Water Color Background

Hi everyone! Happy Monday, I have a layout to share today, which is weird since it's Monday. I feel like I'm finally getting back into my groove of scrapbooking again. So today the layout I'm sharing is using the Finders Keepers collection from Amy Tangerine. 

I love all these wonderful colors in the collection and this floral paper I chose to mat my background on just really made the layout pop. So to start the layout I used the grid paper and started at 12x12. I took Distress Ink in Black Soot and Faded Jeans to do a little water coloring on the background. 

Then cut one inch off two sides of the grid paper and matted it onto the beautiful floral paper. The reason I did the water coloring then matted the paper was to help with the warping of the paper after being wet. The triangles behind the layers were cut out of the Pursuit paper and then slid behind the photo with the stickers and ephemera pieces layered on top. 

Up top I layered a few pieces including one of the gold flair and a cute little enamel heart. Before I laid any pieces down though, I took the rub on sheet and cut up the clusters of diamonds and triangles into threes and placed them randomly.

My favorite part of the layout is the title "Here We Go on an Adventure". I used the Thicker words (which are so cool!) on top of a rub on border and two strips of thin washi tape from the collection. Then placed one of the transparent grey stickers under that came in the Grab Bag. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
