Hello Sunshine

Happy Wednesday. Today I’m up on the Ink Road Stamps blog as I start my new term with the company! Head over there and give me some love. 🙂

The layout I’m sharing was inspired by a piece of paper from Pink Paislee (Paige Evans) Horizon collection (03). I choose my ink colors from Catherine Pooler inks to match this paper. Because I didn’t want to waste this paper, I trimmed out the middle and left a 1″ border to border my layout.

Next, I applied clear gesso to a piece of white card stock. I did this because I knew I wanted to add some color medium to the page. I added Catherine Pooler Inks (colors listed in product list below) by ink smooshing them to the page.

I cut the Polaroid Banner frame from another piece of white card stock. I designed this file so you could add a backing pattern to the Polaroid frame and add your picture in center opening.

For my pattern paper, I used the inners of the frame to create my own pattern paper using Ink Road Stamps, stamps in Between the Lines and Full Circle.

Next, I added foam to the back of the frames to give them elevation from the page. I then added my photos to the openings. My photos will sit flush to the page, as the frames will be dimensional.

Then I stamped Ink Road Stamps, stamps in Bella Flora and Frond of You onto the Judikins Embossible Window Plastic with Versafine Ink and Brutus Monroe Icicle Embossing Powder. I really wanted to be able to see the color smooshing and not take away from the colors, but to add elements around the frames.

And here is my final layout!

Thank you for joining me today.
