Scraplift Sunday with McJen

Hello Paper Issues friends!

Thank you for joining in on the fun today as I share a project for this week's Scraplift Sunday Challenge using Anita's gorgeous layout as inspiration.

While Anita's project is beautiful and feminine in nature, I went the opposite direction and created a boy layout using the My Mind's Eye Blast Off collection available in the Paper Issues Store.

First, I used shimmery white watercolor paint and smooshed it onto the background paper. That was followed by splatters of the same paint in white and blue. I used the exclusive Paper Issue's Blast Off! free cut file with the hologram paper in the MME collection where Anita used a flower.

Embellishing was next and I used the ephemera and enamel dots from the same collection.

At the urging of my son, I added a bit of journaling to the layout and called it good.

I love Anita's original layout and the inspiration she provided.

Everything used to create this project can be found in the Paper Issues Shop. Remember to use code McJen at checkout for a 20% discount on your entire order.
