Tammy's first PaperArtsy Share

Hi everyone

Tammy here today. I've popped in to share my first layout I created for the PaperArtsy Challenge.

So here's a reminder of my creation:

Yep my usual bright style again.
A happy, bright creation about the silliness and fun the kids and I have together.  We do try sometimes to be serious, but it never lasts long.  
Love them to bits.
This is the stamp set I used:

Love it sooooo much!!

Anyway, enough drooling, lets get on with how I created this layout.

I started with some 7Dots Paper.

I stamped lots of background stamps using some 7Dots Stamps.

I then gathered my favourite colours in Dylusions Ink Sprays.

I randomly splodged them onto some white cardstock using my favourite technique that I like to call the 'packaging' technique.

I grab some plastic from the packaging.....the part you usually throw away.  I add a few squirts of Dylusions Ink Spray (one colour at a time only).  I then add a spritz or two of water and then simply place it onto my cardstock in a random splodgy way....yep I'm throwing in all the technical terms today!

Vicki has a cardstock called 'Marshmallow' which copes really well with mixed media.  I didn't even apply clear gesso this time!

I continue with various colours until I'm happy with the result, making sure each colour dries inbetween.
I used the following Dylusions colours - Polished Jade, London Blue, Lemon Zest, Fresh Lime and Bubblegum Pink.
I adore Dylusions Ink Sprays - the colours are just so bright! I love that they dry bright too, so many spritzes lose their colour vibrancy once dry.
I then stamped some of the gorgeous funky flowers.

I then cut these out.

What a gorgeous little pile of happiness!!

I began to add a few tags and layers behind my photo.

I added black gesso to some metal flowers

I then added the stamped and metal flowers to my layout.  I wanted them to look like they were trailing down the layout.

I added some German Scrap to the top and bottom of my layout.

I added some Word stickers from 7Dots and 13Arts.

For my title, I added some Heidi Swapp word Stickers - they work perfectly for this layout as they go with the 'fun theme'.

I adhered some of the flowers with foam tape to give them dimension and I tucked some underneath the photos.  I also made sure some of them were trailing off the page.

I love all the different colours on the flowers, and teamed with black and white they just POP right off the page!

Such a simple and fun technique.  I hope you give it a go.

I hope this has inspired you to get creating.
