Smiles All Around Layout by Neftali Zambrano

Monday, April 5, 2021

  Welcome to this lovely crafty corner of the internet! Neftali Zambrano back with you today and I'm excited to share my first layout using Paige's brand new Wonders collection. I hope you’re ready, this new collection is beautiful and so fun to play with. It even goes well with some bits from Paige’s older collections. Today I am sharing how I created a blue monochromatic layout using a mix of the Wonders collection and a beautiful tiled Paper 21 from the Horizon collection.

I started off by working up my base. I used a blue mist spray to do a bit of mixed media on my background. I used the smoosh technique using a plastic wrapper and my mist. I love this technique for creating a lovely haphazard wash of color. I also used the new Acrylic Stamps to add some extra depth using the mandala stamp. I then brought out the beautiful tiled Paper 21 from the Horizon collection. I cut a few strips of the tiles to create a full border around the edge of my page.

Then I found Paige's Doily cut file. I got creative with it: first by using watercolors to give it a wash of blue and then I cut it into four pieces. I added each peace to the corner of my “frame”.  Since I was working with blue, I decided to use two photos of my silly boy and myself. These were backed using Paper 15 from the Go the Scenic Route collection.

Once I had adhered these photos in the center of my page, I began adding embellishments from the Wonders collections. I used the Floral Die CutsPaper FlowersEphemera Die Cuts, and a few of the Puffy Stickers. I also added a few Nuvo drops in a lovely blue color to finish off my page. Lots of fun layers, and I was done!

And that, crafty friends, is how I created this awesome blue monochromatic layout! I love the tiled patterned paper, the blue watercolored doily, and the stunning new Wonders embellishments! I hope you guys are feeling inspired to create something like this layout using the brand new Wonders collection. Thanks for stopping by today!
