'Today is Perfect'

For this boy layout, I glued cardboard strips to do my background. I applied a coat of
white gesso on the strips with an old credit card to blend them together. I glued tape joint
 on it to add texture. Then I applied blue, turquoise and brown inks.

I applied modeling paste with two different stencils. I stamped in black and glued
glass glitter and micro beads to add more texture.

I painted all my chipboards with white gesso and added ink on them
 to make them match with my background.

'A Glimpse of You'

For this girly layout, I did a background with modeling paste and doilies. I added purple
and pink inks to it and stamped with black ink to add contrast.

I painted all my chipboards with white gesso and added a little bit of pink and purple ink to it.

I embossed my title with WOW! Iridium Embossing Glitter. I love these glitters!

Both layouts are Stunning! I also love the crispness of blue and white on your boy layout. You have a wonderful way of balancing a page. Your girl page is so sweet -the embossing powder on the title looks amazing!
