Happy Friday friends!! Whooot! One more day until we celebrate my B-day. I am looking forward to some family time.  Nicolle here today sharing a layout. My daughter went to NYC for the first time last year at the end of November. She drove down with her ex boyfriend and it took 8hrs. They did a lot of walking while there. They stopped into a couple stores along the way. One being ‘M and’ store. Perfect for my lil sweet tooth.



First I stamped the bokeh and distressed star images onto the white background paper using a yellow faber castell bit pitt artist pen and sapphire distress paints.

161 flat

Evidence: circles, clocks, wet medium, triangles, stars and metal.

Testimony: Documents a journey:

As Kayla walked the streets of NYC on a whim she stopped into a store called ‘M and’ M&M world. They had a lot of fun looking at all the displays of candy.



For the stars in my universe frame I added a coat of gesso for a primer. I then used an orange artist bit pitt pen to add color to the circular sections of the frame. The stars were altered using a yellow big pitt pen. For added interest I added little red micro beads in different sections of the frame. The 4″ clock face was altered using a red gelato. With the basic font chipboard letters. I created the word TIMES and altered them using blue glitter.



I altered the hashtag word #happy with TH red brick distress paint and added red micro beads over.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. On Monday we will be announcing our new design team. Be sure to stop back to see who made it on the team.
