Playing with Printshop!

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Happy Wednesday everyone! Barb here to share a few layouts I made with you! When I saw the Studio Calico Printshop Line, I knew we needed to sell it in the store! This line is awesome! The papers are so versatile that you can use them for almost any occasion! And with the mix of patterns, you can change up the styles between layouts. I completed two layouts with the same paper pad but you would never know it!


I love the fun, playful tone of this Silly x3 layout! I cut several of the patterned papers and then outlined them with a black pen. I also added some playful doodles! 

 How cute is that little camera? That came from the coordinating vellum die-cuts! So did the arrows ! I love them!! The striped Silly title at the bottom is from the Scripty Words Pack. I used Dylusions spray ink in Calypso Teal to add color to it!

Before I adhered the Silly title to the bottom of the page, I traced it two times with a black pen. I then used Gelatos to color the words in giving it an ombre look down the side of the layout!

 Here is the second layout I made! All of my kids know that their Grandpa is the man so sit by at night when watching TV! His favorite snack is Popcorn and Apples and there have been a lot of great memories made by sharing snacks with Grandpa! These papers are from the same Printshop Paper Pad!

 The Chipboard Letters came from the Frosted Designs Sea Breeze Scrapbooking Kit. The & sign is from the coordinating Printshop vellum Die-Cuts. Do you see the brown stripe on the paper above the banner?! I painted that on using our brand new Lindy's Stamp Gang Inks!

This was my first time working with Lindy's Products and I have to say….. I LOVE THEM!!! The colors are so amazing and I like that I can control the size of the "drips" by the way I spray! I also used the Magical Powder with a stencil to create the blue circles. (you can kind of see one peeking out from under the banner.) I will certainly be adding a few more colors to my collection very soon!! :)

I hope you have some creative time for yourself today!

Barb :)

I outline and doodle on my layouts all the time but I never thought to trace a word on to my layout! Definitely going to try that on a future layout! Thanks for the idea!
