Homespun Happiness

 This layout was designed using the Simple Stories Homespun Paper Range.
I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and use a few different techniques and mediums. To create the background I used a script stencil and dylusions spray.
I then used black bazill to frame my pattern squares and make them pop.
I then found a page map I liked and started layering my squares in a pattern I liked. Making my photo the focal point.
I love black and white photo’s. They are great to use when you have a lot of patterns.

Once I had the placement, I then took a photo to refer back to and started to adhere in place.

I love these new #hashtag and arrow designs from Dusty Attic.
The heart is from the sticker sheet and to give it some dimension , I raised it up on some chipboard and then sanded the edges.
    I used some washi tape and hessian to help build the layers.
I am very happy with the finished layout and even happier that I can show off my gorgeous family.
Keep the Faith
