Hello once again fellow crafters! Kay here presenting one of my latest layouts. In keeping with May's theme of celebrating Mother's Day I decided to scrap this photo of me & my son taken when he was just 2 days old. This photo was taken at the hospital and I had absolutely no makeup and hadn't even combed my hair! Let's just say I'm very grateful for having the capability of turning any color photo into a black & white one! Thank you Photoshop!
With or without me looking my best--this photo holds a very special place in my heart because it was one of the very first times that I was able to hold my son!
I gave texture to the acrylic heart by applying alcohol inks along the edge. I used a combination of purple, blue & a little bit of yellow alcohol inks. Then with a small paint brush I spread a bit of clear dry adhesive along the border & applied Diamond Dust to the adhesive while still wet. This was the end result. These two steps ensured that my large acrylic heart stood out on my layout which is what I wanted.
I used stamps on this page as well...although I did not stamp them directly onto my page. I stamped the images onto a transparency with permanent ink (StazOn), cut them out & adhered them where I wanted the stamped images with a clear dry adhesive.
In keeping with the transparent nature of this layout, I've printed this quote onto a transparency, cut out the sentences and adhered it to the acrylic base with clear dry adhesive.
