Scrapbook Layout created for Clique Kits  - ENJOY! -

hello there!

It has been a busy week here in my blog!,  but all good, thanks to GOD!

Today, I am up on the Clique Kits blog with this new layout that uses the beautiful Swan Lake kit.  I love that even though the name sounds girly, the kit is so versatile, it can be used in boy layouts.   This time, I used the papers and ephemera to create a layout about my small nephew.  Here is small video on how the layout came together - i hadn't realized the camera had stopped taping while i was creating the background on the page ... My deepest apologies! -:

I hope you enjoyed the sped up version on how the layout came together.  
Here is a small recap on how the page came together:

I used a wet brush to drop water on the area i was to add paint, following splatters of watercolor were dropped on the wet area.  A wet brush helped guide the paint along the area.  To end, a few drops of metallic watercolor were also added.

The layers in clusters around the picture were created using the papers included in the Swan Lake kit.   Last month's kit -Sapphire- contained these skeleton leaves that serve as the background for the page.  In addition, a few extra chipboard leaves were added from this month's Swan Lake add-ons.   The title of the page comes from one of the foiled Kraft tags included in this month's kit.  

Finally, I added a few extra details by stamping the sentiment, " enjoy Today" along the area of the page,  adding some of the exclusive printables  around the picture clusters, and a bit of journaling at the bottom of the page.  Here is the final layout:

Doesn't this page say fall and happiness!  I am so loving how Clique Kits' Swan Lake  was perfect to create this layout about our little Mattia.  Don't forget to stop by the Clique Store to check this and many of the new products in the store.

Thanks for visiting today!
