Imagine.

I have been having a lot of fun with Studio Calico's Neverland kit this month.  I have made three pages so far and have not even cut into my favorite papers yet.  This month I swear I am finally going to use Kesi art paper on a real layout, I swear! 

I made this page last week, and I love it.  I used the b-side of an echo park paper.  The front is full of PL style journaling cards, but none of them really spoke to me as much as this cool maze pattern.  Blue is also a fave background color for me. 
I used gesso on the bubbles stencil.  Avinash punched these hearts for me the other day (much to my initial horror!), but turns out I really like them and the bokeh effect they create on the page. 
I added a few wood chevrons, puffy foam stickers and die cut shapes I made.
I misted some fabric thickers in red and added a few different ones for contrast, blue foam, silver glitter and grey chipboard
Totally channeling Soaphouse Mama Ashli and tried out some pen doodling here and there.  I continued the doodling and bits and pieces across the page as well as the photos for continuity.  Linking this up for Simon Says Stamp Water challenge

 Another Neverland page.  I made a big die cut background for this one.  I cut apart the new Maggie Holmes quote paper and stitched on some favorite lines.  I added layered a few more papers under my photo, anchors and red starburst.  Anchors are a bit weird I admit, but I think they can be used non-thematically.  Like butterflies or birds.  Or with birds?  I think it worked.
This MME pinwheel paper was a lot of fun to cut up and use as embellishments.  The colors in the paper are a bit muted, but it still looked nice.  I just scattered some candy dots and drops of mist around to finish it up.

And last but not least.  My first page for the new One Story Down!  I was so happy when they re-opened their virtual doors.  One of my favorite designers over there is Two More Days.  I used her Welcome to the Weekend kit for this page.

  2. Nirupama...Your layout is so lovely! I love the aqua background color and the paper you've chosen. The bit of stenciling with white gesso or whatever you used looks really good in the center of your page and really draws the eye toward those adorable photos. I really like your design and all of the layering of embellishments you have done. All of your layouts you're featuring are very nice. Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
