So I made this layout with some reservations.
First of all I'm not a 'watercolor' kind of gal but I wanted to participate in Amy Tan's challenge last week at Studio Calico. She made this cool cover of an embossed journal with watercolors. After watching the video I thought 'I can do that'.
Then I discovered this background paper by Sassafras when I opened my Boardwalk kit from July and thought, well, gee that looks like the perfect paper for this challenge.
Then I pulled out that picture of M with the face that he gets when something irritates him and thought- I could tell a story with that photo!
And that's how this layout came to be. Seriously.
It's pretty simple. I used a combo of washi tape, and paper pieces to anchor the title. A little watercolor action and a few brads, chipboard pieces and bits and pieces from my stash. It's simple but with a little layering of embellishments here and there.
I like to think I deserve a pat on the back for stepping out of my comfort zone on this one.
