My first project is using their monthly sketch - Em is learning to dive this summer and I had to laugh at these photos!! lol
Here is Liz Qualman's awesome sketch, as you can see, I followed the sketch pretty closely as it worked perfectly with my photos.
Don't those balloons just scream summer party?!?
The title effect was one of those happy accidents.....thank goodness. I started by painting the letters black and then they were too dark, so I sanded them back - then painted them white and they looked kind of grey, so I painted some dots with Shimmerz Pearlz and then they were too spotty, so I painted over all of that with the green Maya mist....whew!! I'm embarrassed to say how long I fiddled with them. lol
Hope you have a great week - I'm trying to get everything done before vacation!!! Woohoo - the beach in just a few days!
****I recently had a question asked about how I store my dimensional layouts from Donna. And I use 3 ring binders - I usually buy the American Crafts ones and I don't pack too many pages into each book to give some breathing room. If anything on the layout sticks off the page - on the side, I cut a slit in the page protector with a craft knife to let it extend. If you have an extremely dimensional area on the surface you could cut an area out of the page protector, too. Thanks for asking! *****
