The Color in my Life Layout with Natalie May

Hey there guys!

Natalie here sharing another bight and happy Scrapbook Page using Lindys Sprays.

I was inspired by a birthday card I saw somewhere on Pinterest ages ago and thought this style of page would be the perfect way to showcase this great photo of my Crafty Besties and I.

Here are a few simple steps to create this projects.

I started by pulling out 14 colors that represented the color wheel … I have listed the full color range at the end of this post.

I cut some plain cardstock to be about 6×3 inches and individually sprayed each one, making sure that I got a good coat of color. Just a tip before you start spraying – use some paper towel to catch any excess and protect your workspace and lightly spray the back of your paper with water first to stop it curling.

Once dry, I started laying all the pieces out on a separate piece of paper in the order that I wanted them.

I trimmed them all down a bit into a triangle to help with the overlapping, then used a few removable dots to keep them in place.  I trimmed the whole sheet back to neaten the edges before using a sewing machine to  secure to the white cardstock background.

Once it was on the page, I went around and lifted the edges of each segment and removed the paper and removable dots from underneath so that you couldn’t see it.

I used vellum to mat my photo before foam taping it to the page to hide the messy area in the middle before finishing with the title.

I love this page and it now hangs proud on the wall in my studio – that color just brings a smile to my face and the memory behind the photo makes me laugh out loud!
