A Wedding Layout

Hey Friends!

I'm back today to share a really quick and easy layout I made with some leftover pieces from The Paperie's March kit.

It all started with the background paper by Creative Imaginations.  The paper is a beautiful, heavy-weight cardstock  and has a resisting image printed on it. - perfect for mixed media techniques. I took out my favorite stencil, Blazonry by Balzer Designs, and my favorite mist, SC Mister Huey Clay and spritzed. I thought this was going to be the first of many layers but I loved how it looked so much I stopped right there.

I added a sheet of vellum to soften the pattern...

...and thought, "wow, I'm done". I've never ever made a background so quickly.

I grabbed a sheet of kraft paper and typed a favorite quote by Mary Anne Radmacher.

It reads:

Live with intention.
Walk to edge.
Listen hard.
Practice wellness.
Play with abandon.
Choose with no regret.
Continue to learn.
Appreciate your friends.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.

And here is the whole page.

A super simple layout but I love it.  And, as it turns out, this page is just perfect for this week's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Vintage Challenge blog. The challenge is Quotable and everyone who makes a project and posts it on the SSS Vintage Challenge blog is entered to win a $50 gift certificate - sweeet! So, quote the quotable (or unquotable) and post your project. I'll be looking for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
