So here is one great big blog post about some of the projects I've done in the last few weeks. Ready?
2010 YEAR IN REVIEW
Can I just say that I love, love, love this color combo?! Maybe it's because I'm so tired of seeing white snow everywhere I look, but this layout just makes me happy. :)
The title is printed onto a transparency. And notice the fun paint splatters? Those are some stamps I picked up at Michaels. Oh the possibilities!!
A little chipboard makes the perfect accent.
Have you ever tried stamping with bubble wrap? Well it's fun and almost as addictive as popping it. I painted a little acrylic paint with a foam brush directly onto the bubble wrap. Then "stamped" it onto the journaling block and a few other places on the layout. So fun and grungy looking!
IT'S A GOOD THING YOU'RE SO CUTE
This is my latest layout for Lucky Lark Designs. It's pretty simple, but I like all the details.
(Can you believe that mischievous baby boy is now 10!!! Where does the time go)?
I was having a hard time finding the "right" paper for this layout, so I decided to make a simple modification to something I already had. I cut the ledger paper into a bracket shape, then thinned some acrylic paint down with a little water. I painted a border around it without worrying too much about it being perfect. It added a little splash of color to break up the red/black/white theme I had going on.
I love texture on a layout! Adding tiny details, like the hand-stitched star, can make all the difference on a project.
Ahhh...time to dust off the ole' Silhouette machine again. The ticket design really caught my eye in their online store and I just couldn't resist!
Well, I still have more layouts that I made for the "Grandkids" album for Christmas. My goal is to have those posted this week. For now I think I'm calling it a day. Thanks for looking!
