Simple to Stupendous with Prima Marketing

Hi there!
Another blog post from me...
Today, I`m sharing with you my design team work for Prima Marketing . We have once a month a new feature at Prima Marketing`s blog where we create Simple to Stupendous layout{s}.
This is my vision of a simple layout turned into a stupendous one :-)

The title of this layout is totally inspired by the photo of my kids & I. These kids brighten each and every day of my life and gosh, I love them so much. Hubby took this photo of us and as usually kids were showing off their artistic side -----> My favourite photos! Pity I didn`t pull any face here ;-)

My Simple Layout
As you can see this is a really simple layout. 
  • The background is a mixture of two pattern papers from two different collections.
  • One of the papers was distressed and then adhered on matching colour card stock.
  • Before adding the framed photo I did a simple masking using PanPastels and a black fine-liner to outline the mask.
  • Adding a few fussy-cut flowers, Sizzix die, the title and stamping on the right bottom side was everything I did here....

  • Before adding any flowers, crystals, dies, etc. I stamped three swirls.
  • I decorated the clock with a pearl in the middle so it`d match the crystal swirls.
  • The Imaginarium Designs chipboard was painted with a few different paints and the then the fussy cut little girl was adhered on top.

  • For my "journaling" - I firstly stamped the label ---> Then I cut it out ---> and then I glued it on the pattern paper.

Well, I hope you liked today`s post!
Wishing you a beautiful day and lots of smiles :-)))
