Kinder Musik

This is the first traditional scrapbooking layout I have done in a good few months.  We are through the worst of our move to Hervey Bay and a period of stabilisation and settling in is still ahead of us.  I am gradually sorting out my craft room and opportunities await but details have not been finalised so I cannot share as yet. 

To try and "get back in the groove" I had put the washi tape around the borders and printed out three photos and cropped them - and there I got stuck! The placement of things has always been my biggest issue and so it remains, especially as I am out of practise. 

Once I saw the sketch, things gradually fell into place with the acquisition of a few new supplies and so this layout was created!

After struggling for sometime, I really like it now.  The main technique was to "spray" paint onto the page with a mini mister, and create a faux Flair badge using a stamp, punching a circle with my circle punch, and covering it with Glossy Accents.  A bit more detail, without the bulkiness.

  1. I'd say you've certainly found your groove. It's a fabulous layout and I. Loving that Washi tape border

  2. So many lovely details. I like the little pieces of washi all round the edge. A great way to use lots of them at once, although I only have 3 rolls!
