Colors & Fuzzy Cutting

It has been a while since I used a lot of colors in one page. I used to love so many colors when I was just started this hobby. I am also a huge fan of fuzzy cutting but with a limited time to craft nowadays, due to work, I rarely do it anymore.

For this page, I challenged myself to try my "Used to be" style when I started scrapbooking. I searched my stash and gathered supplies that has lots of pop of colors. I also did some layering of some fuzzy cut pieces from patterned papers.

For the Vine Flourish, I just painted it with white gesso, added a clear crackle paint and some stickles. I wanted the effect to be soft and neutral to look as if it was an extension of the photos. 

For the butterfly, I used a lot of liquid pearl to get the embossed and shiny look. I love how the texture looked like when it got dried.

I adore the bird cages. They are so cute especially with color. I have used the bib size and the tiny version of this cages. Both were painted with teal acrylic, used some crackle paint and glimmer glaze.
