Hi, everyone! It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. 😀 I snapped this normal everyday pic of Madison one day when then kids were all camping out in the living room. She’s all snuggled up in her favorite blanket which was given to her by a friend of mine before she was even born.
To create my background, I used the Creative Embellishments Bokeh stamp with some gelatos. It didn’t turn out quite how I’d intended because after stamping with it, I had wanted to blur the lines a bit and misted it with more water. Too much water. lol So It’s splotchier than it started out being. After that goof, I had to continue with it, so I went ahead and made the rest of the background to match. lol I altered both the flourish and the Out of this World chipboard pieces with gelatos as well, but went with an acrylic paint on the Chunky Alphas. Here’s how it turned out:
Creative Embellishments Circle Bokeh stamp
CE Out of This World frame
CE Chunky Alphabet
CE Flourish set 15
13 Arts papers
Webster’s Pages charm and clip
lace from my stash
Design Memory Craft gelatos
doilies from my stash
Martha Stewart punches
For my page, I was inspired by the February mood board at Scrap Around the World:
I liked the circular scattered elements in the background of the lower left image and the colors from the chevron image. I also incorporated a touch of metallic elements inspired by the lower right image.
I also went with the February 1st Stuck?! Sketch to create my page:
Last but not least, Scrap Africa’s challenge #26 is to incorporate altered chipboard, so I’m entering that challenge with my page as well. TFL!
