It’s Friday!!! Yipee!
I was productive yesterday and I finished two layouts! Ok, 1.5 because I had the other one half done. But either way that’s still the most LO I’ve made in a day. Still a record! This is for the challenge over at scrappiest. I used their sketch 46 and here it is.
I twisted the page to fit the portrait photos that I have and the paper. These are pictures taken from one of our Godfather's wedding last December 28, 2009. This was in Taal Vista Hotel which was also our wedding reception. It was one fine day and so we each took pictures of us with the amazing view.
Here’s the layout and I glad I finally got to use some of my old papers here. I’ve got tons of them! I’m also happy about this layout because I tried a few things I haven’t done before.
Close up of the rubber stamp I purchased from Stampin’ Place a while back. After stamping, I colored it with distress inks mixed with a bit of water. So there’s that watercolor effect. I also applied diamond glaze to the flower.
Here’s another thing I tried – I used tissue paper on here. I cut it in circles and crumpled it and then dipped the sides with crackle paint. I then layered the prima flower (accentuated with stickles) and center on top.
Just to show the detail of the title. I just doodled on the yellow pink paislee alpha for it to show through more.
Lastly, more stamping is done. I think I have like hundreds of stamps but I seldom or totally don’t use them on LO’s! For me, it’s just scary because if you make mistakes then what you’ve worked for just goes to waste. Anyhow, I said I would use most of my stamps these year so I did.
Here’s the close up of the butterfly stamps from Hero Arts. I love the butterfly trail from the small tree to the other. It somehow became perfect! I then just added some stickles to it.
Materials used for this layout:
PP: MME Abbey Road, Scrapworks, Cosmo Girl Friday, Around the Block Alpha: Pink Paislee, AC Thickers Embellisment: Prima Flowers and centers, Tissue paper Inks: Distress Inks, Stickles Tools: Hero Arts Butterfly stamp, Stampin Place Bird Stamp
Now, here’s the second layout. This is also from a sketch over at Inspired Blueprints. This is more simpler than the first one. These are pictures taken with my fave nephew and my mom over at UP Techno Park. This was taken on Dec 30, 2009. He had a blast with all the lights he saw there. I used BG Figgy Pudding that I won at a challenge.
I cut out the paper flowers from the pp, then applied bling. I also put liquid pearls on the alpha to give it a bit of highlight and then applied crackle paint and stickles on the corners.
