Hi there everyone. Hope you all have a great week ahead.
Here are 2 layouts I created with the Home Sweet Home kit from Scraps Of Elegance for July.
This month's kit also included the very pretty Prairie Chic collection from Bo Bunny, which I have included here.
"Oldest & Youngest"
For this layout above, I was inspired by my extremely talented friend Georgia Heald (if you have not found her blog yet go HERE and check out her awesomeness ) in 2 ways. 1) I decided to cut strips of paper to use on my background rather than tearing them as I usually do! 2) I used a crackle effect as my background as I saw on one of her canvases HERE .
Now enter another bit of information I picked up from this video from the very sweet Adrienne Ford HERE . Adrienne showed a way to get the crackle effect in a very quick way. It hasnt turned out the best but its a technique I will try again for sure! I have the very same problem as Adrienne... I have no patience when it comes to waiting for mixed media mediums to dry.. now more than ever since having the baby! I kind of have snippets of time here and there and given that patience is NOT my middle name anyway, I am always on the lookout for ideas that cut time. So thanks Adrienne and Georgia for the inspiration :) Keep it coming :)
Hope you liked my layouts!
