Layout 25: Play


Today's layout was a bit of a struggle for me.  The photo of Hudson in the ball pit he got for Christmas is chock a block full of bright colours.  At first I decided to go with bright colours on the layout, but no matter what I tried nothing worked.  Frustrated, I put the photo aside for a while.

When I came back to the photo I had one of those 'der' moments.  The bright colours I was trying to use were competing with the photo instead of highlighting it.  I went straight for the neutrals and the Travel Journal DSP.  Perfect!

I used Crumb Cake cardstock as the base.  I sprayed it a couple of times with my Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.  I then had a bit of a disaster that ended up working out nicely.  I shook my Smooch Spritz as there was still a bit of silver on the bottom.  It splattered everywhere, including on my favourite white tshirt.  While I wasn't happy about the tshirt, the splatters on my cardstock were fantastic!  The layout turned out quite grungy, which is very different to my usual style.

Ink: Basic Black Marker
DSP/Cardstock: Travel Journal DSP, Crumb Cake
Other: Silver Foil Smooch Spritz, Jumbo Eyelets, Hemp Twine, Dimensionals, Non SU Rubons.

Catch you later,



  1. Great layout Tina, love the splatters, and the play corner border, very nice!

  2. Love the neutral colours with that gorgeous bright photo - just pops off the page. Glad the 'oops' moment turned out well. (For the page if not for the tshirt!)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.
