Loads of Color with Patter Cross

Happy Wednesday! It's Patter Cross here, and today I am sharing two layouts with you. The fun part is that they are 8 1/2 x 11, and I have not scrapped that size in probably 10 years or more! Let's look at them in detail.

"You Today"
This precious little one zones out when she is ready for a nap. So, here you see that adorable expression on her face as she waits for her bottle. I chose to use the Blue Fern Studios Brigitte Butterfly Set. I put down a light layer of gesso on the chipboard then painted it with Adirondack pool paint dabber. While the paint was still wet, I spritzed it with Heidi Swapp mint green color shine. In person it has a bit of a marbled look but I wasn't able to capture it on camera.

"Cute Stuff"
My next layout is done in the colors of the baby's room. I love the bright colors so I went bright with this layout. It was a bit hard to photograph because of the white background. The close-up photos show the colors best.

The Blue Fern Studios chipboard I used was the Good Vibes set for the title "Cute Stuff," and the Organic Vine Corner which I cut in half to use on both sides of the picture.
Pin It
For the Organic Vine Corner, I painted it with gesso and then spritzed with SEI Tumble Dye desert purple mist. I was able to get it darker in some areas so it gave it a very fun look.

The title I painted with gesso and Adirondack raspberry paint dabber. I needed it to be bright.
