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.
