Picture Perfect in San Francisco - My Creative Scrapbook

 Hello everyone!

I'm sharing my fourth layout with the beautiful January Main kit from My Creative Scrapbook. This awesome kit features the American Crafts Go The Scenic Route collection by Paige Evans. But did you know that each month you also get access to fabulous cut files from PearTree Cut Files? I used two more cut files on this layout, the Snowflake Heart and the Picture Perfect with Camera. I still hadn't used the Prima Color Spray that was included in the kit, so once again, I created a mixed media background with this spray. It's different from other spray mists I've used. I didn't soak into the paper right away as I expected. I used no gesso. It dried with this really cool shine and mottled effect. I added some blue spray mist splatters for interest.

I cut the picture perfect cut file out of black cardstock and backed it with pattern papers. It's an awesome cut file for travel photos. I am definitely going to use this one again to document another trip.

I cut the snowflake heart out from pattern paper. I love the variegated blue/green tones. I wanted to use a photo that complimented those colors. This one of my daughter from a trip to San Francisco was perfect. 

This chinatown mural is amazing! I matted the photo in multiple layers of pattern papers that help to emphasize those colors and tore the bottom edge.

I embellished with chipboard stickers, creating a triangle to draw the eye around my layout. The San Francisco colorful Thickers I pulled from my stash.

This was another really fun layout to create. You can watch my process here.
