2 Hooray

There are epic levels of excitement here as it is nearly new kit time!  I'd better get a wriggle on and blog the remaining layouts from June's Like For Ever kit...

This page is a giant shaker pocket!  I used a white cardstock background and began my layering.  The papers and washi strips from the kit, with the number die cuts, completely overwhelmed my photo.  I started playing with an over and under concept - the photo of the second birthday, the number 2, and the balloons being on top of the vellum whilst the layers and other numbers remain under the vellum.

This softened the other colours allowing my photo an focal pieces to shine.

I added a little glossy accents to one of the balloons for extra pizazz!

I sewed round the edge of the vellum, about 5cm before my line of stitches joined up I unthreaded the machine, and carried on sewing.  This gave me the holes I needed to hand finish the sewing after I had put my sequins inside.  The sequins I chose were a mix from SpiegelMom Scraps and the Maggie Holmes set from a previous Like For Ever kit.

This turned out very differnt from how I had imagined it, but I will definitely be making this type of layout again.  I love the finished article!

Thanks for stopping by!
