Hey there Gang.
Natalie here on the Lindy’s blog again with a super quick and easy Scrapbook Layout using just two Magical Shakers!
I had these gorgeous stamps that I hadn’t really used yet so figured I’d make them the hero of the page by giving them a splash of Bavarian Blue and Guten Tag Teal!
I stamped them on Marshmallow Mixed Media Cardstock using black archival ink.
Then on my glass mat, I made a little puddle of Guten Tag Teal and Bavarian Blue, this became my paint palette.
Using a round paintbrush and water, I colored each of the stamped images, layering the colors to create a gradient.
For the body of the layout, I cut a piece of cardstock to be 8×11″ and printed some song lyrics from my computer (the song is Be Yourself by Hilltop Hoods– great Australian group).
I taped the left-hand edge to a base page and then taped all the cut out stamped images to the open edge so that they stuck out the side.
A few little splatters were needed to balance out the page so I used a light wash of the two colors and flicked it on with my brush.
I searched through my million packets of alphas for the right black letters for my title but didn’t find any – so the next best thing was to make my own by coloring them with a black paint pen.
I love that just two colors can look so good and compliment the photograph so perfectly!
Don’t overthink it – Just Create!
Thanks for stopping by.
