Plotting Their Day

Good morning.  I (Mary-Ann) wanted to share a layout that I create on Veteran's day.  Not only did I take the picture that day, I even scrapped it!  Never have I ever been so efficient!  I am pretty proud of myself.  I wanted to use the repeating circles as my theme throughout this layout.  I love the  photo and wanted it to be get the attention so I decided on pastel, white washed papers from Fancy Pants - Collecting Moments line.  This line could be used in SO many ways.  There is a dark rich blue that is calling my name!  

I started by punching out circles with my 3" circle punch and my Wplus9 Circle Stackers I Die.

Because the colors were a tad bold, I tones them down with spraying them with white linen Dylusions ink and white embossing powder.  

I decided on my photo and circle placement, then began my watercoloring.  I shaved my favorite gelatos colors onto a paper plate and mixed them with water.  Using my layering stencil, I started making my mess.  I may not be a master but it sure was fun!  You will see on the layout that I even colored the wood veneer shapes with the same gelatos liquid. 

I added my title, pieces from the matching embellishment packet, small decorative tags, resin flowers, Jillibean doilies and wood shapes, and added flair!

Thank you for taking a look at my layout.  
Be sure to thank a Veteran, it is never too late.

I love the circle theme on this layout. The altering of the paper both with Dylusions and gelatos worked like a charm and gives the layout a painterly feel which is so cool. I must give the gelato shaving a results. Great photo of your guys!
