I recently received in the mail a package that was padded with oversized bubble wrap. I used this bubble wrap to print a bubbly background with watercolor paints. Not only did I reuse this bubble wrap as a scrapbooking tool, but I washed it after I was done painting, so that I can use it again another time.
I also used my watercolors to add freestyle borders and journaling lines to my page. Then I used the string printing technique with acrylic paint to add some brighter orange lines (in the places on the sketch where the zigzag lines are). I also used acrylic paint to define the edges of my photos.
|Journaling: "Mixing just the right combination of bubble solution is lots of fun. It's like chemistry, but safer, since it's just soapy water." :)|
When it came to embellishing the layout, I added playful bits and pieces in a variety of textures: epoxy stickers, a bottle cap, and metal flowers. The flowers are eco-friendly: the orange one was made from recycled metal by a Minnesota artist at Trinket Foundry, and the other flowers are vintage pieces from an etsy seller called Olla Podrida.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today to view my layout. I hope that the cute photos and playful energy in this scrapbook page brought a smile to your face.
ETA: I just realized that I posted about Sketch #13 on the thirteenth day of 2013. Ooh--cosmic! :)
