I had been struggling with a layout for these photos of my son for quite some time. Then I saw the Blossom paper pack and knew it was the perfect paper. I found a sketch that was the base of my inspiration but ended up changing it quite a bit in the end. Over all I am pleased the way this layout turned out and I love the Stamp “Smiles Begin with You” and it was so fitting for this layout.
For this layout fussy cut all the butterflies from the “Your Own Kind of Wonderful” and the tag is from Artbooking page 39. To create the tone on tone look for the butterflies I stamped the base color in second generation ink and then the full color for the top layer.
Here is the full list of supplies:
- Blossom Paper Pack X7196B
