Awesome Day | Niki Rowland
Hey Foxes, Niki here today. For my layout today I'm using the 'Awesome Day' perspextive from the July Fox Box. It's in a turquoise frosted colour and is possibly the most gorgeous colour out of all the Perspextive colours!
For this layout I actually followed a challenge by Lime Citron. Their challenge graphic totally inspired me when I saw it and I was itching to play along so I have incorporated all of the criteria into this layout. There was a sketch, a colour scheme and the layout also had to include a watercolour background with stamping, have an acrylic title and have four black & white photos. I started off by creating the green water colour background. I used five different shades of green Shimmerz paints and applied them using the packaging technique. I then added flicks in the same colours. I added stamping and then drops of black Indian Ink.
Then I stood up to go and collect my children from school, grabbed my cardigan off the back of my chair and accidently swiped it across the layout, smearing the black Indian Ink EVERYWHERE.
So I sulked for about four days and did no scrapbooking whatsoever during this time. Then I finally got over it and re-made the background. I cut up the original one that I ruined and punched hearts out of. I wanted to share that becuase things go wrong for everyone and this proves that I'm definitely not perfect all of the time!
So I then added a photo stack over to the right side, layered up with some ephemera and some twiddles of silver thread. I also added that Awesome Day Perspextive as my title. I added punched hearts after I'd drawn an outline around them with black pen.
I added lots of sequins, some puffy stickers and some black enamel dots.
I absolutely love how this layout turned out, dispite the mishap in the middle. I finished off with journaling and I also added some additional black Indian Ink flicks, which thankfully I didn't smudge this time :)
Thanks so much for joining me today, there is a process video for this layout that you can see below. Happy scrapping
