Three Layouts to Share...
By Kelly Foster

Hi there!!! Kelly here with a little inspiration for you!

First up, a fairly simple page, called "Celebrate Today."
 I am all about capturing, cherishing, and (of course) scrapping those
 every day moments with my two little girls!

I used three wonderful pieces of 2Crafty chipboard on this one..
above you will see I used one of the Polaroid Frames, (sorry no close up!), 
which was simply painted white, then outlined in black pen!

Below you can see the beautiful Corner Flower Vines piece, 
which I primed with gesso, then smudged with Pan Pastels in a navy blue color, 
then topped off with a few tiny pieces of bling for a bit of color.


 I did something here that I never do, I placed a large title right in the
 center of my page! An unusual thing but I think it made a big impact!
 This is the Celebrate Today title, and I applied the same treatment here
 as I did the corner piece. Overlapping it slightly over my photo helped to
 tie the page together and not have it just "floating" there.

 Up next, I really had fun using the Clock Face Frames
to create a neat design for this page..

 Here I also used one of my favorite pieces, Large Leafy Vine..
I painted it with gesso, then misted with a few different colors.
I added touches of Smooch Ink here and there for some vibrant turquoise color
..I added some rhinestones to the ends of the vine for a bit of sparkle!

 Below you can see a close up of one of the Clock Face Frames,
and also one of the Summer Leaf Stems. Same technique as the vines,
 I just globbed on the gesso for texture, then misted them green!

OK, lastly, here is one more. I used up some little bitty bits of leftover
 cut apart chippies on this one!! I often will cut apart a piece of chipboard
 to use on more than one project. 

Below you can see a bit of the Chicken Wire Panel..

And a bit more here..along with the Small Filmstrip, (which is slightly hidden).
The chipboard on this page really added to the texture, I think.

OK, that is all from me today!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, 
I hope you will take the time to follow the blog, 
and also check out our Facebook Page!! 
See you again next month!!

Have a great day!!
