Hi friends! It’s Mary Ann here today with a new layout to share using a bit of the Graceful Season collection and also the Midday Medley collection. I am so in love with Midday Medley, the colors are so bright and pretty, and so on -trend. With teals, mustard yellows, pinks and salmons, it sounds like the perfect colors for spring and summer photos. But what about old black and white photos? Yep, Midday Medley is perfect for those too!
To start my layout, I cut strips of various pieces of the patterned paper, punching a few with a scalloped edge punch and then adhered the strips to the cardstock. To add a bit more color to the white cardstock, I brushed just a bit of paint on the edges, and splattered a little here and there right on top of the paper strips. I really wanted my photo to stand out, so I added the circle and scalloped edge stickers from the Nestable Festival Sticker Pad directly to my photo, then added the photo to my layout. Next I added journaling that I typed on the computer, and the cute “I love this” arrow.
Since this is an old heritage photo, the “for the record” chipboard seemed like the perfect embellishment piece. I added those cute little clouds just for fun, and a few sequins from my stash.
