March Layouts

March 1st was to have been my first reveal over at Scrap Gal. But sadly, the store has closed. I was so looking forward to working with this great team!

So I can now show you the three layouts I had done for the month, made with products provided by the Scrap Gal Store. March was going to be "All About Mists" at Scrap Gal, so my three projects incorporate mists in one form or another.

The first layout is for my parents' 50th anniversary album. It's a page about their young dating years. The paper is
Basic Grey's Wisteria collection. All the brads (including the butterfly brads) are from the 7 Gypsies Victoria collection. The small green flowers are from Making Memories, and the larger green one is from Prima. They were all originally white, but I misted them with Tim Holtz's Lettuce Color Wash. The purple flower at the bottom was also white, then misted with purple Glimmer Mist. To alter the flowers even more, I then stamped them with brown ink with a "dictionary definition" stamp. I used a brown American Crafts Slick Writer pen to write on the photos. The alpha stickers are from Fancy Pants.

The second layout is also for my parents' album. It's about them being grandparents to their only grandchild, Sophie, my niece. For this layout, I misted the background cardstock with four different colors of
Glimmer Mists, light green, yellow, pink and aqua. I then used papers from the Nook & Pantry collection from Basic Grey to mat all the pictures. The four glazed brads are from the 7 Gypsies Victoria collection. The flowers are from Making Memories (this time I didn't alter them) and the leaf is from Bazzill.

My last page is about my boyfriend, and all that he does for me (the title means "This Man"). It's based on a sketch by
Sketch Support. In this layout, instead of misting, I painted with the the color wash. I painted directly on the grungeboard star and heart, as well as the chipboard stars. The ghost stars were colored with alcohol inks. The papers and journaling tag are from the Basic Grey Origins collection.

That's all I have for today. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
