Hello! I have a layout that I finished a couple of days ago to share today! I was inspired again by the Big Pictures Classes's "5 Ways to Use Gesso." This time I played a bit with water colors over the top of the gesso. For my layout, I cut up some patterned paper to make a frame around my page. I spread some gesso over the center part of the layout and then went to work with some watercolors borrowed from my kids. I made some subtle circles in a few spots around the page.
I was also inspired by the 5/1/15 Friday Free for All challenge at My Scraps and More. The challenge was to use circles as embellishments, alter die cuts by coloring and scrap a series of photos. The photos on this page are of my older son showing his growth from 7 months to 12 months. The journaling spots were colored using the same watercolors I used for the background.
