For my layout this week I had so much fun creating my own background using some of the new Dylusions paints. Loving the new colours in this layout – Campso Teal, Dirty Martini and Tangerine Dream. Using a palette knife, I randomly spread paint all over the page, though aimed to have orange as the focus to match the orange seat in this Summer photo on my son. Mr 2 had just been running happily under the sprinkler in the backyard and sat down to have a little rest! I also added some splatters of paint to add extra texture.
I added embellishments around either side of my photo using the Crate Paper Poolside Collection and a few bits n pieces from my stash. Here’s some close up shots;
Thanks for visiting my page and next up is Lori’s blog for you to ‘hop’ too;
