I am a little later than I had planned to share this LO after NSD, but life with children seems extra crazy this time of year. Everyone seems to try to squeeze in one last...everything. I did this page for National Scrapbook Day and made a video of my process using the Scrapbook Circle May kit, 'Here & Now.'
This is the sketch from our talented designer and Blog coordinator, Tessa Buys!

I decided to use the paint like lines in this gorgeous paper from the Fancy Free collection to create an implied division, like the sketch. I cut out a piece of the Pinkfresh Studio paper that is predominantly black and white and watercolored several of the leaves and flowers. I used it along that line of pattern change shown in the sketch.
I layered lots of the Fancy Free vellum die cuts, other Pink Pailsee die cuts and fussy cut pieces of the Amy Tan acrylic sheet underneath a photo cluster.
Using black thread, I stitched thru that entire layered line of embellishments. I also stitched across some of the vellum letter shapes for my title. I cut two pieces of patterned paper and places them at the bottom the layout exactly like the sketch. One piece I painted with black chalkboard paint and then added some journaling with a white gel pen.
I love all the bright colors in the May collection and they were perfect to highlight this photo of our oldest child, Lola! I hope you check out the video and have an amazing day!
