I love the first part of January in that it offers me the opportunity to feel a fresh start coming on! I am able to reflect on a wonderful holiday with my family. January throws us right back into the swing of our regular routine of our lives, but we feel rejuvenated to get back at it!
If you are like me, you took tons of photos during the month of December. I have mine printed and am working hard to finish off my December album. This week I created a 12×12 layout with one of the photos that stood out in my pile of December pics. I like to use these “highlight” photos on a layout and use the others in my December album.
I started this layout out with some gorgeous holiday themed papers we had come in before the holidays.
I decided to stencil a background on the woodgrain patterned paper. Did you know that you can colour your Modeling paste or Gloss Gel? I sprayed some Teal ColorShine spray into a “blob” of 3D Gloss Gel, and mixed it on my craft sheet. This added dimension to the layout and the gel colour coordinated with my patterned paper.
This is the layout that I came up with. Had to “fussy cut” the birds, but it was worth it 😉
I hope you are all inspired by something wonderful this week!
