Hi Everyone! Piradee here to share a layout that I’ve created using the fun Phantom and Mistable collections for today’s “Member Mania Scraplift” installment. Not only was I inspired by Leeann Pearce layout that she had shared with us on the Live Pink gallery, but I also wanted to add a little twist of my own – challenging myself to create a non-Halloween layout using the new Phantom collection. Now, who said that you have to use a Halloween collection for a Halloween layout… right?
And sharing the gorgeous layout created by Leeann Pearce …. don’t you love all the fun elements that she included and especially the use of paint to create her background!
There were so many elements from Leeann’s layout that I was inspired with and I couldn’t resist including them onto my little layout – from the base layout design of multiple blocks, to the mix media background, the inclusion of flags (or banners in my case), the use of transparency to including some of the products that she had use (such as the soiree wood shapes and flag poles). Also the title of my layout was inspired by one of the Phantom Clear Stamp – Caution – as honestly, that day at the amusement park was truely a “boys” day out…lol!
Also sharing some more details of the layout, where I used various distress ink and then water on the mistable pattern paper to create my droplet effect. This is definitely one of my favorite technique as the effect looks as thou I also add a bit off misting.
And sharing some behind the scene steps in creating that effect… I first started by covering the mistable pattern paper with the various distress ink colors…
Then using my mini mister, I misted the water first in my hand and then sprinkled it onto the pattern paper (found that by doing this I would get bigger droplet size, in comparison to spraying the water directly onto the pattern paper….
And as the water dries up, you would start to see the difference in color shade (please note that I have only tried this with water based dye inks and not sure if this would work with other types / brand of inks).
