Loving Life with True Colors

Loving Life with True Colors
Hey everyone! This is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) with two layouts and process videos to share. Have you seen the True Colors collection? I am in LOVE!! This collection is so bright and colourful, and is go generic and therefore so easy to use and fantastic for scrapbooking all those everyday moments!
For my first layout I chose my favourite paper and tore a large piece for the top of the layout. I added a second torn strip under this in yellow. I mounted my photo onto contrasting black paper and added it to the clipboard ephemera from the Big Bits pack.
I created a big cluster with my photo on the left side of the layout. I layered my photo and clipboard with more ephemera pieces and also added some bright pink ink underneath to make it all pop right off the page!
I layered together two tags and added a large bow made from ribbon and made this into another smaller cluster at the top of the layout.
I felt the layout needed to be balanced out with something at the bottom, so I added another tag, some squares and frames fussy cut from patterned papers and some more Bits & Pieces, also with some bright pink ink underneath. This small cluster at the bottom really helped to balance out all the bigger elements at the top of the layout.
I embellished the layout with more Bits & Pieces, Decorative Brads, Cardstock Stickers and I also added a couple of titles from the Foam Stickers: ‘hi’ and ‘love this’ speech bubble – how cool!
I finished off with splatters of black paint, a few sequins and my handwritten journaling. I absolutely love how this layout turned out, it’s so fun and super bright and colourful!! Here is the link to my process video if you would like to see how the layout came together: https://youtu.be/UH467qUpi2E 
For my second layout using True Colors, I had a great photo of me taking a photo so I decided to tell the story of me being the photographer of the family!
I choose the big camera from the Big Bits pack and fussy cut the middle part out. I used this as a frame for my photo, which fit behind the aperture perfectly! I positioned this in the centre of my layout together with some Floral Bits.
I choose a few titles from the Foam Stickers pack, and arranged them in a stacked vertical design but I felt the layout was a little empty. I came across the patterned paper with all the cameras all over it – perfect! I added strips of this to each side of the layout , which I edged with some green ombre paper. This looked great!
I created two more little clusters to the layout, one at the top right edge and one at the bottom left edge. These consist of smaller cameras from the Bits & Pieces, along with some Cardstock Stickers and Decorative Brads.
I also embellished the middle section of the layout with more of these gorgeous embellishments: more Bits & Pieces, more Floral Bits, more Decorative Brads, more Cardstock Stickers and Enamel Dots too.
I finished off with some sequins, some black paint splatters and my journaling, which I wrote directly onto the large camera!
I’m so happy with these layouts, I just love all the bright colours and the cameras have my heart! Here is the link to the process video for this one: https://youtu.be/xZwP3ssMHCE 
Happy scrapping
