Well the new year is here! Time to put away my excuses and get back to work! And by work I mean scrapbooking :)
So without further ado....
Here is my first layout of 2014.
I love how this turned out! I added some white distress paint to the edges and across the middle of the paper (under where the photos were going). And then added some doodled lines with a black and white gel pen.
My inspiration for this came from Um Wow Studio's January sketch challenge. The chipboard banner pieces (which I covered in paper) and the chipboard stars (that I inked white and either doodled or added glossy accents too) plus the beautiful yellow badge are all from their fabulous store.
The papers and the journal sticker and border sticker are all from Echo Park's A Boy's Life collection. And the chalkboard pieces are from Studio Calico.
I'm really hoping to get a lot more layouts done this year than I did last. I may need to find a new challenge blog to help me stick with it. So if you know of any good ones, please leave me link in the comments!
