"Bubbles" by ~ Donna

Hello my peeps! It's been so busy in the Salazar household. My daughter turned 21 last month, I had 2 nephews graduate from high school and my grandson turned TWO. It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies!!! With a household of 6 people there never seems to be enough time in the day to document the day to day. I hadn't created a layout in close to a year but was able to squeeze in some time to create a layout of my grandson's new love of bubbles. 

You can check out my new "bubble" technique created with my new products on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.

Here are some photos of the layout with some tips on how to use some of my products from Clearsnap®/Colorbox® for mixed media effects.

I started with a white piece of card stock.  I wanted to use several resist techniques so I created my own swirl stamp using my 3D Foam Swirls from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and used my Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx® from Colorbox® to stamp a few swirls around the area where the photo was going to be. I then used my Patina Mix'd Media Inx® and my bubble wrap stamp randomly around the page. I finished this first stage by adding some repositionable E-Z Dots® (for some random tiny dots) and some of my new E-Z Stars. I sprinkled clear embossing powder over the entire page and heat set it. 

I used my Mix'd Media Inx® CHOX in Midnight with my Crackle stamp around the area where the photo was going to be and stamped the words onto white paper. I used my Mix'd Media Inx® in Denim on the circles that I punched out of the top layer of cardboard as well as the edges of the Creative Photo Corners in kraft. I then blended the Denim Mix'd Media Inx® over random areas on the background but especially around the embossed elements. I used a baby wipe to wipe the Inx off the embossing and to create a smooth blended edge.  I finished by adding a tiny bit of my River Mossy Smooch Spritz®.

Below is a close up of some of the details on the layout.
