Go me! Done with page 7 of Hayden's monthly layouts! Its been a slow process but I am officially past the halfway point!
I started this layout by using papers from CCB's Snips n Snails paper pad. Then I arranged his photos at the top, and began embellishing around them. I fussy cut the airplane and all the word strips from the Snips n Snails as well.
Around the photos I added a few paper doilies, as well as some Jute Cord from CCB as well. I found some bright red brads in my stash that matched perfectly with the raffia that I used for a bow.
After I knew all the embellishments I wanted to use as well as where I wanted them to lay on the paper, I removed everything and added some splatter marks to the background paper. I used Tattered Angel's Lobster Glimmer Mist and Java Glaze for this. I hit the splatters with my heat tool and when they were dry, I adhered everything down.
...and as you can see, SOMEONE thought he could get his grubby hands on my layout while I was photographing it. Gotta work quickly with this little guy!!
I managed to put together a video of the process as well. Hope you enjoy it!
Here's a few fun products I used!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
