Tracey - Neon Kit - Beach Bums

Hey everybody! It's Tracey here! I've got another neon kit layout for you, I managed to KILL this kit I loved it so much. My last layout is 'Beach Bums', enjoy!

Recently, I have rediscovered my absolute admiration for stamps, I also love the look of messy mixed media, so, can you guess what my favourite stamp is? A paint splatter stamp.  I purchased this stamp set from Close to My Heart and I haven't really used it much, after this layout I know I definitely will be giving it more of the attention that it deserves!

To begin my layout I randomly stamped a mix of the splatter stamps in an assortment of different colours from Close to my Heart. I tried to keep the colours away from each other and tried to spread out each individual stamp design. I adore the look that this creates, a simple, clean but effective background.

I then went through my scraps and pulled out a mix of pink, blue yellow and purple off cuts to use for some layers, I wanted to continue the messy feel of the layout so I made sure that my layers weren't all the same size and didn't always cover the photo.

I then started to have a dig into what was left of the exclusive neon kit, a pink felt bow, two orange ribbon roses, the tiniest little bit of washi, some green floral felt and an orange heart paperclip. I glued the bow and roses to the top left corner of the photo and placed the washi underneath to help even out the big pink layer that was sticking out from the right hand side.  I then attached the heart paper clip to the bottom left of the photo and added my title in pink Kaisercraft alphas.

I later outlined the white cardstock in a hot pink fine liner to pull the layout together.

Don't forget, our first monthly kit is released APRIL 1ST!!


  1. Love the fresh colours and the way you made the layout balanced in the centre of the page.

  2. Thanks! Wouldn't have been able to do it without the great kit
