Hey my scrappy peeps, today i'm sharing another layout I did with the Vintage Love kit. This kit has been perfect to showcase the photos I took on our European trip earlier this year. If you have some travel photos waiting to be scrapped, I suggest using this kit.
I used one of the "selfies" that dh and I took on our trip. We took one everyday and tried our best to get some type of landmark in the background. This particular one doesn't have a landmark, but was taken while we were riding the city bus in Paris.
I used the main kit plus elements from the flower, mixed media and technique add ons. Aren't those little cork hearts from the main kit adorable. I wanted to stick them all over this page.
I used the molds in the technique kit to make the key, lock and the clock that is tucked into my flower cluster. I love the mod molds that come in the kit. You can get yours here.
I did a bit of masking, I thought the circles went well with the jumbo polka dots in my scarf. LOL! I also added lots of clear gesso, stamping and mists. Then at the end, did some highlighting with pan pastels. I have really been loving the effects I get with them lately.
I added a few things from my stash, like the crochet doily and a few pieces of metal. There were plenty of embellishments in this kit without using my stash, but I just couldn't help my self. You know, stop hoarding and start using. LOL!!
I can't believe I am saying this, but I even added journaling to the back of the tag on the left. The tags in this kit make it easy to incorporate it into the design. That has always been my problem with journaling, figuring out where to put it. Alas no more, with these tags. I can actually document (in writing) about our wonderful trip.
This layout is also based on the Prima BAP. It was a great sketch for the month of September. I really enjoyed working with it.
