i have a brand spankin' new layout to share today. i created this last week for something, and it didn't work out. which is kind of a bummer for me. but the nice thing, is that i don't have to wait six months to share it with you. lol! silver lining, right ;)
"life is good in a house of girls". i'm sure joe has lots of complaints about living with three girls. in fact, i know he does. lol! but at the same time, i think he secretly loves it.
for whatever reason, i havn't used stamps on my layouts in ages. so i was determined to stamp on this layout. after digging through my stash, i found this restroom dude stamp. i'm sure that's not the actual name of it, but it's a good description, right? lol! i thought it would be a good representation of joe. and the row of house stamp is one that i have been wanting to use for ages. so, i figured i would work it in some way.
i decided to make just one of the houses green, and the others all pink. sort of like one dude house, in a row of girl houses. i don't have a huge selection of ink colors. so i thought i would try using markers on my stamps, which i have never tried before. i did use a small ink pad on for the green house, and then colored all the other houses with a pink marker.
i used my silhouette to cut out my title. once from brown pattern paper. and then once from green cardstock. i wanted just the "good" to be in green, and then offset it just a tad over the brown. i also used some tiny pink letter stickers, from cosmo cricket, for the sub-title.
i think you all know me by now. and that i always add my journaling last. it was a last minute decision to add some yellow onto the layout. once i had printed my journaling onto some yellow cardstock, i used some yellow buttons to add more yellow to the page.
and speaking of the silhouette. that's something that i'm going to be using a lot in the next few days. can't wait to share :)
