Capture Little Moments

The moment I saw this paper, I knew I had to have it! But I will be honest, I did struggle with it a bit.... I let it sit on my desk for a week straight, looking at it everyday, letting ideas run through my head, until finally I wasn't "afraid" I wouldn't ruin it, lol!

I decided to highlight some of the words with watercolour paint.  The part I struggled with was keeping the layering of paper simple behind the photo.  I wanted to add more layers, but opted for less because of how bold the paper is.

Naturally I added sequins lol, (my poor boys) and splattered some Heidi Swapp Mustard Color Shine

and then added a cluster of embellishments.

I have a stack of papers that I love so much, that I haven't touched them in fear of "ruining" them... So I need to challenge myself to use them up! Maybe that could be a weekly challenge to myself on my blog?  Anyone interested in joining me? 


  1. Love what you did with that patterned paper, fab layout! I don't know if I have any that are too special, but definitely have ones that I struggle to use for other reasons. :)

  2. Very nice layout! Lately I'm finding it easier to cut into paper, maybe something in my head has finally clicked. Took enough years for that to happen. lol

  3. I really like how you highlighted some words - this layout is awesome!

  4. hoi hoi

  6. Very clever to paint around some of the words!
