C-47 Bombshell Layout

My family loves planes. Like, really loves planes. Me? I think they’re cool…but I really know nothing about them. I’m more of a car chick. We have a small airport by us that has an Air Show every year for Labor Day. Obviously, the special planes they show during that holiday weekend need to fly in earlier, so we decided to visit said airport for a look see.

We drove in at the perfect moment! Just as we got there, a huge C-47 was landing just across the way from us. It was big, and majestic. And this, coming from a car chick, is a big deal! We were able to get up close and personal with the plane (which happened to transport paratroopers back in it’s day), and Gene and Nix actually got to look inside of the bird!

On it’s side, as most planes have, was some awesome artwork…which is what inspired this layout!

C-47-1

Take a look at that beautiful bombshell! And of course, I colored in the Bombshell Stamps’ Angel to coordinate.

C-47-2

My photo looks a bit more faded then how it is in real life, but you get the idea! You can see Nix and my husband standing next to the plane right by my colored in Bombshell’s knees. You can click on any photo to see it bigger.

C-47-3 

I love how this layout turned out. It didn’t need too much. The colors are perfect, the patterns are subtle, and I think I have just enough embellishments to keep it interesting without going overboard.

I also love using  Bombshells on my layouts! They really add so much to a page! And since you can color them however you want, it never really seems repetitive. You’ll see another Bombshell scrapbook page from me real soon! Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
