AN EXPLOSION OF COLOUR | with Erica

One of the many things I love about Doodlebug Design is all the COLOR. You can't help but smile when you see all their colorful products. I knew for my first project as a design team member I had to have a color explosion on my layout. I also wanted to use a cut file to showcase my style for you today. Cut files are a great way to make a big statement on your page and they are easy to work with. I backed my cut file with some colorful papers from the Swiss Dot 6x6 paper pad.
I dug into my favorite inks and found colors to match the colored swiss dot papers in my cut file. I took the ink pads and applied some ink to an acrylic block. Used my water bottle to add a couple squirts of water and then let the ink drip onto my paper. I tried to match up the same color ink with where the same colored paper would be on the layout. Once the ink was dripped onto my cardstock I used some packaging and smooched the ink around the layout. I love doing this to add that ever so popular water color look to my layouts. I pulled out two photos of our youngest son Liam Jay and his most favorite thing in the whole world..his stuffed baby sloth. This little buddy of his goes everywhere with him and it is the sweetest thing. I knew I had to document these photos.
I pulled out sprinkles in matching colors and also some Simply Spring ephemera and stickers. I absolutely love how this turned out. Here is a look at my completed layout
I hope this inspires you to pull out some of the colorful Doodlebug Design products and create a layout full of color!
