Girls Only -- Scrapbook Expo Layout
Quite a few years ago (maybe 2008 or 2009???), I started an album for my "girls outings" layouts. As of now, there are only 3 layouts in this book (including the one I am sharing)--ha ha ha. I really have lots to catch up on!
I like the spatter look (is spatter only for blood--I've watched too much Dexter, I think). I used all the mists I have on the page--which isn't much. Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Primerose and Teal, my DIY Gold, and a white paint pen--I don't remember the brand and the label has come off.
I started off by only using the paint on the first half with the photos of me and the girls, but the layout wasn't too cohesive. So I opted to do the same on the other side. I had a lot more photos I wanted to add--the goodies that the girls and the crop gave me--but there just wasn't enough room.
The thing about using the spatter/splatter look is the drying time. It took me over a day to do this layout because I would come back and forth to allow it to dry. Also, I think it took so long because I am not too keen on the base color I decided to use, but I didn't want to start all over again.
The current trending looks on layouts is awesome and I tried to mimic them, but it leaves little room for too many photos :(
Added bonus, I finally use my typewriter on a layout. WooHoo!!! With my new table, my typewriter fits perfectly under my desk and I have plenty of space to open it without having to remove the typewriter from the case.
Thank you for looking :)
