Today I want to share a fun Pretty Little Studio layout with a simple tutorial. For this page I decided to use the Sand Castle collection and to pull out my yellow inks (which is my favorite ink color by far).
This is the layout I created, a page about my youngest on the beach (isn’t it fun that the tag resembles my photo so much?!)
I thought I would show you how I created the background for this page.
1. I started with a white cardstock sheet and a yellow Mister Huey’s color mist (taxi). To create the drips that appear from under my photo you just hold the cardstock upright and the nozzle of your mist as close to your cardstock as possible and then just push down the top of bottle. Repeat this step a few times, about an inch apart:
2. To create the little ink splatters you unscrew the top of the bottle of color mist and use the “straw” end to sweep little droplets on your page:
3. In case you want large ink splatters as well (not visible on my layout) you can use a bottle of distress stain and drop the “sponge” end of the bottle with a bit of force on your page:
I guess a lot of you are already familiar with these techniques, but for those of you who aren’t, I hope you like it and will give it a try sometimes!
Here’re a few close-ups of my layout, I just LOVE the SAND CASTLE collection!
This is it! Would love to learn what you think!
