Dream Play Create Layout

Thursday, December 20, 2018

My newest collection with Pink Paislee, Whimsical, is not a holiday-themed line, but by picking out bits and pieces and pairing them with snowflakes, glitter, and sequins, I was able to create a wintery page for the 12 Days of Giveaways happening over at Scrapbook & Cards Today!
I started with a light green ombre patterned paper background (the B-side of Paper 12) and then die cut my Snowflake Border cut file from smooth white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I applied iridescent liquid glitter glue to the snowflake border and set it aside to dry.
On the left and top edges where the snowflake border was going, I added a layer of white gesso and let it dry then splashed white acrylic paint on top and let it dry. I splashed lots of watercolors in colors to match Whimsical on top, letting it dry between each layer. Tip: I used a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
Once the background was completely dry, I added the snowflake border using dimensional adhesive. I tucked a photo of Fox into the left side and placed a round mint sticker from the Stickers torn in half under the top and bottom edges. Then I scattered colorful StickersEnamel ShapesEphemera Die Cuts, and Chipboard Stickers on and around the snowflake border. The title was made with gold word Chipboard Stickers on the top left corner.
Next I added clear sequins over the snowflake border as well as the empty space of the layout for texture and shine. On the bottom right corner, I trimmed a gold scalloped border Sticker in half, used the pieces to edge the corner, then machine stitched over it. To finish I wrote journaling with a black pen in the same corner. I hope you're inspired to use Whimsical for your winter-themed pages!
