Memories Layout with Leah

Happy May Day Clear Scraps friends!

My daughter graduates High School in just over a month, and I have been knee deep in baby photos and reliving all the memories of raising my baby girl.

Today I will be sharing a layout I created and a small technique I used
to decorate the title.

I love interactive components on my layouts and albums, so I created a fun little hidden treasure that can be found by lifting up the bottom corner of the photo.

To decorate the Expressions Memories title I peeled off the protective film from the front and used a sharpie to define the edges of the title.

I then turned it over, removed the protective film, and dabbed Purple Twilight alcohol ink on the backside of the title.

The color change on the title was a happy accident, because originally I thought the Twilight purple alcohol ink was a little darker than I imagined paired with my pattern paper. I turned over the title and spritzed a little bit of irresistible texture spray in white and let it dry. As it dried it lightened up the color! And there you  have it, a happy mistake!

I hope your May day is fantastic!
