I've been working a lot on my family's 2008 trip to the World, so have several layouts that I'm really pleased with and want to share!
Sisters in Canada
I had to try out the new Studio Calico 12x12 starburst mask. I used a spray ink by October Afternoon with the mask and to me, anyway, the OA sprays go on a little thicker than Mister Huey's do. I used it on a sheet of vanilla cardstock and the effect was almost like it was printed that way. Super cool!
I was trying to figure out a way to step it up a bit and decided slicing up strips of paper to outline the bursts would be the way to go. I wasn't really sure how it would turn out, but really LOVE the effect! I layered different pieces of OA's Midway behind my photo.
I love the Midway collection by October Afternoon and used a few different embellishments to complete this layout. I pulled out my handy Fiskars scallop punch to make several elements with the patterned paper to layer in with other pieces.
I also pulled in this little flag from Basic Grey's Soleil collection. Love it!
