Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Yes This Crazy Child Is Ours

Hey everyone! I’m excited to be back again sharing my Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Yes This Crazy Child Is Ours. This is my third scrapbook page! I’m, again, using the new Color Fresh collection by Heidi Swapp.

I really wanted to bust out some mixed media for this one so started with some white card stock. Not being 100% sure what I was going to add I added a coat of clear gesso to the page. Once that was completely dried I used a stencil and some texture paste to add some texture.

That was left for a couple of hours to dry thoroughly. I wanted to use some Lindy’s shakers so pulled out 3 colours. They are Guten Tag Teal, Time Travel Turquoise and Bavarian Blue. Prior to adding any colour I spritzed the paper with water and then started splattering the mixed up magicals onto my paper.

I love the way the colours move and blend. And sparkle! Adding splatters and water as necessary, I added all the colour I wanted and then walked away to let it air dry. Before I left it to dry I soaked up some of the excess water with some paper towel. Because I had added the gesso I was able to wipe off the excess splatters at the top of the page.

As you can see I have 5 photos and chose to mat all of them. I have used a green sticker from the 6×12 cardstock stickers on 2 corners of the biggest photo. Next I layered some rainbow strips to both the top and bottom of the largest photo with one of the pieces from the Note It paper. I have then used the Paint The Town paper to back all of the photos.

To make sure I got the placement correct I have tacked down all of the photos and then stuck my title. I have used a combination of the Puffy Stickers and the Color Fresh thickers and used a wet glue. Also desperate to use the “He got that from his FatherAnnabelle acrylic shape I made sure to get that on the page too!

Now I could adhere all of the photos. And finish off the page!

I added a little strip of the rainbow paper to the top left. And then a just have fun gold foiled die cut from the ephemera pack. And then one other sticker from the 6×12 cardstock stickers to the biggest photo.

I added my journalling right along the bottom in black. And then felt I needed to add more black lol I pulled out the Words & Icons stamp set again and added in a few sprinkley stamp clusters. Which I almost immediately thought “oh no, what have you done?!” about so I added some more stamping! And then some black splatters. Then I was happy with it!

With that white acrylic down the bottom I decided to also add in some Annabelle white stars around the page. And finally 2 of the pink photo corners from the ephemera pack. I’m calling this page done! You can see my process in the video below!

I hope you have been enjoying my shares so far with the Color Fresh collection, make sure you head back tomorrow for my next one!
