I did manage to get this layout done with my two youngest girls reading together a few years ago. I started off with some white cardstock layered over a black and white patterned paper, and I used Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks to do an ink smooshing technique.
I pulled out the Lori Whitlock Petticoats and Pinstripes collection from Echo Park to use on this layout. I love the colours and the coordinating stickers in the pack! I loved the way my friend was creating a layout and using foam dots to pop up some of her photos, so I tried it with my center photo and I loved it. Another great reason to get together and scrap with friends... you never know when you'll see an idea that you can't believe you never tried before!
I used embroidery floss to add some cross stitching to the corner of my layout by first pre-punching the holes with a paper piercing tool. Some enamel dots and SpiegelMom Scraps cork confetti heart and sequins add embellishment layered over the paper and stickers.
I used one of the sketches from the Ready, Sketch, Go class for my layout and layered my papers and photos down according to the sketch before embellishing with lots of fun goodies! The sticker letters were included in the paper pack, which was perfect!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow for some exciting news!! ;)
