I coated all my chipboard pieces with gesso and decided to leave most of them that way to give my page a soft, aged shabby feel. I used stamp ink to color my small "Butterflies." The bigger butterfly is from "Marianne's Butterflies." Topping them with some pink pearls gave them a lovely shine.
The "Remember" word came from the "Friendship Mini Word Pack." The I stached a "Mini Film Strip" on top of a piece of border I had left from another layout. This border is from the "Mixed Border Strips" set. Because I scrap 8 x 8, I often have leftover chipboard pieces to use on other layouts. I coupled a fabric heart brad with a heart from the "Heart Silhouette" set.
"Love You to the Stars and Back"
These lovely ladies in these fun photos are my best friend's daughter and granddaughter. I thought it would be fun to put them together and make a photo-booth style layout.
The 2Crafty "Film Strips - Medium" were a perfect element for the photo-booth arrangement of the pictures. These Film Strips are just over 7 inches tall, so they were just the right size for my 8 x 8 page. I coated them with white embossing powder.
I've been waiting for an excuse to use the fun elements in the "Space Set." The Saturn piece came from this set. I coated it with gesso and then painted the planet and ring with yellow and aqua watercolors. I added glitter to the ring to give it some shine. I wanted to echo the background paper for my title, so I used the "Love - Loopy Font" and "You - Loopy Font" pieces. The "You" was coated with white embossing powder, and I painted the "Love" with red acrylic paint.
How fun is this rocket from the "Space Set?" I covered it with patterned paper, leaving the engraved windows raw. I added some stars, painted with yellow watercolors, from the "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars."
