Hi GoGo friends, it’s Vicki today with my February post. This month, my technique is scrapping with Alchemy Sparks paints. Have you seen them? They are GORGEOUS! Lorraine taught a class at the October 2018 Getaway that used the paints in three colours (gold, black and rose gold). I chose to use just one colour as I had some Pinkfresh embellishments that had rose gold in them and the paint called Butterfly Spells was a rose gold colour.
I started by using some of the paint to stamp onto my background. This worked really well, but make sure you clean your stamp after use because I could imagine it would not be in good condition later if you didn’t! You can see it in the image below, but I forgot to take a photo before embellishing.
The rest of the layout is pretty simple. I used some papers and cardstock in coordinating colours to the Pinkfresh embellishments I had in my stash. I tore them to add a strip down the left and placed the photo overlapping the papers and the stamping.
Finally, I painted some chipboard stars, hearts and butterflies that had been in my stash forever with the paint and stuck those on too – they are so sparkly as you can see in the images. I was really happy with how great the paint looked on the embellishments and can definitely see myself using it again. I finished with a Bramble Fox perspextive for my title along with a clear word sticker.
Bye for now – see you next month!
