I started with a white cardstock background and added a splash of color using the packaging technique with the yellow No Yoking Coloringz that was included in the April 2016 Color Kit.
I then layered one of the Pink Paislee Take Me Away Collection pattern papers, included in the Main Kit, in the center of the white cardstock. I added my photos and created a journaling card using the Echo Park Silver Foiled Dot pattern paper and another of the Pink Paislee-Take Me Away pattern papers. I added my journaling using my WRMK Typecast Typewriter.
These photos were taken on Aidan’s 4th birthday and he was making all of these silly, crazy faces that just captured him perfectly at this age! I typically don’t scrapbook this many photos on a single layout, but I couldn’t choose just one or two to use. These are the faces that I would get each and every time I asked Aidan to smile for a picture. I love how these photos are just SO him! Melts my heart in a matter of just a few seconds!
I also die cut a few faux stitched circles from another of the Take Me Away pattern papers. I added hand stitching around each of the circles using white embroidery floss. I added my title, from the Amy Tan Thickers included in the Main Kit, to the largest circle. I wanted the title to pop off the page so I used the yellow Prima Oil Pastel from the August 2016 Color Kit. I just colored directly onto the words and used my finger to smudge the color. For final touches I added a few Carta Bella black enamel dots from the Embellishment Kit and a few more of the asterisks from the Amy Tan Thicker pack that are colored with the same Prima Oil Pastel.
I’ve put together a video showing how this layout came together!
