What can I say...I'm a 12x12 kinda gal.
When things are not going right or I'm feeling like I need some crafty time...I reach for 12x12.
I think we all have our own comfort zones and that is mine.
So imagine how ecstatic I was when Kim started carrying different 12x12 papers in the store! We have Authentique and Fancypants and 7Dots and Tim Hotlz...
and I really could go on but you want to see some GORGEOUS crafty goodies don't you;)
If you have seen my work you know that I am over the top...lots of mixed media...more flowers than a gal can handle. But when I saw the Fancypants Nautical line, I was so inspired to do something clean and simple. I purchased some 12x12 in a couple of the patterns and went to town!! They were so much fun to create with!
I also used my new Tim Holtz Honeycomb die to create some layers behind the photo grouping. The tag is from the clearance section and is Fancypants as well but from a different line. I just adore the Junkyard Findings Street Signs and this one was perfect...because he is my 1st born!! Get it?
*slaps her knee*
I liked the orange with the navy blue and teal (yes that is blue not black) so I grabbed a piece of orange paper from my stash to make my accents.
I decided to stamp a tiny date stamp to document the time that this photo was taken. We don't have many every day type photos and this was just a spur of the moment "kids...get in the car...mamma wants pics" kinda deal.
So needless to say my teenager was glad I was inspired to NOT use flowers this time.
This LO was the inspiration for the one above:
Hard to believe this is the same child isn't it? Thus the title for the previous LO of "All Growed Up"
and some Prima masking...a little bling...some stamping...this was seriously a fun layout to create.
Here is a close up of the tissue tape and stamping.
And of course the BLING!!!! Oh so yummy!! And just adorable with the Prima Metal Door Sign.
