I will admit it. I am a woman of extremes! I either love it to death, or, well… not.
Ink (spray mist, stains) are not new to scrapbooking. But that doesn’t mean you can’t try new things-even if it is just you it is new to. I still get some pretty strange looks at crops because of what I am doing with ink… and many times they want to play too!
For this layout I had two things in mind: Freestyle the ink and use a lot of the embellishment! I had one of the crazy-fabulous add-ons this month, and by golly, I was gonna USE lots of those embellishments! It is many times the tiniest of embellishments that get lost or not used. Enough of THAT! With the popularity of “confetti” on a layout, the smallest of embellishment can be thrown in the mix for added impact.
As for the ink-the SMALLEST of sticker backs can be used as a mask! (As seen with the butterfly to the left there). It is kinda fun to just go for it regarding the little details in a layout!
I used Mister Huey’s spray mist in white first. It is a very chalky spray ink. And it take some time to dry. I took advantage of that. I then “splattered” (with the end of the mister that is in the bottle) other colors onto the white… it kinda spread out in little fingers in the white! Did I plan this? Heck no! Happy accidents!
I think one of the best things about the date stamp in the add-on (Dear Lizzy) is that it is VERY easy to use just the image without the date. I stamped the banners repeatedly here and there…
And leave it to me-I DID manage to sneak in some jouranling! If I didn’t, the girls I judge each year at the fair (yes, in the scrapbooking catagory) would NEVER let me live it down! Hee!
So make a big statement with ink and LOTS of embellishment. This kit has your covered. You’ll have enough embellishment, and then some!
