Start to Finish #2: Big

Friday night when I sat down to get creative while the hubby was at work, I decided to pull out some photos for a scrapbook layout. I grabbed a few different papers that were laying around my workspace {Fancy Pants, Tim Holtz and Basic Grey} and got creative.

I cut part of the papers down and my starting point was born. I kind of had an idea of where I was going but didn’t know how it was all going to come together in the end.

Since I started with the Tim Holtz Resist paper, I pulled out my Vintage Photo Distress Stain and used it to go over the paper. I thought it was too dull so I then rubbed Fired Brick Distress Ink over the top and rubbed off the excess with a dry wet wipe that was laying around. I adhered that down next to a strip of Fancy Pants polka dots {B side of Christmas Journaling cards} and then two strips from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious Collection.

I used the back side of the green patterned paper from Hello Luscious paper as a mat for my photo. I tucked a tag from my stash under the photo and it was just too bright so I inked the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and went over the top with Antique Linen Distress stain that I went back over with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The title is from American Crafts Sprinkles letter stickers and then journaled with my favorite Journaling pens {Bic Ultra Fine Markers!!!}.

I added in some buttons from my stash and tied them off with various bits of twine. I also added in a ledger journaling spot that I added the basic details of where the photos were taken. The stickers added are from October Afternoon and Glitz Designs.

This is layout #2 of 2012. I am way behind where I normally am for this time of year but I’m okay with that. I do have a TON of ideas in mind of what I want to scrap and they will require getting some photos printed. It’s not about BEING CAUGHT UP, it’s about telling the stories that need to be told!
