Hello! It’s Friday evening, and I’m starting to wind down for the night. But, I wanted to share a layout that I made today with all of you.
I had taken this picture of Nix over the Summer. I just love it. He’s so thoughtful and handsome in it. His hair is long and fabulously messy, his little lips look like those of a cherub’s.
I don’t even remember what he was looking at. He’s in our backyard looking at a plane perhaps. Maybe a bird… Or maybe he’s just pondering the wonders of the universe.
I actually printed out the title and little poem I wrote. I haven’t done that in ages. I have some really incredible fonts, but by the time I pick one out, then pick a color, then get the paper in and size it all right… it’s like next year! But this time I was lucky. I found a font that was perfect really quickly, and the blue was actually a stock color!
I added the stud swirls (from Prima) to give the page even more movement then what the fantastic butterflies are already doing. The background paper is from K & Co. the Mariposa stack. It’s just gorgeous right?
I added some Glitz Stickles to the butterflies. They needed a little shine. The little poem I wrote says:
Always look to the sky.
Always reach for the stars.
Always know that you can travel
As far as your imagination will let you.
I used a corner punch from Ek, and pop dotted the picture. I think it’s a pretty beautiful page. The paper and the picture are enough on their own… I just added a couple of little things to finish it off. But really, the work was done for me because my photo and paper were so perfect. So there you have it! Have an inspiring weekend!
