January layouts

Here are my kids scrap calendar pages for January.

For this one I kept things simple. I added texture to the carstock using a piece of old plastic fencing and some Glimmer Mist. I stamped the fruit images on pattern paper to give them more texture and depth. Finally I used Staz On to tone down unimportant ares of the photograph that were distracting from the focus. These are all easy tips you can use on your layouts too!

Recipe:
cardstock, stamps, ink: Stampin’ Up
pattern paper: stash scraps
journal stickers: October Afternoon
alpha: stash
spray ink: Tattered Angels
other: stitching, plastic fencing as mask

I thought I had shown you this next one already but I couldn’t find it in my image gallery. So here it is. For this one I used a sketch from Sketch Inspiration. In order to balance some poor photos I added a clear photo of my daughter’s face. To enhance the subject (her love of archeology) I used paint. I’ll have to admit that it was a bit more paint that I intended, but I think it works just fine.

Recipe:
pattern paper: Scenic Route, Fancy Pants (I think)
paint dauber: Ranger
punch: Stampin’ Up
stamps: Technique Tuesday
ink: Staz On
alpha rubons: stash

And this one you’ve seen before.
