I love that this month we are spending the time getting messy. There are so many fun things to play with and get messy on a scrapbook layout. My favorite things!! Gesso, paint, mist, ink, and rub ons all are perfect messy supplies. These products are the best for me to use to really create a page that feels like my page.
For this page about my daughter being 16 (how did that happen???) I started by covering the background with gesso. This is a great way to create a stronger paper base. I then combined gesso and Speckled Egg paint from the paint dauber and brushed it down the page. I used washi tape, some sprinkled ink, rub ons and sequins to finish off the background.
Everything else is a fun embellishment. Plenty of reminders that she is sixteen.
I hope you play with paints and rub ons and really allow yourself to try some messy techniques.
