SGC Anything Goes – Painting Layout

This month at Southern Girls Challenge we have an ‘Anything Goes’ theme, so I continued with my scrapbooking of childhood photos with a couple of pictures of me painting with a friend when I was 9 months (I’ve been doing this whole art and craft thing for a while!).

I started out by dripping Distress Spray Stain from the top of a white piece of card, adding water to get the drips. I stuck to primary colours as I felt this was appropriate for two small children and the yellow went well with the yellow aprons.

In order to keep the same colours, I used my Distress Stains to colour some white card yellow for the photo mats and the title.

I finished this off with stitching in the red and blue to tidy the edges and make it all stand out.

I love the texture that stitching on my layouts gives, and I feel it reflects me somewhat too! A couple of tips if you want to try this:

  1. Pierce the holes first so you know you have an even stitch, use a template if you want.
  2. Make sure whatever you are stitching around is stuck down firmly at the edges, otherwise the stitching and handling will cause them to lift and you won’t get a neat row.

Thank you for checking out my layout, don’t forget to see what the other DT members at SGC have been up to.
