Good morning, Kelly here!
This month I want to share with you two soft, pastel colored pages. I usually reach for the bright colors but these two are a bit more subdued, and I like it!
First, let me introduce you to the newest addition to my family, Oliver John. He arrived on July 7th and was just 5 days old in this photo - my first layout with him on it :)
The Blue Fern Garden papers made the perfect soft background for a baby boy page. For the main paper I used the "Love Letters" paper, and for my layers I cut bits from many of my scraps of the other papers. I kept things pretty simple...lots of white space, and just the right amount of texture thanks to the "Mini Ring Things" chipboard pieces I layered here and there. These pieces were given just a gentle uneven coat of white chalk ink.
I also added one of the pretty "Layering Stems" to complete my cluster. I love this piece!
This next page I used the gorgeous "Charlotte's Dream" paper from the Ombre Dreams collection. I love the pretty floral/lace texture of this paper! My background is a mix of watercolors, Gelatos, and stamping.
To frame my photo and add movement I used the Wild Flourish Frame, which I cut in two and placed above/below the photo. This piece was primed with gesso and then painted using Gelatos and watercolors.
Thank you so very much for having a look at my projects today! See you next month!!
