I finally managed to complete this layout, based on Got sketch Nr 146. It just would not work. I found it quite challenging to use such a BIG photo but now I actually like it a lot.
Here is the sketch I used: http://gotsketch.blogspot.co.at/2012/06/sketch-146.html
I took the colors from the blanket and used them on the layout. Otherwise, I kept it fairly simple not to take away the focus from the photo.
Here is a close up of the right side:
I created the light blue backing for the "6"by using molding paste and a screen, then I cut it out. I layered quite a few pieces of paper, ribbon and lace for added interest.
I also made a center step card. You can find the tutorial to this technique HERE.
I used the Prima Londonarry 6x6 for ir. The little heart is also from Prima.
My DS is practicing to crawl every day. He is a very mobile kid for his age.
And DD is busy with vacation activities.
Off to go to the pool to practice swimming with DD!
Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
