  • I started going through older photos of my family and stumbled upon one of my aunt/godmother Monique, when she was a child… I scanned and printed it with the old border, which I cut along to keep the vintage look of the picture.

  • I love to play with colors on my layouts. That’s why I chose this colorful patterned paper from Basic Grey ! As my layout is sized 8x8’, I had huge left-overs of this paper, so I could use the other side, which is more pink, for this girl picture. I also added a bit of another Basic Grey paper from a different line.

  • Once all my papers and the picture were glued to the background, I stitched circles on and around the picture for the focus.

  • I love details and textures on my pages. I played with acrylic paint in yellow and pink, with a pen cap and a brush, all along the stitched circles.

  • I cut some characters from another paper in the same Basic Grey line and stuck them almost all in one place with stickers to embellish the layout.

Thanks so much for taking a peek! Hope I was inspiring.  Take care and until next time!!!
