National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Two Scrapbook Friends National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Two Scrapbook Friends blog. I am super excited to be your first official stop along the way!!

My letter is S and my technique/element is splatter

I love to use paint and mist on my layouts because it adds a softer look with some extra colour to add to the background. For my technique I used water colour paints and splattered on my background.

As you can see in this photo I have white paint on my background. Another cool technique I added to my page using water colours is I used texture paste on my background and then painted over top of it with my water colours when it was dry to add some colour. It turned out great!!

Now you should hop over to Jayne's blog. And remember to leave a comment on each blog as you go. This way you will qualify to be in a draw for a fabulous Blog Hop prize. Have fun hopping!



Splattering paint is always a nice way to touch up a plain background! Nice layout!


You always rock the splatter! Great idea with the paste too


Like that you painted the paste!

I don't use paints and mists enough. You have inspired me to do so. Great layout (that little cutie is adorable!). Happy NSD!


Wonderful page Amanada


I have to admit, I don't use this technique quite often. Your page is gorgeous and it is a neat technique to add to the page.


Stunning Amanda! How ingenious to use texture paste for your title! Love it!!

I know I already commented on this when you first posted but I have to tell you that I nominated your blog for a Liebster award.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability
and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a awesome job with this.

Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.
Exceptional Blog!
