New Layouts

This layout is titled Simple Pleasures. It is a picture of my youngest daughter testing out the water at Canadian Lakes Campground this past summer.

The layout features K & Company paper from the Charlotte line. This is a very pretty pack of paper.

I used eyelets to lace together two coordinating papers glued at an angle on the left. I used Heidi Swapp Ghost Hibiscus to do the masking on the underside of the photo. They are actually supposed to painted , inked or layered, but I chose to use them as a mask instead. They worked really well for it. The flowers are punched from the medium retro punch and are doubled to form a more rounded looking flower. The letters are printed from the computer, cut apart and inked using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink.
This layout is titled Senior and has a photo of my friend Jocelyn, who is a senior this year. Their school colors are red and black, so I used two sheets from the K& Company Christmas stack. These papers are very versatile and most can be used for layouts other than Christmas themed ones. The reds in these two papers were perfect for the look I need to get. I used a Tim Holtz Mask on the right and cut out a random design using my Cricut and the Sure Cuts A Lot program. The letters are from Heidi Grace and are actually the leftover punched out pieces from a set of letters I recently bought. After punching out the letters, the card board piece is great to use as a stencil.
This layout is titled Playful. The photo is of my youngest daughter Erica. I used two sheets of K&Company paper from the Christmas stack. Once again, these papers are very versatile and have a variety of potential uses. The letters are from Reminisce.

The picture was torn and glued to the paper, even though it looks as though I tore the paper. It's a really cool effect to try! I used crackle paint in the middle section to add some detail. It turned out really nice.

Thanks for dropping by!
