The first layout that I am sharing with you is made from my September "Sweet Citrus" kit,
my paper forgery-you can see a glimpse of it here:
(that I never got around to sharing):
For my paper forgery, I took a soft pink chevron paper from Dear Lizzy, and colored it with an orange Gelato, with I brushed with a bit of water. When it came time to add my photo and embellishments, the orange looked too harsh against the soft pink, so I painted over most of the background with a soft white wash of paint, before adding the photo, journaling, and embellishments, and love the soft look that it gave to the page.
The Second layout that I am sharing with you today is a page made up from my April "Fantastic&Fabulous" kit:
The Dear Elsie paper seemed to go perfectly with the "selfie", and girly feel of the page:
And...I am super happy to get some of that OLD stash used up!!
