Dreamy Scrapbook Layout

Hey Crafy Friends Phyllis here to share another Scrapbook Layout using Art Anthology Colorations and Blossom stencil.  These are some of my favorite colors to create with.

I love to create texture using stencils and ink stamping mixed in with all the lumpy and bumpy embellishments!

It’s always fun to use Art Anthology Coloration sprays,  you can use alittle of the spray with different colors or go bold with one color!

You can follow my Snapguide tutorial here:

Scrapbooking layout built with inks

Hello !

Valerie here to show you how to build a stunning background only with inks and papers !

Few stripes of paper and two inks are enough to create dimensions on the background. I used the Colorations sprays in Waimea Bay and Warm with a paint brush and water (see the link to products at the end of this post).

I layered pieces of papers from the same stack and added three die cut sprayed with Waimea Bay to drawn the eye to the picture. Drops of gesso are the final touches to this layout.

You will find the complete tutorial on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and for reading this post. See you in two weeks for another project !
