I hope everyone's been enjoying some sunshine this week. It's so good for the soul!
Here's my latest page for Scrap Everything! Like last week, I'm using the new Pickled Pear collection from KaiserCraft. I adore this range - it can be used for so many themes and I find the layouts come together quickly when the paper designs and embellishments co-ordinate in such a gorgeous way.
My layout this week is very different from last week's one. Here it is:
This layout came together really easily. I used Dylusions Ink Spray to
make the chocolate ice cream dribbles and the first six words of the
title are from the Pickled Pear sticker sheet. It was these words that gave me the idea for the layout. I wanted the words to be "mounted" on something so I cut a couple of strips of the background paper from behind the photos, flipped them over to show the other side and placed them under some of the title. The only tricky bit on
the whole page was convincing the baker's twine to stay put! A little
bit of Glossy Accents works wonders.
Here's a detail:
My son was only two when these pics were taken. Awww, he was so cute!
This is one of my favourite layouts that I've done lately. I really like the simplicity of the page but it's still interesting and tells a great story. I guess there's a heavy touch of nostalgia too as these photos were taken 13 years ago!
Wishing you all many more ice-creams this summer!
