I cannot believe that it is already the 8th of February and this is my first layout I have done this month, I know right embarassing. It has been a rough couple of days with a death of a close family friend, my mom is leaving a week earlier than planned so I have upped my daily activities that I am doing so that I am up to doing everything without any pain meds. I am happy to announce that today I was able to complete three layouts, fold (and put away) three loads of laundry, make dinner, gather garbage, do dishes (twice) and I have not needed to take any meds [insert happy dance].
Anyways back to my layout. This month at White with 1 it is with grape. Now purple is one of my most favorite colours in the world as it is just such a happy colour!!!! But unfortunately since I don't like having my photo taken and my child is a boy, I don't often get to work with purple so I was super excited and as soon as I saw which colour was this month's challenge I knew which picture I wanted to scrap.
This flower photo was actually taken last summer when I took my son to a playgroup outing at the local greenhouse for a tour. He had so much fun and I was in awe of all the beautiful flowers and took lots of photos (I am one of those people who always takes too many photos), I probably took 100 pictures that morning (we were there for about an hour).
Anyways back to my layout:
first off sorry for the glare, it is dark all the time and I can't seem to take a good picture of a layout today :(
To create the layout, I started with a 12x12 crafter's workshop stencil and using Ranger Emboss It dabber in clear, I went over the stencil. I then used Stampendous embossing powder and set it with my heat gun. I then used We R Memory keepers Twist trimmer to trim it and then glued it to the background paper. I then layered different papers and used home-made modeling paste over Tim Holtz layering stencil. Then bordered the photo and glued it on top. The flowers are bulk from my local scrapbook shop (Scrapbook Lounge in Cold Lake, AB) which I trimmed and flattened out and glued down. I sprayed DIYthickers with grape fizz and pop rocks and then put the title together. I am quite happy with the way this turned out and brought the beauty that I was trying to convey the day we went to the greenhouse :)
