Hello Hello, it’s Michelle here and I have a new layout to share with you today as part of our ‘Throwback Thursday’ feature. As you are probably aware our Throwback Thursday posts usually feature collections from our past or a particular product that we’ve not shared for quite some time. For todays post I have used my favourite and most used collection – Make a Wish, and made a feature of the Wood Veneers from the collection.
The Make a Wish collection is PERFECT for documenting ALL the special birthday moments and so many other sweet memories. As I’ve used plenty of it for Leila I thought it was time I found a ‘new’ subject to scrap, and what better timing than my sweet little niece’s first birthday. SO CUTE!
To start the layout I’ve used the 12×12 piece of PARTY MIX paper as the background and layered the photos off centre before going a little crazy with layering ephemera and veneer pieces to create one massive ‘cluster’ of sorts.
This sweet girl is such a little sweetheart, and that toothy grin is THE BEST!
Now we all know I’m not one to go too crazy with mixed media so I chose to keep all the wood veneer raw. I also felt that if I changed the colour of it, they would become lost within the mix of embellishments and then they’d no longer be much of a feature. I did add a little hint of glitter to each piece using a glitter brush but unfortunately it only shows up in person.
I tucked most of the veneer pieces in under the die cut ephemera , but a few were added it straight onto the photos to give more dimension and texture
Seriously that little face is pure perfection!!!
And I have I mentioned how much I am still LOVING the floral pieces from this collection.. Layered with dimensional dots and folded slightly to add even more dimension.
Lastly I finished the layout with a small cluster of more ephemera, an accessory sticker and one last veneer piece to give balance to the layout.
I really enjoyed creating this layout and dipping into some older stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time, Happy Scrapping
