This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is Creativity with Texture. In other words - Get Messy!!!
We were challenged to use everyday things to help add texture to our projects.
I cut this background image from the Silhouette online store out of scrap paper and used it as a mask for my background. I used Dylusions ink Cherry Pie. This was my first time using Dylusions ink and I was very impressed!!! The color is very vibrant!!!
Here is what my paper looked after I took the template off. I trimmed the edges a bit and mounted it to a piece of 12x12 black cardstock.
Here you can see the background.
I used the Dylusions ink on some circles I punched from an old paperback book. I folded them in half and used thesm as banner flags.
I also spritzed a piece of cardstock with a grid design on it. This allowed more of the white to show through. I inked the edges with black ink.
I added some color with a black cardstock thick stripe and a blue circle. This grounded my photo and added some depth.
I used the most perfect chipboard piece to point out Tanner's smile!!
I used a font from my computer to cut out my title - Look mom no teeth!
This layout was a little challenging for me as I typically pull colors from my photo. I really did not have any colors to pull here so I went with what I had the most of! The more I look at this layout, the more I like it!!
