Todays Layout.

Today I'm trying something that I hadn't really thought of since I started scrapping my daughter's pages.If I do inky I do vintage....or else I just go with the bright girly colors with no ink or maybe the ink color I am working with (blue usually or pink LOL or green). Here's the scoop...I saw the most lovely set of Layouts over at My Creative Scrapbook which were done by the UBER talented Mommy5X...she has the most lovely inky style- they are rich and deep. Yes those of you that know me know I love my ink but what I never thought to do is what she does...she does these beautiful Layouts and she uses ink with these beautiful Brilliant papers. I have always thought more along the lines of "vintage" when I think of inking. I never really thought about adding them to bright papers DUH!! so I gave it a whirl...what do you think??

I just realized you can't read the journaling it reads...
"Whether it happens to be watching Baby Einstein, reading a book or playing a game...being together is always... [TIME WELL SPENT]"
This is a twist on many levels on an Ali sketch...for some reason I thought the photos called for were horizontal and they weren't they were vertical (rolling eyes at myself) also when I went to print the pics, they wanted to cut off the photoshopping I had done (my printer likes to crop and I didn't want them cropped so I had to put the white border and then cut it off in order to leave the detail. So the pics are going a different way and they are a different size, however I think it still has great flow and Ali would be the first to tell you YOU CAN ADAPT THE SKETCH!

  1. Another great layout Dolly! Makes me want to bust out my Ali books and get some pages done. I love the way the inking looks on the bright papers. I may have to try that someday.

  2. Bust them out girly!! I can't wait to see your LOs! I love the inking on the bright colors too...I don't know why I was thinking that you couldn't or shouldn't use inks on bright colors...I was just thinking girly pink/green/blue, not thinking I could meld everything I love into one!
