Just For Kicks Layout

Hello and happy weekend!!
Samantha here with you today, and I'm sharing a fun little mixed media layout with you!

I started by adding some gesso to my white cardstock. Once that was dry, I used some embossing paste with a triangle stencil to create more texture.
Then, once that was dry (lots of drying time! Ha!), I added some watercolor on top of the mixed media-y area! I combined the Distress Ink colors Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio and made a nice old mess! lol!

I added layers to my photo by using scraps of various 6x6 paper pads that I had! Am I the only one who keeps all their scraps? Ha! Tell me it isn't so!

I did some light embellishing, too! I used the chipboard stars from the Shimelle Starshine collection, the puffy cloud outline from AWESOME Fancy Free puffy stickers, and some word phrases from Cosmo Cricket!

I even added a hidden photo on a tag behind the photo! That was fun!! I knew I wanted to keep that photo forever, but it was taken with my phone, and super blurry, so it was terrible quality. A little hiding was the perfect answer!

So that's my layout!
My littlest Mann was 3 years old there,and just LOVED long as his older brother could run on the field and hold his hand the whole time! Ha! Instant heart melting! :)

Be sure to stock up on everything you need, there's TONS of new things being added to the shop!
Thanks again!
