love and happy.

Lets get this party started with a little bit of love for the ‘Sirena’ stamp and a fun candid picture form a fun weekend with our niece! I have to start by saying this is my favourite stamp from the last release and I don’t think I would be able to stop using it!!! So she will be my girl for this one:) So head to your stash, pick up a few fave supplies and lets get creating!!

Step 1

Once deciding where I would place my main image, I decided where my stamp would be placed. (they would go in the top left section of the layout.) So that’s exactly where I started, with a stamped image of ‘Sirena”. (tip: make sure to use a stamp pad with ink that won’t react with whatever sprays you use to maintain a crisp clean image)

I applied Golden fibre paste through a stencil peeking out around where my photo would be, and overlapping a bit of of the stamped image. I also applied some stencilling in the bottom right corner as well. Allow to air dry.

Select 3 co-ordinating spray colors and unscrew their tops off. Spray the stencilled areas with water. While the page is still wet use the ‘straw’ part of the sprayer and drag it along the edged of the paper and raised stencil areas. Dip the straw into the spray as much as needed to add more color. I made sure to apply all three colors together, while everything is still wet. I tilted the paper to allow for some beautiful drips. This also allows them to slightly blend together.

Step 2

To add a few details and enhance the stencilling from the previous step I messy sketched around the shapes with a permanent thin sharpie pen. I really love the look of a messy outline look!!

Behind where the focal point/photo will be I arranges some thread to peek out from behind the photo.

Step 3

Next up, arrange all of the goodies I have pulled out. These embellishments were super simple but effective to the layout and photo:)

I started with an assortment of white flowers. I sprayed then with the same spray colors from step 1.

A few tags, some scrap holes I cut off of watercolour paper pads and some flowers and I was set! I had a few leftover project life cards with the perfect sentiments for this layout!!

So the layering started, I made sure to arrange everything and generally lay it out before adhering anything down to make sure it looked good before making it permanent.

Once all of the embellies are stuck down and dry, I places a piece of scrap paper over my photo and took the same colors from Step 1 and splattered them over the stencilled areas… Then to tie it all together I added a few splatters of white gesso:)

And a few close ups!!!

The thing I love the most about this layout is that it doesn’t need a ton of supplies to create!!!!

Heart This

So its no secret that I love my fiance…Duh we wouldn’t be getting married otherwise!! lol! But, we realized after a super sad time, a friend passed away, that we had almost no photos together… we sat there at his funeral and watched the slide show full of love, smiles and happy times. At that time we realized that we had next to no photos of us doing everyday normal things.. we had the ones where we had a photographer take photos but almost none of us just doing everyday things together. So I made it my goal that we would fill our phones with photos of us doing the everyday! Jamie laughs every time I pull out my phone, but he gets it, he wants the same moments documented as I do. Plus he knows he is marrying a woman who likes to put everything onto a layout and show the world, so this will be his forever anyways!!

There are two reasons i told you that story… 1) the photo used in this layout is super random…. we were with our niece at a play park and i thought to myself “self, this would be a good time to document and remember!” 2)I wanted to remind you all that the everyday is just as important as this perfect, set up moments where you look perfect and exactly as you want to! The everyday messy hair, no make up photos are important as well! so take them! remember the everyday:)

so here it is… my next layout that was inspired by the everyday… this layout will remind me of a normal everyday moment every time I walk past it:)

Here is the full layout!
