Best Summer

Hi friends! I'm here with a really fun layout for More Than Words and Lindy's Stamp Gang challenges. Give a click to check out all the fantastic inspo! The pics are so awesome from one of our beach days in Corona Del Mar. My son and granddaughter spend hours in the water and love riding the waves.

Here's More Than Words mood board -

Lovely! I use music all the time for titles or some verbiage in my layouts.

This layout is loaded with fun mixed media. Stencil and texture paste, lots of misting and splatting. I just feel the water when I look at it. My song was Listen To Your Heart from Roxette and I pulled the line Lost in the tide. I punched circles and wrote the words then inked and popped it all on foam squares.

I cut the shells and Best Summer with my cameo, I added homemade dots and seed beads along with glass glitter.

The background has such a lovely sea feel and the pics are perfect.

Here's Lindy's color board -

I used a brush to add the color for a bit more control over where I wanted it, then some splatting for layered color. Lindy's gives such a vibrant pretty effect. I love them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Feeling Alright!

Hiya friends! June has flown by and I'm loving July so far :) It is scorching here in So Cali! 108 today MAN!!!

Today I have a layout of my son Santino who did a day camp for one week in June on a horse ranch. This boy had a blast! I'm entering it in More Than Words Challenge and Lindy's Stamp Gang color challenge. Please go give them both a visit! Here are the moodboards.

And here is my layout -

I used Kaisercraft paper that I've had for a while along with texture paste and stencil for some background work. I think the brown string gives a nice western feel. I used some gorgeous Lindy's mists to add some color to the stenciling and on the arrows. I also colored the title with the mists which was cut with my cameo.

The colors I used for misting and background work -

bachelor button blue
mission bells brown
bells of Ireland green

All About The Moms!

Hi friends! I'm here with my layout for More Than Words May challenge! I know I know it's the very very very last day of the month lol! I was busy, see my mom visited from NY for two weeks and I needed to finish up a swap :)

Here's the beautiful inspo for this month -

Always spectacular! If you have't checked them out pleas click on their blog name or on my sidebar. Here is my layout -

I used papers I've been hoarding for WAY too long!!! What is it with us papercrafters and paper hoarding ;) This was My Mind's Eye Lost and Found. Delicious!

I used flowers from Petaloo as well as I Am Roses, some Lindys for the flowers and background splats, pretty Prima glassbeads in red and some pink thread. The chippie is from 2 Crafty. Let me just say they have some darn awesome chippies! I inked, misted, then embossed it. I really don't use red all that often paper wise, but this one made me happy.

I popped the pic of mom and I and the matting for some dimension, and I cut some banners, I stinking love banners! My texture paste background was done with a flower stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. I used my silhouette cameo to write the title and cut the banner for it. The pic was from a visit three years ago and we took mom to the beach. We love the beach if you haven't figured that out yet lol!

Thanks for coming by, have a grest rest of the week!
