Welcome back everyone. Today I have a layout to share using items from my stash. The photo is a picture of my daughter and her friend (face blocked for privacy). One day her friend's mom gave me a call to see if the girls wanted to go out. Of course!
Here is an all over picture of the layout. For the background I splattered it with some of my homemade brown ink and Gold Heidi Swapp ink. I also added some stamping using Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up! ink.
For this layout I mostly stuck with "flat" emblishments using paper to create most of the texture on the page. I used various papers, stickers, and die-cuts layted to give a chunky look to the pictures. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz - Walnut stain.
The title is made using foam Thickers and I really like how the color of the title pops on the page and brings out some of the aqua colors from the paper.
On the right side I added a banner for some visual weight and grounding of the picture and just kept tucking paper, stickers and die-cuts. To bring the aqua of the Thickers around the page, I used the asterisk that came in the pack in the embellishment clusters.
I also added more stamping around the layout using phrase stamps from Technique Tuesday - Ali Edwards line. I really like the little added detail that it provides. Not to mention, I'm using my stamps on my layout which I sometime struggle with.
That is it for today. Hope you enjoyed.
