Hello! It’s Valerie, and I have a layout to share with you today. I love the black and white patterned papers and accents from the Jubilee line. You can’t go wrong with black and white, right? So I thought these black and white accents from all the Jubilee Mixed Bags might be great on a layout by themselves.
Supplies:My Mind’s Eye Jubilee Mint Julep “Beautiful” Mixed Bag and Jubilee Tangerine “Awesome” Mixed Bag. My Mind’s Eye Jubilee Wild Berry “Life” Mixed Bag, Wild Berry “Hey You” Rub-Ons, Wild Berry “Life” Enamel Dots. Wild Berry “Today” Enamel Shapes. My Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ Alpha & Word Stickers. Other: American Crafts white cardstock, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, & Studio Calico Mister Huey.
For the background I wanted to mimic the runny paint on the glass at the museum. I sprayed the top half of the white cardstock with water. Then I sprayed two different colors onto the top half of the cardstock. Next I sprayed more water and then tipped the page to let it run and drip down. I sped up the drying time with a heat tool and then laid the sheet under some heavy books overnight to flatten it out.
I store all the Jubilee Mixed Bag pieces together in the same small basket, so I simply went through and pulled out all the black and white pieces. I played around with the arrangement on the layout and then adhered them to the page. I added a rub-on and some enamel dots too. I love the contrast between the yellow, orange, black, and white!
I feel like I’ve been in a little rut lately and I am happy this layout feels totally me! I’m ready to go spend some more time in my craft room today. Thanks for stopping by!
