Hello Roadies! It's Ronda here with you today to share one of my favorite layouts of late. The title is a play on the picture and my name. My dad has been going through old slides and stumbled across this photo of me as a toddler sleeping on the couch.
This layout started as a color story set against the black & white photo. I love the aqua color paired with the orangy-red color. I added in some browns too in both the embellishments and and stamp ink.
After selecting my colors, I started pulling together my embellishments and stamps that reinforce my story. I love adding in bits of kraft onto the layout so I also pulled various kraft embellishments. After painting the background with Maya Mists, I laid the embellishments out on the page.
Once I felt I had a good placement of the pieces, I stamped some images in brown ink. I then took the chipboard elements and painted them with Maya Mist, mixing some reds & oranges together to get the color I wanted. I used both machine and hand stitches on the chipboard pieces, kraft pieces, and metal pieces.
I love how the transparent camera looks on the colored background. I used a french knot to make the button of the camera bringing the orangy-red color around the page. I journaled in a brown ink pen adding that finishing touch.
