Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

"Adore" Layout

This is a layout I did for a crop challenge on the justbuggin site during our online crop last night. A sketch from pagemaps was posted for us to follow. Here is the sketch:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch. This is a photo that was taken of my wife and our then-2-month-old baby during a family photo shoot. I think it is one of the most gorgeous pictures I've ever seen of my wife and I absolutely LOVE the adoring look she has on her face as she looks at the baby.

This is a closeup of the journaling spot and the flourish I used. I stamped the flourish with Versamark ink and the embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Just a closeup of the title. It's a Making Memories rubon.

A closeup to show the detail of the stamp (by Fancy Pants) and the scoring I did using my Scor-pal.

Supplies used: cardstock - unknown; pattern paper - My Mind's Eye; Stamps - Fancy Pants Designs and Autumn Leaves; Ink - Versamark and Stampabilities; Pen - American Crafts; Rubon - Making Memories; other - Scor-pal.

Thanks for looking!!

J, I really like this layout. I agree that your wife's gaze is priceless and the fact that you captured it in a layout is a tribute.

You really made a good choice with colors...very subdued and quite "vintage" looking... so nice!

Good job, buddy! :)
