The myStamp BOX design team chose to work around the theme of Home and Family for this month’s showcase. I decided to work on a layout featuring this older picture of my husband with Nora. This is not the best picture ever to get scrapped, but the most meaningful pictures aren’t always your best ones. And so I thought it deserved a nice layout.
I used quite a lot of paper of the Portfolio collection by Pink Paislee. And of course a lot of myStamp BOX stamps. First of all I used the Timelines set to add interest to my background. I stamped the timelines randomly across my background paper in a way that they would show up from behind the picture and other layers. And I then added a layer of gesso on top to soften the harshness and contrast.
Onto the little speech bubble with the green heart I stamped the ‘my heart beeps for you’ stamp from the Programmed Robots set. I also used the polaroid frame from the Pixel Perfect set again. I stamped it onto white cardstock here. To get this weathered effect, I just smeared some ink along the edges and lightly overtop with a damp cloth.
The sentiment on the polaroid frame is from the Whatever set. Everything was stamped with Wet Cement Shadow ink from Hero Arts.
