I am slowly working on my baby’s scrapbook album so when I don’t feel like scrapping recent photos I go through the piles of photos that I have printed and pick something that makes me happy. For this layout I found a cute picture of the two boys to scrap when the baby was about 5 months old. I really wanted to try out my inner Wilna Furstenberg with this layout and that is exactly what I did.
I prepped my page with some gesso and then used my acrylic paint to create the background for my layout. When I use a lot of mixed media or paint to create my background I tend to stay away from the embellishments. I will say that this is not one of my favorite layouts but I did enjoy creating it and trying out some new techniques. I think the layout ended up turning out to be to dark and probably needed some white paint thrown on top of it somewhere to lighten it up. Let me know what you think in the comments.
