Cute - Bella Blvd

Christin Gronnslett May 2015 Cute 01
This layout was on the Bella Blvd blog. 
I am no typical scrapper that documents the daily events, I am more a collector of faces and expressions as my kids grow older as with this layout. The kids might prefer it if I did Project Life (as the ask me to photograph small things all the time - like things they build from Legos, etc), but for me as a scrapper I scrap for me and I get inspired by mixing color products with papers. To create this page I first used a spatula to spread clear gesso on white cardstock. (Note, clear gesso is clear and will not give your cardstock a yellow tint like the white gesso does, and mixes with the mist better). I usually work with multiple backgrounds at the same time so I let the gesso air dry. Then I start dropping mist on the page. Some drops I use a waterbrush on, the rest I just drop. For multiple layers of drops I let the drops dry before adding more layers. For the drops I mostly use shades or similar colors to the papers I intend to use, like you see here. I make these backgrounds to ease the contrast between the bold colors and the white cardstock and the fact that I can’t handle straight lines very well. I hope I have inspired you to mix some colors with the papers.

Pinkfresh Studio Walter & Winnie NSD 2015 sketch challenge

Welcome to the nINSD 2015 Challenge Collaboration between Pinkfresh studio and Winnie & Walter.

Here I present the last challenge challenge. A sketch challenge. Go to the either the Pinkfresh studio or the Winnie & Walter blog for the whole list.

When I interpret a sketch I am never able to do the sketch literally, I always change a few things. Here I used chevron instead of circles and I mirrored the sketch.  You can feel free to interpret the sketch another way.

My layout. I have used chevron cut files and chevron stamps together with mostly the Pinkfresh studio collection Up in the clouds.

And here is the prize. Remember to link up on the Pinkfresh studio page
