Fun In The Sun

image

The photos I used for this page are of my daughter McKayla at the beach in Fort Myers Beach. In the largest photo McKayla is holding up a seashell she found on the beach.

I loved using mixed media on this page.

I used a gift card to spread blue and gold acrylic paint on a sheet of white 12″ x 12″ cardstock.

After the acrylic paint dried I added modeling paste to the page by using a gift card and spreading the past through a journaling stencil. I chose the stencil because of the wavy lines.

The modeling paste had a some height to it when it dried and I wanted my photos to overlap a little of the modeling paste lines so I added foam to the back of the phote cluster to adjust for the height difference.

I used a scrap of patterned paper and a beach sign stamp to make the tag to the left of the photo.

I used two  beach themed Fiskars stamp sets for this page.  In addition to the beach sign tag I also stamped seagulls, seashells and a part of a sun  onto the page.

I had so much fun working with stamps and mixed media on this layout and I love how the page turned out!

Lucky Lady

Emma was huge hit at the St. Patrick’s Day parade with her gorgeous red hair and fair skin, she got lots of beads and candy.

When Emma was about two and half years old her Aunt Patty took her to the St. Patrick’s Day parade downtown in St. Louis.  I was unable to attend the parade with them, but Patty gave me this picture and told me about how all the people commented on Emma’s beautiful red hair.

Emma is older now and although she has lost those cute curls, she still has that awesome red hair.

Awesome Cheeky Monkey – scrapbook page

No trip to the St. Louis Zoo would be complete with out a picture with the Phil the Gorilla statue.  Below is a scrapbook page using a picture from several years ago of my daughters, Emma and McKayla, standing by Phil the Gorilla’s statue.

I started the layout by choosing a pink and peach triangle pattern paper from Citrus Twist, but ended up changing it out for a floral pattern paper from the Amy Tangerine Stitched paper pad.  I also used a black and white leaf pattern paper and two other yellow pattern papers from the Amy Tangerine Stitched paper pad.  I added a pink, an orange and a green pattern paper from a 6″x 6″ Colorbok paper pad.

I inked all the edges of the papers and added embellishments from my January 2016 Citrus Twist main kit.  I also used a few chipboard stickers by Amy Tangerine and some black enamel dots.

I love how this page came together!

2015 December Daily pages

I previously shared my December Daily album cover and the pages of the album that I made in advance.  There are the finished album pages.

I moved things around on the pre-made pages as needed and added more embellishments once the pictures where placed.

I also added an additional page in the back of the album for extra Christmas Day pictures I wanted to include.

This was my first December Daily album and I’m really happy with how it turned out.  My favorite aspect of the project was how it helped me be more aware and focus on what was happening in our lives. There were a few days I forgot to take a picture or make note of what we were doing so I used pictures from a past Christmas  for one of the days I missed and made a list of my favorite Christmas songs for another.
