Today I wanted to show you the layout that we did for our April crop. This is the result of a mistake--I love it when that happens! You see, the Memories & More cards for Bundle of Love are a Very Vanilla base--but I forgot to order 12x12 Very Vanilla paper (something I rarely use), so I had to get a bit creative. I started out watercolouring the Very Vanilla, but it wasn't dark enough. So then I tried just sponging the ink on--which worked awesome! And this was the result:
Oh, and an added bonus, I scrapbook "backwards" and I create my layout and then add photos, and the first stack of photos I grabbed to see what I could find happened to be from my sister and brother-in-laws wedding a few years back. And look at my brother-in-laws shirt--a perfect match to the Marina Mist I inked the cards with! Couldn't get better than that!
Hope you enjoyed this!
