yay new layout! it was really scary because i had never done so many contrasting patterns on the layout before! less is usually more with me, but i went for it! it was really fun and I highly recommend it.
my crazy cluster of random crap. hehe. is it just me, or is it whenever someone laughs and spells it "hehe" it makes it sound like old-man creepy?
i really wanted the white cardstock to be a piece of lace, but i was fresh out of lace it felt like the whole project was getting a little left-heavy (lol), so i added some brads to the right side of the photo to help balance the layout
thanks for looking! comment & tell me what ya think!
I took this first picture at night, so it looks a bit yellower than it really is. i LOVE glitter, but wanted to try something different, so instead i used sequins to outline my title block as well as underline my journaling at the bottom. the next day, i hated the unfinished look of the red sequins at the end, so i later went back and tucked the ends back under.
all the girl embellishments seemed to be hot pink or equally girly color, so i took my permanent marker and glitter glue and made them match my layout.
and finally, some transparency paper and some more permanent marker and glitter glue, tada!
Our friends and I went to Last Vegas for the 4th of July this past year, and our favorite part was simply doing nothing and laying out by the pool!
i really like using black and white photos because it doesn't really constrict you to using any color scheme you want. i do like my geometric layouts, very horizontal and vertical for sure. i found these really cute buttons that were vegas themed, so i cut the backs off and glued them as embellishments! plus, i love glitter
so, this is more back to my style of scrapbooking; neat, even (i'd like to think!) and not too wild. i've been on a ribbon kick lately and here is installment number 3 of the journey. the picture is actually from this past may. a few of us went to go see the no doubt reunion tour, which was amazing! what a great picture to use for the whole year than one of me at the epitome of happiness
i know you can bareeeely tell, but i used crystal gems as the dots after "I love..."
My other love is eyelets. LOVE them. & i've been liking the look of staples for some reason? do YOU like them? hate them? let me know!
My roommate & I went to the San Diego Fair & took these silly photobooth pics. After we got our faces painted, no less .
I love it because this was my first time using plain white cardstock as my background. I had to resist the urge to use patterned paper, and use ribbon to add color and texture. At the end I actually ended up painting a light border around the page, so I gave in a little!
I love the little blue dots & rub-ons on the photo.
I cut out and painted some patterned paper and added a button for some buckness. Lol. Thanks for looking!
I absolutely love this girl. Which is why I had to make a layout that encompassed the special person that she is.
This was my first time using chipboard letters... you actually will be able to tell now that I say this, but there was only one "F", so I ended up creating a second one by cutting it freehand out of the remaining chipboard. I also handpainted the flower embellishment since nothing really matched my color scheme...
I also used these white stick on brads... you get the same look and feel, but without the hassle!
I love this layout because I would never ever have done it! I'm very much a horizontal and vertical layout type of person. The picture is offset in the circle (yes, my puppy is wearing makeup, haha. don't worry it's cruelty free)
I usually don't use more than one type of mixed media (buttons, ribbon, gems, stickers, silk flowers), let alone several different types of patterned paper, and PINK! (it's definitely not a favorite color of mine)
I very much enjoyed branching out and putting this together for my puppy.
Thanks for looking !! I really appreciate any comments.
