I have so many photos that I want to scrapbook using the new C’est La Vie collection! But the photo that I chose to scrapbook first was a casual, fun photo of me and a few of my closest girly friends! I wanted to keep the layout light, fresh and fun so I grabbed a few supplies and got to creating!
I kept the photo the focus of the layout, front and center!
I started with a white cardstock background but wanted to add some subtle interest behind my photo and embellishment cluster. One of my favorite things to do lately is to add a simple and light watercolor wash behind it. I use a wide paintbrush and a very watered down medium and paint strokes from side to side.
For this layout I used a very pale color as I wanted it to be very subtle. After the watercolor paint dried, I added a few flicks of gold Color Shine mist or extra interest!
Here is a closer look at the main cluster in the centre of the layout. I added a few layers of patterned paper behind my photo and had so much fun arranging embellishments from the ephemera pack and puffy stickers!
Now to start on the next layout!
