I adore this picture of my husband and our son! I knew the layout needed to be special. I absolutely love the way it turned out!!
I used Sketch #119 from Let's Capture Our Memories for this page. I loved the layers and the simple potential. I hunted for supplies through my stash for this layout. I used a simple piece of gray cardstock, and gave it a few spritz and splats of Dylussions white misting ink. I ended up ironing the paper afterward to help it to lay a bit more flat. It didn't come out perfectly flat, but it was better. I hunted for all sorts of buttons and such from different collections I had laying around. I love how it all came together.
I looked for any button, chipboard, or wooden nickel with the mint/aqua and gray color to them. Just a little bit of gray baker's twine made the embellishments come together.
I used a phrase from a set of foam Thickers that I had in my stash. I worked perfectly with this page. I typed and printed my journaling, and cut it into strips. I love showcasing my journaling this way.
I also get to use this layout for a challenge from Red Carpet Studio. I love when my layouts fit for multiple challenges! RCS challenge #98 was inspired by the move Overboard, which is one of my most favorite movies! The challenge was to use a masculine and a feminine element on your page. My masculine element is the dark gray background and the black letters. The feminine element is the soft mint/teal colors in the papers and embellishments, and the little bow of baker's twine.
Thank you for taking a look at my layout. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Please leave me your thoughts. Thanks!
