First Layouts of 2012!


I hope you're having a creative start to 2012! I want to share my first two layouts of this year, both with
Basic Grey collections.

My first layout was created from this
Basic Grey sketch (1.2.12), based on a layout by Shimelle Laine.

This is my version. I added a second picture and tilted them. I dove into my stash and used my "
Phoebe" collection for this layout. I "white-washed" the busy background paper with Gesso thinned with water, so it wouldn't detract too much from the photos (it's hard to tell from the picture). The chipboard hearts and circle (near the title cluster) are from the "Green at Heart" collection. The layout is titled "Miniature Nature" and is about our tiny little yard that I like to embellish with touches of flowers.

My second layout is based on a sketch by
Valerie Salmon, done for a challenge at Scrapbook Centrale. (I just didn't finish it on time!) It's a layout about the "Wild Gardens of Acadia", in Acadia National Park, Maine, which we visited last summer. Everything was so lush and green! This time I used papers from the Basic Grey "Wisteria" collection. The soft purples and subdued colors were perfect for my pictures!

Leave me a link to your first pages of the year! I'd love to visit and leave you some love!

Happy scrapping!
