I have recently been into doing more 12x12 layouts. Here are two of my most recent ones.
This layout is titled "Lily & Me" I embossed around the edge of the paper then painted over it. I used distress paints and stains and also liquitex acrylic paint. I used Heidi Swapp color shine sprays and color magic paper. I love how this one turned out.
I titled this layout "fill today with light and LAUGHTER and love". I printed "fill today with light and laughter" on vellum that I found on Heidi Swapps blog. It was a free printable that you can find here. I used liquitex paint on the background and also made splatters with color shine in mustard. I layered papers stickers and star sequins to get this look.
