


For my chipboard title I used King Midas Gold on the plain chipboard. I used the Caroline’s technique from yesterday.

Let me show you some close ups!
