Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a layout I created for Easter (which is right around the corner!). I wanted to document this cute photo of my niece and nephew with their eggs from last year and thought using some Clear Scraps goodies would be perfect! And I'm going to show you the techniques I used so you can recreate if you would like!
To prepare my background, I used the 5x9 Plaids Mixer Stencil and Crackle Paint across the areas where I wanted to place my photo. I did not worry about perfect placement or filling in every space. After I was finished, I set my page aside to dry.
Next, I got out my Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes to color my pieces. For my basket, I used a nice blue Salvaged Patina (leaving the handle untouched).
For the Easter Chipboard Script Word Title, I used a nice soft pink color (Saltwater Taffy) for the chipboard.
I adhered both pieces using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive; here I placed my title next to a journaling spot where I stamped the date as well as added some small embellishments.
I added some coordinating stickers to my basket as well as a cute ribbon for accent.
Here is an up close shot of the dried Crackle Paste with the Plaids Mixer Stencil.
Thanks for stopping by the blog! You can find all of the Chipboard Embellishment Shapes by clicking HERE! Have a wonderful day!
