Urban Lily and Paints for play

Hello Everyone it's Gayle I am back with More Urban Lily goodness. I am happy to report that my first project Favorite Seven Girls was picked up by a magazine for publication this summer. I have shipped it to the publisher and will let you know the date for publication as soon as I know.

 The Urban Lily papers and product collections send my brain in to a totally different, fun creative mode. I love thinking up new ideas to use with these beautiful papers. I am really on a paint kick right now and my latest work is no exception. I think I use some form of paint on almost every project that I work on.

For this page I cut out portions of  a second page and attached it  with foam dots to add dimension to the page. I also spritzed the page with Shimmerz  Paints from the Vibez which gave the clear, clean crisp look of the collection a colorful pop. I tucked one for the booklet pages under the photo on the right  to allow for personalized journaling.

On this page I actually painted in some of the swirls on the top and bottom of the page and then spritzed paint around the edges to great a glowing effect on the page. The graphic elements on the paper  help to give the page a creative edge, while the paint and swirls lend softness to the overall design. I love the contrast of the two. I decided to keep this page  a monochromatic color scheme and focus on the photo.

I hope this gives you some quick and easy ways to personalize your pages and motivates you to play with the Urban Lily collections.
