I used a variety of papers for this page. The lovely green behind the photo is by Maja Designs, sent to me by my beautiful friend Eila Sandberg. The other green papers are by BasicGrey, from a variety of collections, and the stripe is by Webster's Pages.
Because of the waterfall, I wanted to make the chipboard look as if they'd been splashed. I first coated them with gesso. Then I dabbed green stamp ink on them. Next I spritzed them with three colors of mist--two greens and a brown. Finally, I sprinkled clear embossing powder and used a heat gun to give them the wet look I was going for. The leaves I used are Twiggy Branch, and are just perfect for cutting apart and layering, so that this one piece can be used on multiple layouts.
For the title (Loving These Moments), I covered up the "Loving" part before applying the green stamp ink and mist. Then, I covered "These Moments" and applied Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder, which gave that word a lovely, soft shimmer. The gorgeous scrolled element tucked behind the photo is a piece cut off of the Parisian Border. This piece is just exquisite, and I love that it has five decorative parts, so that border will go far!
For the cluster at the top of my page, I used the beautiful Bella Flourish, a perfect little shelf for the word to sit on. "Treasure" came from ATC Words 1, a pack that has 11 sweet little words, plus a couple of stars.
And my page. This is Ed when he was a young boy. "Ed's Big Jump" was written on the back of the picture, so that's what I went with for the title.
I love that 2Crafty has chipboard to suit all different styles, and I found some perfect pieces to adorn this boyish, sporty layout.
I used acrylic paint on the chipboard to match the colors in the palette and then outlined in pen to add a touch of detail. I used a crackle stamp over the "Awesome," a part of Word Bubbles, which comes with six different words in different-shaped speech bubbles. The View Master reel is the medium size of 3 elements in the View Finder set.
The Chevron Bits were a perfect accent to lead the eye to the subject of the photo. The Film Strips - Small is a perfect border to tuck behind layers. I cut this in half lengthwise so I could use the other half on a second layout.
