This month we are excited to welcome Alice to our design team! She came up with an absolutely gorgeous first layout for us, and we have decided to feature it in this month’s kit. You are in for a treat- Alice has her own YouTube channel, and she created an entire video tutorial explaining how to make her layout (it makes my job a lot easier too!). You can see the video by clicking here, or access Alice’s YouTube channel at the following URL: https://www.youtube.com/user/ScrapbookWonderland .
Here are some close-ups of her layout so that you can get a better idea of the dimension and layering Alice used:
As Alice explains in her video, the only thing she used from outside the kit was her pen and Tim Holtz Distress Oxides. Have you tried the Distress Oxides? I love how they have such strong solid colours and that you can apply them the same as a water colour paint to get some really interesting backgrounds. The colour variety is also awesome because you can almost always match the paper you are using. If you can’t you can also mix and layer the colours to alter them, as Alice explains in her video.
Even if you don’t have the kit, Alice has some awesome tips for balancing the elements in your layout and applying distress oxides, so check out the video link above to learn more!
