Kickin Back With Katie

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Hi everyone! It's Katie here today I am happy to be on the blog sharing a fun layout I did using some of the awesome products from the Frosted Designs store. I don't know about you, but it has been a super hectic month for me and I was so, so happy to be able to finally get some scrappy time in my new bigger studio space! The best part is I finally got everything put away and organized how I want.. now all I have to do is create!

So on with the photos of my layout. I used a darker background paper to really make my bright, sunny yellow elements pop off my page. This paper is from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut line, as well as a few pieces of the PB&J line from BG. I also had fun spritzing and misting my background to add to the depth using the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst mist in TiffanyLou blue, the Dylusions spray in White Linen, and another mist in yellow. I carefully dried each layer before adding more so you could see each color, then laid down my papers.

After I had the main components down, I added my title and embellishments. I then went back to doodle a bit starting with the 'tail' of my balloon which is a brad, as well as some swirlys and dots using the Signo Gelly Roll pen in white. I also used some Prima Vintage Sugar Dots, and an Um Wow Flair button.

For some fun around the corners of my photo mats, I used some Faber Castel Gelatos in yellow and grey, then smudged a bit with my finger. I haven't used them this way before, but I really like how saturated the color is and I am happy how it came out. I didn't use water or anything at all on the edges but it took alot of the color after I distressed the paper's edges.

This layout really came together pretty quickly, and now that I'm settled in my new place I can't wait to keep creating! You can find most of the items I used in the Frosted Designs store, happy creating!!!
