Trying Something New!

Fun Times!!! Everyone went fishing for the day and I got some time to myself to scrap and try something new that I've always wanted to do.

I love Rahel Menig from Swiss Girl Designs and I've seen her paint on her layouts and loved it. I've wanted to try it for so long just didn't have the courage to do so, UNTIL now. I felt like it was time to SOAR!!! Here's how it turned out.

I used an acrylic paint I got at Craft Warehouse and painted a frame for where I planned to put the pictures down.

Here's a close up of the embellishments in the top left corner. I recently took a class at Studio Calico called Washi Workshop and that's where I got the idea to put washi tape down and lay the bird punch-out over top. I cut the clouds out of patterned paper and used foam dots to add depth.

Here's another close up. I distressed the edges of the paper framing the pictures. I used my Jenni Bowlin Scalloped Banner Squeeze Punch  by Fiskers for the cute banner and the Jenni Bowlin Tab Squeeze Punch. I used the Diamond Boarder Punch as well. As you can see, I love punches!!!

This layout was so much fun to do. I love trying new techniques especially when I'm happy with the outcome  :)
