June Scrapbook Layout by Lisa

Hey guys,
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 😉

He’s 21 years and 3 months old… But I cheated a bit… I wanted to use that 7, because it’s so cute, with the hearts :), so I changed the last two numbers a bit… who cares when it looks good right?! 🙂

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!
