This is Ty's page. All of the pages are simple. I stuck to one theme of photo's, and one DSP set. I chose Le Jardin. I thought it was elegant, but not too girly. Most of the pages do not have a bunch of scallops because I was working with boys. I also tried to keep the floral images to a minimum. Except for Taylor's page, I got to even add bling to that page ;) For Ty, I added Always Artichoke behind his photo. Then I had another mat created with Bashful Blue and Basic Black. I love the look of the thin mat using Basic Black. I basically stacked paper for his page, and added some doodling with my white gel pen. I will say this: TIP ALERT : I punched out all different shapes under those layers. I did not waste any paper in all this layering!! For example, directly behind Ty's photo is Always Artichoke. Before gluing Ty to the A.A. paper, I punched out photo corner's, circle's, what ever punch would fit and not be seen!! I do that for all my layers. I have a container that holds all my punched out shapes. Most of them I turn right around and use for the project I am working one, but in this case, looks like I didn't use punches. This page is with Bowen and Spencer. Ok, they aren't actually decorating eggs, you can tell because they aren't wearing tye dye like the other kids. But it is the same time frame, and they are just ADORABLE. I really like this shot, so I added it. Another simple page. Just added journal and white doodles.
Gotta say, this is one of my fav's. Lots of punches used here. I should go back and add punches to Ty and the cousins pages.... think I will ;) They add so much, as you can see!! Plus, I love blue, and Q's page has blue through out it. The face he is making is priceless. The concentration! Whew, what had work it is dipping eggs into dye!
That sums up my Mother's Day projects for my mom!! Can I get back to card making now??? Hee Hee
Happy Stampin' Friends!
