Last December my friend took these wonderful pictures of my boys (plus some of me, my mom, and my daughter) when they were a week away from being 3 and 7 years old. I just fell in love with the head shots of both boys, but could never find the inspiration to create a layout with them, until now!!
Putting pictures in Polaroid frames is huge right now, so I could not resist playing around with the idea and with the Maya Road frames. My pictures were not the correct size, so I added a paper border inside and then added their names below. I also wanted to try out my new Martha Stewart circle punch (it made the doilies behind the pictures). I then added in my own layers and clusters for lots of dimension and fun. You can also see Heidi Swapp's file folder tucked in the layers!!
Here you can see some of the May Arts twine looped around to make a fun flourish behind the Prima flowers. I then added in a fun Tim Holtz charm, which is all stacked up on top of Maya Road chipboard, Basic Grey 25th and Pine die cuts and paper, and some wonderful Susan K. Weckesser Stamps used with various colors of red and brown Ranger Distress Inks.
I used the following sets of stamps from Susan K. Weckesser all layered on top of each other for lots of dimension:
Here you can see some I stamped on the Maya Road Chipboard with one of the Susan K. Weckesser Stamps after painting it with Clearsnap Smooch Paint. You can see Cosmo Cricket wood stars, Prima lace, and some of my paint splatters and circle marks I made with Tattered Angels and Heidi Swapp Mists (here is a link to the tutorial on how I make them).
