another month, another reveal. =) this time we're heading to the planetarium. star charts and hearts and the loveliest of color combos... not to mention some rocking stamp sets. as of right now, the scrapbook kit, card kit and lyra add-on are still available. here's a look at the layouts i made this month :
this won't last // ah, those sweep naptime snuggles. as my littlest gets older, they're definitely something to savor - even when they're not at the best times. =)
i started this page by putting the blocks of patterened paper on the background, then i placed my mask on top and misted over them with the gray mini mist from neverland and mister huey's shine. i stitched around each block for a quilted look, then added a few elements over the misted paper. and i couldn't resist breaking out the mini anchor punch on an accent strip of patterned paper.
up // the stamp set in halley's comet is a new favorite, and as soon as i saw the "happy place" sentiment i thought of this photo. =) i stampedthe messy circle in different colors on the ledgers from big dipper, and then painted some water color circles on the same paper. i cut them out, randomly stitched them to my background, and then stacked some patterned papers to make the photo mat.
now & then // when we got ben's uniform for this year (SDSU Aztec #2!), i had to dig up photos from his very first teeball season when he was the same team & same number. (and incidentally, he still wears that shirt. it finally fits. HA).
i started the title with the ghost letters.. and then lost an "N" to The Mess. ack. minor moment of panic. then i grabbed my scissors and handcut a new one using the one I had as a guide, and did a few other letters (both alone and layered), to make it look intentional. gotta love happy accidents. =)
i punched the circles along the side of the cosmo paper for something else, but i loved the look of the negatives along the edge.i put a couple of foam adhesive dots under it to pop it up and added embellishments underneath.
i used some of the mixed tape neon huey on the background, then went over it with shine to tone it down a smidge. one of the wood veneer frames from lyra was a perfect way to make sure the photo was the focus of the page.
i'm not feeling quite done with this kit.... i'm planning to spend a bit more time working with it. perhaps for the upcoming studio calico NSD challenges?? ;)
