When I was 15, my family moved from Missouri to Texas. I quickly reconnected with some old friends, one of whom introduced me to scrapbooking. I fell in love immediately and I have been hooked ever since.
Scrapbooking quickly lead to making mini albums, card making, altered canvas, up cycled items, and mixed media.
I kept scrapbooking on and off, but found myself spending less and less time on it as I learned new things.
So yesterday I decided to try my hand at it again after about two years. I picked a photo of myself and my mother from when she and I went to see the Broadway tour of Wicked when it was in Springfield MO earlier this year.
I chose Graphic 45's World's Fair paper for this layout. I wanted something very bright and colorful. I chose to make my photo black and white to help draw the eye in.
I did lots of fussy cutting and distressing for this layout. Lots of pop dots where used! I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Blueprint Sketch, Walnut Stain, and Wild Honey for my background papers. I think it gave them all a nice extra pop of color.
Thanks for stopping by!
