Here’s a throwback to summer on this cold blustery January day! My daughter captured this beautiful moment last summer of her daughter. Maddy was singing on the back dock surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of nature in all its glory. I just love the reflection in the water and the colours in this photo. Just looking at this picture takes me right back to that time and special place.
Mixed media is very intimidating to me, so you can imagine how excited I am to have a pre-made mixed media background to work with! The background paper was a perfect fit for this picture, and it came ready made in the beautiful blues and gold. It is from Vicki Boutin’s Ready-to-Use Mixed Media Paper pad. The stars (Puffy Stickers) and gold foil chipboard phrase belong to her StoryTELLER collection. You can find more on Vicki and her products here: vickiboutin.com.
The title, Always Remember This, came from Peartree Cutfiles. I wanted the title to compliment the feel of the picture and the beautiful paper. To achieve this, I backed the open letters with vellum to allow the colours in the background to pop through and to assist in keeping the overall balance of the layout. You can find the cut file here: peartreecutfiles.co.uk/product/always-remember-this/
To complete the layout, a few small enamel dots were added for extra dimension, and the date was applied with teensy type doodlebug design inc. stickers.
I hope this layout has brought you some much needed warmth and memories of warmer days. Spring is only 50 days away, and better weather is on its way. I wish you all good health and Happy Scrapping!
