You hold the key to my heart "Scrapbooking Layout"



 
Happy Wednesday!!!!
 
I thought I would change things up a bit and do a scrapbooking layout. What's unique about my layout is I converted it into a wall hanging by using cork board as a base and hung it my craftroom.
 
I choose pictures with lots of green showcasing nature to compliment the background paper. These are random pictures on different occasions where Michael and I were enjoying a bright sunny day...so refreshing when everything has been white for so long don't you agree?

I created my flowers with random prima flowers I had in my stash and used cotton balls as a base...
  • I took the cotton ball and spread it out in one direction, tore it at the center and made an "X" and placed underneathe flower.
  • I used Spellbinders Scalloped Squares and Rectangles for the picture's of myself and Michael, I used the negative for the stream scene.

  •  
     
  • I used Pearlizing Medium on my flowers and random spots throughout the layout, if it is shiny then it is pearlized!
  • I used my "Big Bite Crop a Dile" punch to make holes through the layout and cork board then simple added string and hung it on my wall. (I love "easy!")


  •  
    I love Michael's half grin in this picture and his Big Nate hair, hehe!!
     
     
    I used tim holtz black distress ink for the title, the title is a wooden stamp I bought for only a buck fifty at Michael'store.
     
    Have a fantastic day!!!!!
