I have been following paper Issues for quite awhile now, and I wanted to play along with some of their fun challenges ! So, I pulled out my March kit and got to work on their two most recent ones: "InstaLove" , and "Up In The Clouds". Now, I may be the last person in the world that doesn't have an Iphone or Droid, so I don't have an Instagram account (soon, I hope). But, my brother does, so I pulled an adorable picture of my nephew from my brother's Instagram to make this layout:
Paper Issues store-AND you can use the code ASHLEY75 to save 20%!). The ribbon and chipboard pieces are from Lucky Charm also, and, since the umbrella in the chipboard pack was a little too girly for my layout, I painted it with a lovely mint green, and I coated the chipboard raindrops with Glossy Accents to really give them a wet look. I sprinkled October Afternoon Sprinklers and Mr. Huey's mist across the layout on a diagonal, and added a few little drops of Glossy Accents across the layout to really carry out the rain effect-and I love how it came out! Isn't my nephew the cutest thing in this raincoat and boots?
Here is a closer look at the "rain":
Now, I am not normally a big fan of cloud paper, but this one is just so gorgeous that I can't get enough of it! I love the aperture/bokeh effect that is applied to it-so, so pretty!
Here is my layout:
Thank you for stopping by today, I made some more layouts with my February and March kits, so I will be back to share more tomorrow!
