Scrapbook Layout created for Citrus Twist Kits  - CREATE -

 Hi there!

It is time to start celebrating (inter)National Scrapbook  Day!  This is the equivalent to the NBA playoffs my son so much enjoys, but better!  The first project of the day goes to Citrus Twist Kits.

I was so drawn to the colors and designs of this inspiration board,  that i knew i could easily translate them into some mixed media for a background of a scrapbook page.

I chose to replicate the black patternn of the board using some acrylic paint that had been thinned out with water.  Then used a few Distress Oides, and an Echo Park stencil to create the colorful flower patten on top of the black stripes ( this resembles the colors and watercolor floweres that are in the board).  Then a bit of gold texture paste was added -through a stencil- to some parts of the background.

While all the mixed media dried and setlted, I worked on adding layers to a picture of myself playing wiht paper.  For this I used this month's PARADISE Add on kit, as well as this month's Patterned Paper play and  some of the free digitals available at the shop for NSD.

A third cluster was also added as to comtinue the line of the clusters on the picture.  I took advantage of the cut apart sheets to create a fun grouping that tells the story of the page.

Then used the foam thickers from rhe Paradise Add, as well as the Add-on stamp ro create the title of this page. Just look at the final layout:

Just loved how this turned out!  The colors and texture oif the page are just like the ones in the inspiration board.  Remember to check Citrus Twist Kits for all the beautiful projects and challenges.

Now, it is time to continue creating.  HAVE AN AWESOME NSD!!
