It’s Lisa on the blog today.
I’m sharing this layout with you.
This layout is about me, my sister and my brother! I absolutely wanted to use those super cute acetate numbers… it took me quite some time to figure out how I could use more than just one or two… but finally, I had an idea! I calculated approximately how many hours the three of us “knew” each other… or in other words, how many hours my brother was already in this world with us 😉
So to start this page, I put a bit of gesso in the middle, with a palette knife, then did a bit of mixed media with some sprays!
I used the Freckled Fawn washi strips to put over and under the picture and topped them with the numbers.
I matted the photo on a few pieces of patterned paper and stuck it between the numbers!
Here, I was finally able to use that gorgeous flower wood veneer we had in the may kit! I cut it in half and embossed it in gold, then put the two pieces on both sides of the photo.
Almost done! But the best part… I used my new We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy machine for the first time!!! Yay! I stitched over the numbers and around the page with gold thread… love it! 😉
To finish the layout, I used some Freckled Fawn embellishments! The cute enamel hearts, the chipboard words, the acrylic speech bubble and the puffy alphas!
