i shared earlier i would be back with a look at how i am going to begin to document this girl's california adventure. this is only the beginning...don't say you weren't warned.
pink and black seemed to be what popped for this photo.
even though minnie is in red...(did she NOT get the memo?) i think the colors still work.
i love this pattern paper that belongs to the Sugar Chic collection. the collage of words and script and images that runs along the right side always brings me in. that little label space is begging to be filled.
of course layers have to be apart of a page of mine.
and stamps...do you ever get in the mood for a certain technique? stamps have always been a favorite supply of mine...and i am breaking them out and putting them to work again. sort of a little addicted to the stamps currently.
the layers are home to hidden journaling and another photo, which i will share in a minute.
a few of my favorite things...
here a piece of ColorMagic paper is colored with Blush Color Shine...that has got to be my new favorite color of present. it is so gorgeous.
i took a plain o' shipping tag and notched it and layered it with seam binding (dyed in Blush no less) on top of the resist paper.
love these chipboard stickers found at Michaels too...they are whimsical and on trend and full of great iconic embellies to tell the story.
more stamps and splatters and stenciled polka dots make me smile at this little embellishment cluster.
this layout page is interactive and hides a few words and another favorite photo. seems to be another go to technique i continue to employ. i think often we feel like we have to recreate the wheel each time we make a page and share a story. i say do what you know and love. so much of this page is just that.
just took another piece of ColorMagic paper and basically made a card with it.
folded over it is attached on the back to the background paper.
a look at all the dimension.
this is just the beginning of many photos and projects i have in my head to document this recent trip.
more ideas than i will probably actually use...
but i love having a bank of creativity waiting for me.
and more than that...i love having these stories to tell and am eager to get them all down on paper.
have a fabulous weekend.
