Hi everyone, I hope you’re enjoying nice spring weather! This morning we actually woke to about an inch of soft fluffy snow, that coated my spring flowers. It’s melting pretty quickly, but I was able to get some pictures of it. Here’s one I just have to share:
So today, I want to share a layout that represents the nice spring weekend we had. I took my kids to an Easter Egg Hunt, and we also went to a store that had face painting and the Easter Bunny there to celebrate their brand new remodel. You can bet, I’ve got a lot of wonderful pictures to scrap from the day! I used Niji Splash Inks to make a colorful statement on this layout, and I’m going to show you how to do it too.
- Niji Splash Inks
- Niji Waterbrush (Flat)
- Heavy weight white scrapbook paper
- Patterned papers, doily, paint brushes, picture, etc.
Step 1: Squeeze desired colors of Splash Ink onto a palette and add water to soften the color.
Step 3: When dry, add some patterned paper to the background. Slightly cover the Splash Ink you already painted on. This is your background.
Step 4: Use Black Splash Ink as an accent color, where you can place the photo and it will “pop.” Place this somewhere on the patterned paper.
Step 5: When dry, build your layout. The doily and photo go directly on the black accent color. Add the paint brushes to the side and draw on some squiggly paint lines from the tips of them if desired. Add a title and journaling if you like, and you’re all done!
