These Are Days | Inspiration

Hi Everyone! Christine here today to show you a layout I made to celebrate warmer days and living by the ocean.

My husband and I took a Monday off in February. We were going to see a movie, but when we walked up to buy the tickets, they only had seats in the front row left. We decided to forego the movie and go to the nearby beach instead. What a great decision that was! It was a gorgeous day out. The blue skies and the scenery was so picturesque. These are the type of days I’ll always remember.

 

For this layout, I wanted to evoke the golden sunlight and the blue and green ocean. I painted the background cardstock first using some gold and white pearl Martha Stewart craft paint and a paint brush.  Then I used a gold mist to add a few droplets of gold in a couple of places.

One of my favorite methods of making the photo stand out from the background is to add some vellum behind it. I painted the edge of the vellum paper with the same Martha Stewart gold paint.

I finished it off by stamping the Love This banner stamp onto a circle tag with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. Then I wrote “I remember” with a gold pen.
