I have a fun layout for you today!! I’ve been organizing some of my old photos recently, and I found this gem from a trip my mom and sisters and I took a few years ago. The Christmas lights on Cinderella’s castle are simply amazing; perfect for a fun Disney layout.
Now, I do have a confession to make. I was disappointed with how the colors turned out. I used white texture paste through a stencil, and splashed colored inks onto those areas while the paste was still wet. I did not take into account how the inks would absorb together as things dried, and what the splashes looked like at first was very different to what they looked like after everything had dried.
I needed to do 2 things differently- first, I needed to be a lot lighter with my ink splashes. It doesn’t take a whole lot, but I have a hard time knowing when to stop. Second, I needed to let the ink and paste dry between each color I added so they wouldn’t blend together like they did. If too many colors blend together, they start to look brownish and dirty.
I am pleased with the white stamps and splashes, though, and the crystal gems add a nice sparkly touch. 🙂
All in all, though, it’s not too bad for a Disney layout. 🙂 What do you guys think? Do you have any more suggestions for how I could have done better with the colors and composition? I would love to hear your ideas and know-how.
Thanks for visiting today!!
