Mixed Media Hot Air Balloon Scrapbook Layout with Stenciled Clouds and Wood Veneer Project Life Card

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing an uplifting mixed media scrapbook layout featuring hot air balloons. Several hot air balloons launched next to the soccer field my daughter was playing on earlier this year. It is hard to get the team to focus during ideal conditions, so these balloons were definitely a distraction! I rarely see hot air balloons so I thought it would be fun to document this experience. Of course, I was able to find plenty of items to coordinate with my photo in the Creative Embellishments Store!

How to Use Paint Pens to Add Color to a Wood Veneer Hot Air Balloon Project Life Card

I thought the Soar 3×4 Wood Veneer Card was the perfect addition to this page. I colored the card with acrylic paint pens for a quick and easy finish. I used the Cloud Border Stencil with molding paste to fill in the white space at the top and bottom of the layout.

I added a design from the Hot Air Balloon 2 Set and used acrylic paint pens to apply color to the chipboard embellishment.

How to Stamp and Journal on a Photo

I didn’t have a lot of space left for journaling with the busy patterned papers and stenciled areas on this layout, so I decided to stamp and write directly on the photo.
