Layout | Baby, it's cold outside | Video

Hi, everyone,
We've got a scrapbook layout we want to share with you today. It's our first ever layout so we hope you like it!
 For our background, we started out by painting our vintage, brown scrapbook paper with white and blue acrylic paint by Pentart. As you can see, we didn't paint right to the edge, we liked the contrast of the brown paper against the light blue paint. Next, to give our background some depth, we splattered some of our white paint and some watered down Distress Ink in Broken China on it and stamped snowflakes from Stamperia onto the background.

Then we gathered the supplies we wanted to use, our picture which set the tone for our layout, papers for our layout which we had watercolored with Broken China Distress Ink on watercolor paper and then we stamped them, we used stamps we had from our stash which had a bit of writing. For the brown strips of paper, we used our vintage paper which we cut up, then using a paintbrush and painting back and forth across the strips with black, brown and white acrylic paint we made them
look like distressed wood.

For the sentiment, we traced around a stencil with the word Baby and handcut it. Then, covered it with Stamperia Black Ink and while it was still wet, we covered our sentiment with Glacier white embossing powder and heat embossed it to give it that glossy look. Then we foam mounted it onto the background.

Some flowers, die cut leaves, small felt pom pom balls and a chipboard wreath

We added paper bird houses, a wood star embellishment, a little tag and paper heart which was colored using yellow acrylic paint

We created a clay heart and birds out of soft, pliable air dry clay

Stamped the sentiment on the air dry clay heart using individual alphabet stamps! The acrylic block is from wycinanka.

This layout was a lot of fun to make!
