Good morning, it's Mary-Ann! I would like to share a colorful layout with you.
Indecision is a common occurrence in our house. My son has acquired this attribute from his father. It takes them both FOREVER to make a decision. I can not remember how long we stood in this aisle at Wal-Mart. I may have blocked it from my memory. I, on the other hand, do things on impulse. The quicker the better.
I just love how this photo captures my son intently researching this Nerf gun. The colors in the Echo Park papers worked perfectly to bring my rather dark, semi-blurry photo to life.
I decided that papers from both "Scoot" and "All About A Boy" from Echo Park would help liven up my photo and they both work together really well. Then I decided to try using Prima's Donna Downey 12x12 Art Stencil.
CONFESSION: This is my first attempt as using any type of Art Stencil or Mask. I dug out my old colored ink pads (Tim Holtz distress stains would work perfectly!) and gave it a whirl! I actually loved how it came out!
Once my attempt at masking was complete, I layered papers, stickers and chipboard. At the end, I added some machine stitching, a Flair button and Studio Calico Wood Veneers for detail.
Thank you for looking.
PS: I must confess that I did not work on this project alone:o)
