Are you a morning person? :)


Good morning

I'm a totally morning person. I love to wake up bright and early and get a ton of things done. When night falls, I get sleepy. *LOL* Are you a morning person?

Today's layout features my three nephews enjoying some morning sunlight in the garden.


The background cardstock was gessoed, inked with distress inks and then spritzed with water...so there are subtle blue streaks on the background. A little masking, stamping and handstitching. And blooms!


Some distressing on the edges. I added some Gimmer Glam for a little sparkle.

Prima papers. Tags. SRM stickers. Rub-ons. Distress inks. Gesso. Paper flowers. Stamp. Old book paper. Fabric strips. Heidi Swapp mask. Inspired by the sketch at Get Picky and the floral challenge at {Create} Make it happen.

P/s: I would love for you to play along with my guest Donna's dimensional challenge! :)

*Edited* I won the April challenge at {Create} Make it happen! :)

Nicole Maki said...

I love how you combined an abundance of details, embellishments and effects while still leaving the appearance of refreshing white space.

Brilliantly done.

Thanks so much for popping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment about my mixed-media piece.

Warmly,
Nicole

Great layout. Love it!

Alice Wertz said...

love that you used so many flowers on a boy layout! so cool!

Julie E said...

PERFECT!!! Just love the photos nestled in all that paper goodness. Am I a morning person? Depends - if no one else is up, then yes ;>) I usually only find time to craft at night though, so I need to balance it all!
