Lindys Step by Step Scrapbook Page

Hey there guys!
Natalie here sharing another bight and happy Scrapbook Page using Lindys Sprays.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I was inspired by a birthday card I saw somewhere on Pinterest ages ago and thought this style of page would be the perfect way to showcase this great photo of my Crafty Besties and I.
Here are a few simple steps to create this projects.
I started by pulling out 14 colors that represented the color wheel … I have listed the full color range at the end of this post.

I cut some plain cardstock to be about 6×3 inches and individually sprayed each one, making sure that I got a good coat of color. Just a tip before you start spraying – use some paper towel to catch any excess and protect your workspace and lightly spray the back of your paper with water first to stop it curling.

Once dry, I started laying all the pieces out on a separate piece of paper in the order that I wanted them.

I trimmed them all down a bit into a triangle to help with the overlapping, then used a few removable dots to keep them in place.  I trimmed the whole sheet back to neaten the edges before using a sewing machine to  secure to the white cardstock background.

Once it was on the page, I went around and lifted the edges of each segment and removed the paper and removable dots from underneath so that you couldn’t see it.

I used vellum to mat my photo before foam taping it to the page to hide the messy area in the middle before finishing with the title.

I love this page and it now hangs proud on the wall in my studio – that color just brings a smile to my face and the memory behind the photo makes me laugh out loud!

Drop Dead Bright for Lindys Gang

Hey there Gang!
Natalie here sharing a quick Scrapbook Layout to brighten your day with a stunning rainbow layout using the Drop Dead Diva Spray Set!
2feb
I love using Cameo Cut Files with my creating as it’s quick and easy and a really effective embellishment on a page that you can alter to suit your project. I purchased this one from an Etsy Shop – WildPilotLLC and cut it out on flat white cardstock.
1feb
I wanted something bright and punchy to make my photo ‘POP’ so the Drop Dead Diva Spray Set was a perfect choice.
As usual, before I started, I always check my colors to make sure that they are going to work well together and making a swatch is the easiest way to do this!a
Rather than spraying them directly to the page, I wanted a more defined look so I took off the lids and used them with a paintbrush.
k
t
I used a wide brush and painted nice big fat swatches across my cardstock and then once dry, added a few splatters… Simplicity at its Best!
Here’s a quick walkthrough of how it came together.
Once I adhered the Cameo Cut, I added a few highlights with the sewing machine – not my forte – and mounted my photo for a little dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by – and I’ll leave you with a super cute photo of my Studio Helper – Mr Ollie… always there for me when taking photos!
