Time to Play, Live Laugh and Love Layout!

It's been ages since I have done a layout, but armed with some new supplies that I purchased yesterday I decided to scrap the one and only photo of Rod and I which I like taken from our recent holiday to New Zealand.  Its like a once a year occurrence for me, allowing a photo to be taken of myself and this one had a bit of significance given it was a few days before my birthday and this holiday was also our way of celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary.

Supplies Used:

  • Gesso
  • Acrylic Paint:  Colors Tropical Water and Yellow Oxide
  • Lindy's Stamp Gang:  Industrial Chic Starburst Sprays in Shabby Turbine Teal, Steampunk Sepia and Steel Shimmer.
  • Carabelle Studio Stamps:  French Lilly Background and Layered Strips by Birget Koopsen
  • Digital Chalkboard Sentiments by Gecko Galz
  • Black Archival Ink
  • Punchinella
  • Very Vanilla and Soft Suede Cardstock
  • Chipboard Stars, Die Cut Leaf & Gold Sequins from Embellishment Stash.

Smearing Paint, Spraying Color and Fussy Cutting was just what I needed to be doing this morning, I was Home Alone, enjoying the Peace and Quiet and avoiding the heat of the day (another extreme heatwave kinda day).  I am really happy with the color combo and how this page turned out given how long its been since I have done any scrapping.

I can see lots of potential for these beautiful new stamps and the chalkboard sentiments too!

Fabulous scrap page Danie. I love all the different media that you have going on on the page. A lovely picture of you and your husband. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015. Another year has come to a close or soon will and I am not quite sure where all the time goes.

Take care

A great photo and well do page. Just enough busyness and color to add interest and still keep the photo central. Very artistic and creative.
