Amanda Lawrence - October - Part 1

Hello all! Can you believe it's October already?! It seems every time I blink it's a new month. Today I am here to share one of my latest Memory Maze pages which showcases a treasured photo of Miss 2 skipping through the grass.

Treasure every Moment

I wanted the photo to really be the focal point of the page, so I decided to cut my background paper into a sunburst pattern and lay it on white cardstock. This draws the eye back to the photo no matter where on the layout you look. I then decided to use Linda's Scribble from the 12x12 sheet to surround my photo. 

I used the 'treasure' word from one of the word sheets. I just adore this loopy font and the sheets are such great value for money. I simply coloured it with my silver sharpie before adding it to the page.

I also used some of the filigree leaves that come on the 12x12 sheet with the scribble. You get loads of extras on this sheet, it's jam packed with leaves, butterflies, dragonflies and birds as well. I also coloured these with my silver sharpie pen. 

My main floral cluster has more of the filigree leaves in it.

This last detail shot shows how perfect the scribble was for the 4x6 photo I used. I softened the raw chipboard by sponging on a light coat of gesso. It makes it white in appearance but not a stark white you would get if you painted it on.
