Precious Moments | Niki Rowland

Hiya Shimmerz Fanz! Niki here with you today with this layout that I've created by making a messy background and also colouring a cut file.

I started off by making the water colour style background using various colours of Vibez: Sweet Heart, Pop Art Pink and Jeni B Blue, and one Spritz in Cotton Candy. I Also added watered down Dazzlerz Sea U in the Morning' and Tutti Frutti, both with the packaging technique in the same way as I added the sprays.

I set the background aside to dry and then set about colouring the cut file. I simply used my finger to apply Dazzlers and Texturez straight from the jars. I used Tutti Frutti, Dreamscicle, Crushed Coral and Sea U in the Mornin'. I also mixed Tutti Frutti and Dreamsicle together to form a new colour and added that too. I coloured the whole of the cut file, but kept the colours as pale as possible.

While that was drying, I fussy cut half-heart shapes to back-fill the cut file with. I didn't back fill every openeing as I wanted some of the background to show through the cut file.

I then added the cut file over the background but the bright pink was a little too bright so I then arranged my photos and a frame onto my layout over that bright area to dull it down a bit! I added lots of embellishments and that dark tag to bring in the dark colour of my little girl's uniform.

Thanks so much for joining me today - there is a process video of this layout too which you can view below.
