Happy Monday to you! I'm back to share my latest project with the fabulous August "Barn Door" kit, add on, and stamp add on. You already know how much I'm loving this kit full of neutral goodness, so let's jump right in! I decided to scrap these photos of my daughter and my nephew blowing bubbles. My nephew was having a hard time figuring everything out, so Jordan volunteered to help him. I hid and snapped these photos so they wouldn't look away from what they were doing. It was too cute to see the intense level of concentration on their faces.
I used three strips of paper that I cut into banner shapes for the background. The whole page design was formed around that choice. I wanted to be able to showcase a few of the different patterned papers without the layout becoming too busy.
I chose to put the title on solid grey paper so I could use one of the stamps from the stamp add on to create an interesting border. I also layered several scalloped borders that I punched from my scraps, and I placed a journaling spot just above them. I added a chipboard butterfly that I popped up with foam tape. The center of the butterfly's body is black and white twine from the kit.
I cut several hearts out of the heart patterned paper and adhered them to my page. I added rub on stars near or on top of the hearts, and I topped them with bling. I decided that the hearts still looked too plain, so I added the liquid pearls that came as the additional goody this month. I love the extra bit of shimmer and definition it adds.
That's it for me. I'll see you all again next Monday!
