As you may know, I spent five years on the Webster's Pages design team. I truly loved every minute of it. Brandin and the rest of the crew became my 'scrappy family'. But, at the end of 2012 I decided that I needed to make some changes and decided that it was time to move on. Well, I was thrilled when they contacted me and asked me to be the GDT for January. I was sent the gorgeous New Year, New You line and had so much fun creating. Here's the layout I made using the line.
I started off by creating the background. I mixed some aqua gouache paint with water and dripped it onto the paper. Then, I used a straw and blew it around. I wanted to give it kind of a 'fireworks' look.
Once it dried, I added the picture and layered some of the paper elements onto it.
I cut a few thin strips of paper and rolled them around a pencil to make a curly-q. And I added some of my favorite Studio Calico gold stars.
This pic cracked me up! As I mentioned in the post below, we spent New Year's Eve in Philly with our family and some friends. Here I am with my friend, Amanda. My funny hubby decided to photobomb us!
I love the colors in this line so much. I made a couple of non New Year's cards and will share them with you next.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
