Making Gifts for Life

Sunday, April 14, 2013



Hi everyone!

How are you doing this weekend?
Don't you love Sundays?
I do! 
I get to create and this time of year, have the house pretty much to myself.
The hubby is working on the yard, and the kids are with friends.
It's blissful.

For this layout, I stamped the background paper with black ink and a variety of different stamps. The stamps I used are dollar bin stamps from Michael's and Inkadinkado stamps.

Then I took some black acrylic paint from Making Memories and added water to it. I took a cheap paint brush and splattered the paper lightly with the paint.

While that was drying I the various papers in to the lengths and widths I needed. These are all papers from my scrap bin, it's a tad overflowing now, so I either have to use them or burn them, and that seems like such a waste.
The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye (I know, big surprise there), Basic Grey and DCWV.

The embellies are from Making Memories, Spare Parts and SEI.

I love this layout. 

The picture is of my beautiful daughter, she took this one herself with her phone that is why it is grainy and not great quality, but I think that adds to this layout.
Sometimes the picture is perfect but it's still something that should be scrapped. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Have a wonderful day!
