Using up left over alphas | May Color Kitz | Brandy Vaughn

Hello, friends! I have a new layout for you using the beautiful May Color Kitz!

I have wanted to try this technique for a couple of years. I have been toting around a nearly used-up set of alphas that I couldn't make any more words with, just knowing I would do this. When I saw the colors included in this month's kit I knew the time had come!

I started by gluing the letters down in a circle, including the title. Then I covered the whole thing in gesso. When that dried, I added a layer of white acrylic paint. Now the magic begins. I sprayed a layer of water over the whole thing, then randomly sprayed around Vibes in Don't Rain On My Parade and Spritz Powder Puff, then blended with a wet brush until I achieved my desired result. 

Next, I came in with a layer of Inklingz Burnished Buckle just over the letters, working the color into the edges really well. I added a couple of layers of Shimmerz Antique Lace on top of the title letters to help them stand out from the rest.

Next, I die-cut several leafy bits from a piece of paper that comes in the kit. I also added the May circle scalloped cut file to frame the whole thing. Then I embellished with some ephemera pieces from the kit and this one is all done!

I really hope you like it! I kind of surprised myself on this one, lol. You can check out my process video here:
