in Art Helps Me Breathe


Today’s layout for class. My students wanted a beach layout, which may seem strange this time of the year. But usually we are scrapping pictures from a few months ago. The stores don’t seem to get this. Right now, everything is Christmas. But those pictures won’t be taken or scrapped for two months. Anyway, this is nice thick glossy card stock by Stamping Station. This time, I actually used the matching sticker sheet – unusual for me. But I like the big ‘Oregon Coast’ lettering behind the Li’l Davis Design invisible letters. The chipboard swirls (I forget who made those) were painted with acrylics. Had fun mixing colors on those. Playing with paints is something I need to do more. This should be a quick easy page with five 4×6 photos, two of which were slightly cropped. For the first time, I did my journaling on an embossable laminate sheet. After printing on the computer, the ink is wet and I immediately sprinkled on black powder and heated. I like that. Sorry, it doesn’t show. I took the photo before I added the journaling. But it is located to the left of the big swirl.
