I'm so excited to be making my first post here on the Speedy Scrappers blog. And even more excited to let you know that this is just a peek at all the awesomeness that was sent my way! If you've been following the blog then you've seen some awesome projects from my fellow dt members already and I can guarantee there is even more fun in store for you!
Ok, enough with the chit chat here's my layout:
This layout is about my 3yr old son "reading" the map at the zoo last spring and this paper from Studio Calico Wanderlust was perfect for it! I started with this fun paper that reminded me of a map as my background and then tore two of the other prints to layer over it for the base beneath my photos.
Those strips you see going behind my photo are from an adhesive sheet! Made by Crate Paper, it's an entire sheet of strips that you just cut up, peel and stick! So fun, I'm excited to use more.
As you can see I just had a bunch of fun layering, tearing and adding this and that from my stash too. I used markers and inks on my wood veneer, they color up really easy, and then added some fun washi tape to the corners of my photos.
Lastly I inked my edges with a charcoal and then ran a dark brown pad around it too. I love the 'finished' look it gives a layout.
Head to the store and pick up this fun Studio Calico paper! It's got some fantastic prints. I think the next one I want to play with will be the orange, yellow & pink polka dot. Such a great color combo!
Thanks for stopping by today! You can find us on facebook too.
See you next week.
