So, have you played along yet with the latest issue at Paper Issues? On Monday, I shared the exciting news that 17turtles is the sponsor for this issue. The current issue is called Eggs-cellent Add-ventures and I invite you to head over to the Paper Issues blog to get all of the details about it.
Of course, I had to play along, so I created a Easter themed layout using one of the new cut files that I created for this issue called Happy Hoppy Easter. Last Easter, I was inspired to create a Easter Basket Peep Cake for our family Easter dinner after seeing one on Pinterest. I love all things Peeps, so no one was surprised that I made it! And of course, it was quite yummy!
As you can see, I used the trio of bunnies from the Happy Hoppy Easter cut file. I cut them from cardstock in colors that matched the Peeps and then adhered them to my layout.
CUSTOM SPRAY INK COLORS
You might have noticed some ink splatters on my layout. When I began to select the colors I wanted to use, I realized that all of my colors were too bold and bright. I needed something more pastel to better coordinate with the papers I was using. My dear friend Tracey (who was over at my house scrapping for the day) suggested that I mix the colors with white. It worked perfectly!
I used a paint mixing tray. I poured in some of the white ink and then added a drop or two of color. I then the colors to mix them together. The white toned the bright colors down and gave me the perfect pastel colors that I was looking for!
I wanted to remind you that I have three brand new cut files that were created especially for the Paper Issues Eggs-cellent Add-ventures Linky Party and they are now available in the 17turtles Digital Cut Files Shop! You can click the links below to find them in the shop.
