Just You

Hello there fantastic people of the internet!
I have a layout of little baby Chloe to share. The photo is one of the many photos I used to take of her whenever she wore a new outfit, so there is nothing overly important about the photo, I just like it. Hence the full title is 'Nothing special Just You Sitting on a table In front of flowers' literally describing what is in the picture. (Of course I do think Chloe is extremely special.)

Just You

I took inspiration for this layout in two places. First up the current sketch over at Sketchabilities, which can be found here.

Next up was case #91 over at CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration.

Actually, it was probably more like three inspirations. The other one was the papers I have used. They are one of the latest collections from Websters Pages called 'Postcards from Paris 2'. It is not often (well almost never) that I stay within a collection when making a page but this time I have.

The papers are amazing! And are such good quality it seems a shame to cut them up. But thankfully I have the 6x6 paper pad as well and was very conservative even with that so I have plenty more to play with another time. Yay. I fussy cut most of the details from the pad and used the left over bits to mat the photos as per the sketch.

I felt as though the edges were too stark even after a lil bit of distressing and had just been visited by a work friend who generously brought me a gift box which had straw stuff in it, can you guess were it ended up? Yep. I sprayed a bit with green glimmer mist and stuck some down.

I also brought out yellow glimmer mist and the texture paste. I pasted over stencil waited for it to fry then sprayed the yellow around the place.

I have included hidden journalling into the page which tucks just behind the photo. I chose to go with the nothing special idea and the CSI case 91 prompt of something I enjoy everyday. Which is simply doing the mum things for my daughter. Its everyday, basic, routine and I love every bit of it!

This layout is again a different style for me. I don't think I can claim is its not my usual style as I seriously don't seem to stick to one style. I like to let the 'feel' of the photo decide.
Thanks for popping by.
