Photo Fun

I'm here today with a layout I did this morning using the Stuck?! Sketches first sketch for September. 

My layout is 8x8 to fit in a hanging display I got from Michael's a few years ago. It's a perfect size layout for the photo booth pictures my boys and I do in the summer (especially with the new way the pictures print), this is a tradition we started the summer after my youngest was born. He was 4 months old in the first one and this one is from 2 summers ago. I'm getting caught up!

I used some scraps of paper to create the back drop, I figured this was a perfect sketch to use them for. Since my strips were bright and colorful, I felt my picture go a little lost, so I layered it with two pieces of vellum. Since this is a smaller layout and the paper was so colorful I didn't want to over crowd the layout with a lot of embellisments.

I thought the gray cardstock background looked a little plain, so I added a little interest to it. I stamped some splatter for a tone on tone look, but didn't think that was enough and added some black Heidi Swapp shine spray. Once the spray was dry I stamped the date in gray and added a little journaling in silver. 

There is a little more journaling on the tag behind the picture mat. Used two different letter stickers to make my title.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
