Good morning how are you? Rikki here today with a very, bright and fun layout that hopefully will inspire you. I have been going through my photos only to discover so older ones that where hidden in the stash….. ones that I have been waiting for the perfect papers and accessories.
Have you got photos like that? Have you found the perfect ”things” to complete the layout or are you still waiting? Please say that I am not the only one?
The approach to this layout was to have fun with lots of different, bright papers a simple trick when doing these types of layouts is keep the papers in blocks so you can stack them and if you mat them in a black card stock it will tie all the layers together and sort of ”calm down ” all the patterns.
The Blueprint Rocket is one of my favourite things, because its so fine I decided to spray paint it with Dulux Chalk – Charcoal that way I wasn’t rubbing the ink on the finer details.
I sprayed the Adventure Bound with the same Dulux spray paint and to add a metallic element I used a wax with my finger over the title.
The KAPOW – Layered Cluster I used the Tim Holtz Oxide Ink Pads, I love how they soften in colour to give you a great chalk effect, I find that they still remain bright but they don’t seem to compete with the papers.
To finish off the layout I added some clusters of Layered Bolts scattered around in clusters throughout the layout.
To add to the comic feel of the layout I used a background stamp that are dots and just randomly stamped away.
*** Tip: The paper is a gloss, so when splattering ink it will eventually absorb, just pop it in the sun to help that process along. Also use a Staz on ink or a archival for the stamping.
Till next time have a creative day.
