In The Beginning

Hello all! I have a new layout to share, and it comes with an announcement! First up, here is the sketch that I was inspired by:

Here's what I came up with:

These are ultrasound images from October. We will be welcoming Baby #5 in May! This is part of the reason my blog was extra quiet and the weekly photography challenge fell by the wayside this fall. I was SO TIRED! Fall is also the busy season for family photography, so I was focusing on getting photos taken and edited and everything else didn't happen. 

Anyway, about the layout. I used Bella Blvd. papers. I decided I wanted some interest on my cardstock background, so I brushed some gesso on and then smooshed some red ink and splattered some green ink over that. I used embellishments from lots of sources to finish it off.

Cardstock- My Mind's Eye
Patterned paper, enamel dots- Bella Blvd.
Stickers- Bella Blvd., Basic Grey, Elle's Studio, Fiskars
Gesso- Liquitex
Buttons, Inks- October Afternoon
Paper Clip- American Crafts
Pen- Sharpie
Brad- Making Memories
Die Cutter- Provo Craft
Software- Craft Edge
Font- Alako Bold
