Life’s Memories Mixed Media Layout

I love the colours from the mood board this month. I had the pleasure of having a good friend Andy Skinner come to visit this last summer. He had a fun time sitting by the pond, enjoying the beautiful weather and company. And these two crazies are like Peas in a Pod so you can imagine the fun that was had.

Life's Memories Creative Embellishments

Here is the inspirational photo.I love the beautiful hues of read, That helped me pick out the paper to go with it. The twist is to add lace, I almost forgot about the twist by the end of the creation of this so I did fit a little lace tape in on some of the layers. (It happens when you get involved with the creative process and forget there is a goal at the end.)


Here are some close ups.


On to the page, I get so wrapped up in the background of things, sometimes I end up covering it all up. But this page did start out like normal, lots of stamping and texture with distress checkered stamp, circle stamp and brick stencil.


After most of the background I end up suing some embossing on the  Travel Corner, seeing it was a bit of a trip for all of us this fall. I filled in some of the layers with some washi tape that was heat embossed.

But like usual, I made a video fo the creative process for you all.

A few more close-ups.




Thank you for stopping by today, Enjoy and I hope this inspires you to join the challenge.
