oh my goodness summer is flying by! I can't believe its already the end of July. Ok, I don't want to believe it. I realize I haven't shared here in quite some time, but in all fairness summertime is so busy. I feel like I barely have any time to scrap let alone blog. Summer is birthday season at our house, we've got May, June, July and August, so that always makes for a busy summer. My oldest son just turned 7 last week. Someone pinch me. That sweet baby boy is already 7. He is so witty, charming, and handsome. Gosh, love that boy. Anyway, I thought I would share some of my favorite layouts I've made in the past while.
This was another one for a lesson in Paige's class. Another one of my favorites. Surprising since it was one of those layouts where it was totally perfect, and then you have an idea. And once you execute said idea you step back and say "oh crap. what did I.just.do." I had the whole thing laid out but felt like that map was missing something. some interest. So i pulled out my water colors. But when I put the paint to the page the paper absorbed the color in a very strange way causing streaks and not the watery look. Not to mention the paper buckled like crazy. I could've put down gesso first but I didn't want to mute the map print of the paper. In the end I used gelatos, no water and blended blended blended. I love the end result even tho the buckled paper annoys me. The beautiful photo of my husband and daughter evens it out. :) all the supplies for this page are from Studio Calico.
Thanks for stopping by, and listening, or reading rather, to me ramble. Hope you'll stop by again, I'm going to leave you with this super sweet picture of my daughter. She turns 2 in 2 weeks, someone hold me. She is just the cutest, I think I bought these adorable glasses just to take a picture of her in them, ha! I want to blow this up to 12x12 I just love it. Bye guys!
