Buttered Toast Scrapbook Page Week #32

Hi Rose here! Today, I am going to share with you two things, a little secret about me and a very, quick, easy, and fun, multi-photo scrapbook layout. I'm in love with Snapchat. The filters bring me so much laughter that I check in every single morning to start my day. If you're not familiar with Snapchat, it's an app on your phone. It has a series of filters that can alter your appearance, voice and even interact when you raise your eyebrows or open your mouth. It has a lot of other cool features going on, but for the sake of this post, you get the gist. 

My daughter had discovered the newest Snapchat filter (unbeknownst to her, I had already discovered it). Bread! She says to me "mom, they have bread", I responded with "I know", she says, "I wish it would put butter on me when I open my mouth" as she swiftly sent me a snap. When I received it, I laughed so hard. I had to screenshot it for future laughs and entertainment. This post contains affiliate links.

"If buttered toast is what she wants, buttered toast she shall have!"

Buttered Toast Scrapbook Page

Start with a piece of white cardstock. I want the focus to remain on the images and speak the title loudly, so I kept the background very simple. 

Blend white gesso and Clearsnap Smooch Spritz in sun kissed to create creamy buttery yellow. Then add in gel paste to give it a bit of depth for the effect of slathered butter.

Using a palette knife spread on as you would butter on toast. Use a heat tool to dry or set it aside to dry over night.

Print images and fussy cut the "pieces of bread". With my HP Printer, I used HP Snapshots to print my snapchat images. I love the HP Snapshots because they're already adhesive. Much like stickers, just peel the plastic backing and adhere to your projects.

Next, adhere your images. Embellish with eggs and bacon embellishment stickers (so simple and so easy) and add title using letter stickers.

Lastly, add journaling, This Buttered Toast Scrapbook Page would not have been complete without the inclusion of the memory.

Have you ever tried creating your own "medium" for mixed media backgrounds? 
Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear your ideas.
