First Day of School Layout by Tonya Gibbs AND Hazel and Ruby Blog Hop Winner

PerfectBeautiful_800

 I’ve really enjoyed seeing those “First Day of school” photos on Facebook & Instagram. It is always fun to look back at them as the years go by.  Today I’m sharing a layout that I created of my Nieces,  Averie (3rd grade) and Addie (pre-k).  This photo was shared by my Sister-Inlaw in Instagram.   Thanks Ashley for letting me use this photo!

I wanted my layout to have a “bubble gum pop” feel to match the age of my Nieces. I chose the bright toned Gelatos® Double Scoops®  in Mango, Lemon, Bubble Gum, Metallic Mint, and Margarita Mix.

To give my background some texture, I combined the, Gelatos® Double Scoops® in Metallic Mint with the Glass Bead Glitter Gel  this layout sparkles!  And what little girl, doesn't like a little glitter?

I opened up some standard mulberry flowers to expose the Styrofoam ball centers.  I used the  Stamper’s Big Brush Artist Pen  #107 Cadmium Yellow to color the centers.   I also used the  Glass Bead Glitter Gel on the edges of the petals to give them a little texture.

I have prepared a process video of me creating this layout. 

 

I hope I have inspired you to use those “First Day Of School” photos. Thank you for stoppin in today!
