The JBS Mercantile Gallery was updated last night with 20 new projects! Today I'm sharing my three new layouts. First up is "Beautiful." I have to say, I really like this one. This was made with the Antiquarian Kit (sold out), Artisan (sold out), and a tiny bit from the mini album kit (sold out).
The title, Beautiful, was cut with Silhouette. I sprayed a small about of white mist on it followed by gray metallic mist for a touch of sparkle.
This is Ava when we went to the Princess Tea Party at Disney World. When we got back to the room she let me take her pictures out on the balcony. The journaling talks about how she's beautiful on the outside and inside and what a loving and kind girl she is. She's such a blessing. I think it everyday.
This layout was made with Antiquarian and the mini album kit. There was the coolest butterfly broom label (real vintage) in the Antiquarian add on (which is all old stuff if you didn't know). I didn't want to cut up my original so I made three color copies on my home printer. I cut them out and scattered them to fly over my page. I used some doilies from the mini album kit as well as some from my stash to make a soft background for my picture. You can see the exclusive ornate label stamp from the main kit used here (Main Kit still available).
A shot so you can see the texture of the doilies and how the butterflies are barely popping off the page.
Doris thinks this is the coolest picture. I guess it is. I can't really feel that way since I'm the subject, lol. This was taken about two years ago (in my skinny phase). We were sitting outside and I was taking pics of the clouds with my iphone and showing Adam and he took a picture of me while I was trying to show him. I didn't think much about it at first but this really is a big part of me - I am always taking pictures - like most of you who read this blog - I guess we're kinda obsessed with taking pictures.
Finally, this layout was made using the stencil from Artisan and the patterned paper from the mini album kit. I sprayed the stencil then turned it over and pressed it onto my paper. My paper was Epson 12 x 12 scrapbook paper, which is similar to presentation paper. The ink had beaded on the stencil and when I put it onto the Epson paper, it held that blotchy design well. I'm not sure exactly how to describe that, but it just has a result I like with the mist and stencil.
Thanks for stopping in today and check out the gallery updates if you can!
