Scraplift Sunday: Together Quote

Today it's Scraplift Sunday on the Paper Issues blog and we are lifting a layout done by me for Take 5 Tuesday this past week.

I was inspired to use a striped paper as the base to layer and create mixed media effects. Amy Tangerine Hustle & Heart worked perfectly with this design. 

I started with the watercolors and worked on opposite sides of the paper so colors wouldn't blend together while it was wet. A straw from the Paper Issues Swag Bag kit was perfect for blowing the watercolors to create the long splatters.

I started layering ephemera, layered stickers, puffy hearts, mini bows, sticker book stickers, etc... from the Amy Tangerine Hustle and Heart collection.

This was such an easy way to use up some Thicker words from my stash! Most are from Amy Tangerine collections and just two were from Dear Lizzy.  Don't forget to cut things apart to form words you need!  I did this trick for the word "place." The layered globe sticker is absolutely the cutest.

By starting with the Bright Side paper as the base to match watercolors and ephemera, it becomes an easy process to match things up by stripe color. By grouping things tone on tone, it looks less crazy busy, and more layered and colorful. The eye can clearly scan the page and focus back on the small b & w photos. I especially love the clear heart stickers in all the colors found in the sticker book.  You get a whole page of the mini wonky hearts!

Have a wonderful week ahead!  
We hope you are inspired to play along with this week's scraplift or any of the new November challenges.  Please tag us on social media so we can be inspired by your creating and leave you some love!
