Dream Squad Layout


Hello everyone!

For those who do not know me, my name is Zoey and I am a mixed media artist from Italy.
I am really happy to be here and share with you my first project for this awesome team!

To create this project I used scrapbooking paper and embellishment included in our amazing kit — you can find all the info over here.

I used a watercolor paper for the base of my layout and I cut it down to a A4 size paper.

I randomly covered the background with gesso, I used a spatula to apply it. I let it dry completely. Once the background was dry I took the Twinkling H20’s that were included in the kit and I started having fun with them!

Twinkling H20’s are so easy to use and they are so vibrant – I love their color and I was so happy that the color palette included in the kit had some of my favorite colors! For this project I used the shade of blue and green.

From the scrapbook paper included in the kit I cut a circle shape and then I cut another circle inside it. I was left with a “ring” and I cut it out in little pieces. I used again Twinkling h20’s to add some color and I let it air dry. When dry I glued it down to my background.

I added a couple of stamps here and there but I wanted to keep this layout “pretty simple” (LOL)

I stitched all around the background and over the circle I just made and then I started building up my layout.

I printed my favorite photo of my four best friends – I love this photo so much because it reminds me of a night where we went to a restaurant and we had so much fun. I stacked the photo with some old book page behind it and then I simply glued it down. I made sure to not glue the entire cluster so that I could add some more bit and pieces here and there behind the photo.

I cut out two tickets from the paper sheet included in the kit and to make it blend with the background I added some color with the Twinkling H20’s.

The word Dream is also included in the kit and I think it is AMAZING for the title of my layout! You can find gold in the tickets too!

Here’s another look at the focus of my layout…

And here’s the final page:

As you see I don’t go by rules. I don’t care what the protocol say… I just go with what my emotions tells me.
So I hope you enjoyed this project and that you will be inspired by it!
Thank you for stopping by!
Ciao Zoey
