Holly here to hop along with Susan K. Weckesser and share a layout using the beautiful papers from Susan K. Weckesser AND the amazing Sweet Girl - April 2013 Kit from Hydrangea Hippo! The two sources of mixed media goodness worked absolutely perfectly and a quick, easy, and FUN layout came out of me playing!
Susan K. Weckesser's stencil to create little flowers and the brush strokes.
Although I love all of the color that the paper brought to this party, I needed to tone it down a little. So, for my next layer, I double stamped (where you stamp the same stamp twice with out reinking) a film strip where my photo was planned to go and again at the bottom of the layout. I like how this technique adds a shadow feel. I use it pretty much a lot on my mixed media projects.
I didn't really plan nor want to do a lot of journaling on this page. So I didn't. And that's perfectly ok. I did, however, use part of the Susan K. Weckesser stamp set and stamped the word "smile" over my layers to add a little more expression to the page...
