My August kit from Swirlydoos arrived yesterday but I will not break into it until I have finished my June and July kit. There are just so many pretty items, which I want to use and not hoard.
On this layout, I used a quite a few techniques, which I would love to share.
This is my sweet DS (7 months) deep asleep in my arms after a long day at the lake. He loved being in the (pretty cold) water and then he was so exhausted. The scenery was so serene - the waves of the lake, the wind blowing and DS asleep in my arms.
The journaling is hidden behind this tag. It was a very "clean and simple" tag from Jillybeen Soup". I distressed the edges, toned down the bright white basis with "antique linen", stamped on it and inked the edges to match the style of the layout.
|Here, you can see the journaling. I love "interactive layouts" where you can lift up items, pull strings etc|
|Here, I cut up the swirl, colored it with copic markers to match the papers. To save money, I only ever buy white swirls anymore and color it accodring to my needs. I learned this trick from Conny. Thanks!!!|
Thanks so much for stopping by!
All the best,
