Don't Blink!!

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a FUN layout about our super BRIEF encounter with 'snow' here in South Carolina, last winter! It was SOOOO quick, it melted before touching the ground, and if you blinked, you would miss it! Ha! But it still counts, right?!


I started by using gesso on my background, and then went crazy with the watercolor and paints in peaches, pinks, purples and black! SO FUN! Super loving that color combination! :) The gesso protects the white cardstock from deteriorating from all of the water and paints! 

Once it was all dry, I used some white embossing paste and this AMAZING Knight Sky Stencil by Echo Park to add some stars and texture! After attaching those fabbie wood veneer chevrons, I covered them in clear glitter Stickles!! LOOOOOOVE that look! 

And even though this is a winter layout, I used LOTS of ephemera from the Pink Paislee Summer Lights collection!! The pinks and purples were perfect matches! I also added some puffy stickers from various collections like Snow and Cocoa and Cute Girl

Lastly, I paired some of the White Woodgrain Puffy Alphas from Evalicious with some super old Thickers in my stash for the title!
And of course, I used my sewing machine to stitch things onto the layout! 

I hope this layout inspired you to maybe get messy and painty!
