Woo hoo it’s the weekend! I love my weekends and my garden is coming along great now. I just went outside and picked a salad for tonight. Yummy! I whipped up this layout after work yesterday with my June Swirlydoos kit and sketch, and I used this weeks colors from The Color Room. Sometimes a layout just comes together perfectly and so fast, and this was one of them. Mind you I had altered the Dusty Attic frame the night before, but besides that I think it only took me a little over an hour to make. I love this little photo of a friend’s son and thought it was perfect for this layout.
I did lots of distressing on the bottom layers and here you can see the masking that I did under the DA frame. I used moon shadow mists, inks and gesso on the masking. This is only half of the DA frame, I first painted it, than I used some distress stains and inks, micas and crackle accents on it. I then fancied it up with some leaf ribbon and flowers. Pssst don’t loot at the off center masking up top J Hey when there is boo boos embellish more right J
Close up of the flower cluster, I tucked in some hairy ribbon stuff (hehe, I do not know what it is called, it is like wool?) and I tusked in some fabric leaves from Prima.
Just a few more side shots of the masking with gesso and the layers.
Well that is it for today. That was such a fun layout to make. Any layout with masking is always so much fun. Did I mention that I was asked to be on another team..he he.. FUN! I am not sure when I can tell though, maybe this week I can spill on it. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
