The Journey Begins - OLW/Scrapping out loud challenges

Supplies: Patterned paper (unknown), Cardstock: Bazzill (Brown), Stickers: EK Success & Toga, Flowers: Prima, Brads: Making memories, Mask: Tim Holtz, Ink: Distress Inks (Marmalade, Vintage photo, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut stain) & Stazon (timber brown), Others: Acrylic base, paper doiley, canvas paper (masking)

I love this photo of my oldest nephew S, carrying his newborn baby brother, J. He was so excited about being a big brother, telling me how he was going to take care of the baby. It is heartening to see how he has grown and evolved in a few short years.

This layout incorporates the challenge at Scrapping out loud which is to follow a grid pattern and also encompasses the word "Journey" from One little word. The title of the layout and the journaling is just a single line - "The journey begins." I didn't want to detract from the poignant photo and the line sums up exactly how I feel.


Some sanding and inking on the photo. A little fun with my new Tim Holtz mask with distress inks over canvas paper - amazing textured effect! I am so in love with Prima flowers! I often wondered why people raved about Prima flowers...now I know...they are so easy to use and add interest and dimension to a page without being too overwhelming. Well, better late than never! Are you a fan of Prima flowers?
