More on that later. Today I am sharing a layout made for a challenge over on the Lasting Memories blog.
Hot drinks and stencilling.
The photo I scrapped is from March 2011 and was from my sons' (they are twins so the son's is plural - no idea the correct grammatical form for that one!) birthday 'party'.
You can just about see them all clutching a hot chocolate (in polystyrene cups - yak).
I used a fab Heidi Swapp stencil for the green hearts, stars and circles on the background (only it was a bit damp so the shapes have gone 'splodgy' - *which I quite like anyway*). Because the photos are so old I couldn't journal about the day - but it was interesting to look back and see how things have changed in the years since.
I felt the layout lacked a little 'zing' so I got busy with faux enamel dots (Nuvo crystal drops).
Top Tip - don't put them on the edge of a paper layer - it doesn't make a smooth circle.
I adapted a quirky kit sketch for what will probably be my last layout I manage this week. Although I do have a guest designer spot to do so perhaps not ...
