I went to Maggi’s on a mission. I needed to get away, relax, have great food and great drinks and great company. I also needed some good uninterrupted creative time. I am so surprised at how much we both got done with, especially since we took an afternoon to head on to the distillery and the winery. I think it was the perfect storm together my act together and be creative.
Now with this layout if you can’t tell how little Maksim was, its been sitting on my desk for a while just waiting for the time to get it done. I started with the base, the paper was an old collection~2014. But I loved the blacks and greens.
Starting on the base, lay down a stencil, and moved onto the a bold black paste with the squares from the distress patterned stencil.
I did make a video, So it’s not my normal set up so please be patient with the process. https://youtu.be/NmWULniOSUo
I got some cardboard stash from Maggi and painted with some Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic. I added it to add a little lift to the base of the focal point.
The fun part of heading somewhere else where there is an abundance of supplies you don’t normally have or you try something and get “enabled” to spend some money. Let’s just say I did pick up a few things when I was gone. Using some nice embossing enamels, I covered the smaller of the Fancy Rectangle Frame Set. I also covered part of the Cattails along with the Hurricane Lamps.
Now it was just a matter of putting it all together and adding the Little Man Title on the page. A little enamel and a bit of the heat gun. This is one of my favourite photos of my little man, so young and innocent.
I truely love how this looks it turned out pretty much how I envisioned it. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for joining me today! Be creative!
