Life is Good ……..

……. when it is bright and colourful!  

You might need your sunglasses on for this layout I am sharing today! The layout started out as a challenge to use pink, turquoise and lime green and  …… well it would be a shame not to combine my favourite Dylusions sprays!

This was a really quick and simple layout to put together.  I took a sheet of white card stock and using this wonderful antique clock mask I sprayed areas with Dylusions Sprays: Bubble Gum Pink, Fresh Lime and Vibrant Turquoise.

It did take a little time to dry as I didn't want to mop any of the colour up.  The card stock was really saturated so I just left it to dry overnight.

Then it was a case of finding some similar coloured papers - just a couple of torn pieces behind the photograph and the rest for making these lovely little flowers using the Donna Salazar Bitty Blossoms Die.

I tried the Dylusions Spray on this chippie but it didn't take well, so out came the Peeled Paint Distress Ink and once dried I dabbed a little Picket Fence Distress Paint here and there.

Given the bright colours I didn't want to add too much so I kept the embellishments light, just adding a little green ribbon at the bottom of the page.

I hope this might encourage you to have a go at a sprayed scrapbook background.  It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do another one!
