Well I finally got some instagram photos printed, so it is time to get them onto some layouts. What I like about a lot of the photos I just printed, is that they are more about capturing the moment and with my daughter there are a lot of them!
I made this page for the Scrap Your Story polaroid challenge. I really like this picture of my daughter reading to Clifford. I pulled the colors from the photo and water colored them onto the background. Then I dug out some old Gouache paint that I have. It's kind of weird paint that I never use. I have been struggling with getting stencils to work how I want them to, but I found out that this paint give a nice little texture and gets me a lot closer to the look I've been trying to get, so I might have to use it more often. My page got a little wrinkly when I sewed it, but hopefully I can still get it to flatten out a bit. I'm going to blame it on this crazy heat wave and being overly pregnant. I like to blame everything on being pregnant right now. =) Oh I hope baby brother pops out soon!
This page is much softer then I normally make, but I really love this kind of look. It's nice to do something a little out of the normal routine. I'll have to make more pages like this in the future.
