There is a new article on the Get It Scrapped blog today. The article talks about creative ways to use negative space in your scrapbook pages. I contributed this page about a promise to my son of getting Slurpees since we missed free Slurpee day.
When working in negative space, I find using larger space easier to work with. I cut the design out then set it aside. I used the remaining cut out piece as a mask and sprayed ink over it in 3 colors. Each time I changed colors, I rotated the paper. I laid the die cut back down on the misted background and this is the result; color mixed with white. In the negative space you see peeks of color, a lot of color and almost no color. I achieved the effect I was looking for, a slight mirror of the Slurpee cup.
Thank you for taking a look at my creative view today. I'll be back tomorrow with more from Get It Scrapped and another surprise.
