I started by mounting the green stripe to the gray and white floral. Next, I used Heidi Swapp's polka dot art screen to add those glittery, yellow-green dots. It was my first time using an art screen, and I'll be honest - it didn't go very well. When I pulled the screen off, it tore my paper in a few spots. No big deal because I was going to cover that area with my photo anyway, but I will need to sit down and play more before using another art screen on another layout.
Fun tidbit.... We are staying with my parents for a little while as we are between houses (I'm literally waiting for the call to come pick up keys!), so my scrapbooking stash has been, let's say, limited. I really wanted to layer my photo with tissue paper, but I didn't have any. I remembered that a wedding gift had been dropped off for my sister, so I asked her if she had thrown away the tissue paper yet. Luckily, she had not! So, it's kind of fun that this layout about her wedding contains a little bit of tissue paper from a wedding gift. :)
Thanks for stopping by today! Tessa
