First Haircut Mixed Media Scrapbook Page by Amy Prior

Hi there Scrapping Clearly fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing a quick tutorial on how I created the background for this fun page...


Step 1: Trim your photos to size and mark off a piece of American Crafts 12x12 Double Thick White Cardstock where you would like them to be positioned using a lead pencil.


Step 2: Doodle some random circles with little stitched patterns around the page using a permanent archival quality black pen. Make sure you place these circles where they will be visible once you have adhered your photograph with any layers added around. 


Step 3: Use a paint brush to add some Colour Blast - Shimmer Spray- Sunshine by roughly colouring in the circles. I do messy circles so I did not want to colour within the lines either! Add some splatters around the page as you go. Dry with a heat tool.


Step 4: After the yellow is dry, repeat Step 3 using Colour Blast - Shimmer Spray - Fire Engine and dry with a heat tool.


Step 5: After the red is dry, repeat Step 3 using Colour Blast - Shimmer Spray - Deep Water and dry with a heat tool.


 Step 6: When all of the Shimmer spray is completely dry, layer some Simple Stories - Life in Color Collection - Assorted 12x12 patterned papers around the photograph and adhere onto the page. I have also added a couple of different sized doilies from my stash underneath these layers.


Step 7: Add a title to your page using stickers from the Simple Stories - Life in Color Collection - Expressions Cardstock Stickers Sheet. I have added some white doodling around the edge of some letters to help them stand out on top of a darker background.
