Hi crafty friends! It's Jennifer on the blog today with a quick, easy layout to share with you today! I used the @# Chipboard Embellishment Shapes which I thought would go perfect with a photo of my daughter and her best friend! Especially in this age of social media!
For the hashtag, I colored the chipboard with Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans. I found it easiest to apply with a blending brush.
As for the ampersand, I used my new matte chalk polish in rose pink (the lid has a built in applicator). I applied the polish in a circular motion and set it aside to allow to dry.
I used the new 5x9 Circle Dots Mixer Stencil with Distress Oxide in Fossilized Amber to add color to my white cardstock. Again, I used a blending brush to apply.
I adhered both chipboard pieces using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive as it dries quickly and will not warp your products.
Here is a close up of the Mixer Stencil + Distress Oxide! I added in some decorative brads as well as sentiment stickers to accent.
Telling the story is so important! I added some journaling at the side of my photo. I prefer my typewriter but try to use my own handwriting from time to time.
