I have had a crazy summer. We moved from Houston back to central NY after having lived there for 5 years. When I first moved to Texas, I was very homesick. But over the years, I really got connected, and I was surprised at how sad I was when it was time to go.
While looking through my stash of Glitz goodies, low and behold there was a "Texas" and "New York" die cut in the Happy Travels Whatnots pack. They were perfect for me to use on this layout habit what I have been going through with this move.
I began by cutting out a Texas and New York State shape from the black background paper using my electronic die cutting machine and some svg files from the web. I took a circle stencil and used the map stamp from the "Happy Travels" collection and stamped some maps in black on the black background for some tone on tone.
I splattered some paint and then layered some papers, die cother and stickers. I left a large card for journalng that pulls out from the side of the page.
In contrast to my kinda gloomy page, I have been waiting to do this next page for such an long time. The Happy Travels epoxy stickers and the title stickers both have the phrases "I love you in the morning. I love you in the afternoon. I love you in the evening". Now, being a mom of a 3 year old, I know that those are the lyrics to the song skinamarinky dinky dink, which my daughter and mother happen to love singing to each other!
I stamped around the border of the pagea with a music note stamp from French Kiss collection.
I was thinking of the color of the sun in the morning, afternoon, and evening, so I used some circles with those colors and added phrase stickers to them. I also cut out a Vintage Blue peek-a-booain't I some heart shapes and layered them on the circles, too.
Be sure to stop by the blog on Saturdays to get some great tips and techniques!
