Birds of a Feather

Once the weather gets warm I find myself totally forgetting to blog.  Or maybe because our warm months are so darn short I am spending as much time as possible enjoying it.  Either way, I need to make a habit of taking time in the evening to sit down and share.

This layout was so much fun because I totally created the background paper.  I took a very light blue piece of cardstock and some white Gesso and with a stipple brush, and created some clouds.  
I then took 2 colours of Distress Oxide Ink from Ranger, Broken China, and Mermaid Lagoon, and using their round sponge brush I filled in most of the background. leaving the clouds to peek through.  The last step was to sprinkle a little bit of water.  I was so happy with how it turned out!!!

To add a bit of colour I added some patterned paper to the left side.

I have been eyeing this Paige Taylor Evans cut file from Silhouette for a few months.  But I just wasn't sure how I would use it.  But after going through my photos and picking the photo that I used, and coming up with a title, I knew these birds would be perfect.  I just cut the cut file apart and picked a few of the birds.  I then backed them with bright coloured paper.

Another thing I have started doing when I create is to use at least 2 older things from my stash.
It is getting way too huge and I really need to buy less and use older stuff. 

So on this layout, I used some doilies from my stash and some brads.  Who doesn't have a ton of brads they have never used!!!

Everything else was pretty straightforward.  It is such a bright fun layout and the photo taken by 
Kelsie Kelly Photograper is such a beautiful photo of my 2 oldest granddaughters
Taylor and Blake. 

The Collection that was used for this layout is Illustrated Faith by Bella Blvd.

Thanks so much for dropping by!!!  ~Cathryn
