Cousins

Hey there!
It's a beautiful day here in Wisconsin! I have been scrapping and thought I would share one of the layouts I created.
I used a photo of Austin and a few of his cousins at another cousins wedding about a year and half ago. I dug in my stash and grabbed That's My Boy collection from Echo park and added some Creative Embellishments wood veneer and chipboard to it.
I am playing along with the April Creative Embellishments challenge, Scrap Our Stash Golden Globe challenge and Scrap The Boys Let's Go Geo challenge.


I used chipboard triangles from Creative Embellishments and colored them black with a Sharpie. I backed them with patterned papers from Echo park and placed them on my watercolor background. I fussy cut a few hot air balloons from another Echo Park collection. I added a label and a sticker popped up with foam: 


I did use a Tim Holtz stencil on my background and added modeling paste through it before I added the watercolors. When they were dry, I outlined the diamonds lightly with a marker. I added a few more stickers and my fav washi tape. I added a bit of machine stitching over my title:


I colored the clouds with a Gelato and added another fun hot air balloon here:


Here is the inspiration photo from Creative Embellishments:

This was such a fun layout to create and I love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day! I am off to enjoy the weather!
