The Good Life Today

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - THE GOOD LIFE TODAY -

Hi there!

Hope you all are well!  This week's assignment for Scrapbook Nerd was to create projects based on everyday moments, which is perfect for the way i document our lives.  So i went i pulled a picture of what i see on a normal basis to create this page.

The background was first created using Distress Oxides so that they match papers from various Paige Evans collections. I chose a masculine palette to match the picture i am using.  Once the inks had been applied with a foam applicator so that they look like strips of color, a Kaisercraft stencil and a baby wipe was used to create the starry background.   Some ink was diluted and added to the bottom of each color strip followed by stamped images of stars using the Turn The Page stamp set and the respective inks.

While the inks completely dried, I went ahead and backed the cut out (created with a Just Nick Studio cut file) with papers from a few of Paige Evans collections (in case you don't know,  i have them all, have hoarded most of them, and love them all!!!).  A bit of foam adhesive creates the dimension look of the title.

After setting the title on the background,  the picture was backed and layered with the same papes used on the title.   Now to embellish, i went through all the collection pulling stars embellishments from papers, washi tapes and even fussy cutting some.  Gotta love the little rub ons stars from the latest Pick Me Up collection.

I pulled a few embellishments from the collections so that they will match the colors of the background, and even managed to tie a heart charm (form Oh My Heart ) to one of the paper clips from the Take Me Away collection.  Here is the final layout:

Love how this turned out!  I love documenting everyday moments,  as they are the ones that we take for granted sometimes, in a way that they become stars in my scrapbook journey.

Stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check for all the materials used in this page.  As always let me know if you have questions on how this was put together.
