So I'm sharing a layout with you today for Scrapbook Challenges. This was a bit of a challenge for me...not because of the sketch, but because of the photos. The photos are a memory I wanted to scrap, but weren't overly colorful or exciting. Our son was always a bad sleeper, but when we moved him to his toddler bed he slept so much better. He loved laying in it "reading" (bottom photo) and even tried to make the bed everyday (top photo). See why I wanted to scrap them!?
To jazz the page up I used some modeling paste mixed with Tim Holtz distress paint through one of his stencils. The paper layers are all from a DCWV stack. I really like the stack, but don't like that their papers don't have any matching embellishments. To rectify this I used some star dies and matching paper. Using some various size pop dots they look really cool.
The tags at the top, along with the circle at the side are from the Scraptastic subscribers print and cuts. This is the first time I've used that feature on my Silhouette and it was rather fun.
So what do you think of my creative embellishments?
