Welcome to the Technique Tuesday June 2019 Release Blog Hop. You must be arriving from - a list of all the participants has been added at the bottom of this post for your convenience. It is always a fun day when you get to play with stamps, and this month's Laugh and Smile Stamp Set is one that will be a staple in my documenting.
The rectangular shape of the sentiments in the stamp set were the catalyst for the idea of building a tile background for this page.
I chose to use different tones of blue Distress Oxides to build the background ( Tumbled Glass, Blueprint sketch, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Zapphire)and loved the different sizes in the sentiment tiles of the Laugh and Smile Stamp set. To complete the page and the sentiments of the tiles, i simply spelled the word "SMILE" with gold foam stickers.
To complete my page, i chose to add the picture to a paper from the Pinkfresh Studio Simple and Sweet collection, and decided to build a subtitle for the page by using the Layered Smile Crafting Dies and metallic Kraft paper from Tim Holtz' Idea-o-logy collection.
To continue the tile look of the layout, i added a few word embellishments that had the same shape and small gold accents. A few lines of journal and the gold ink splatters complete this page.
I love how easy this came together, and the graphic look of the layout. The following video will show you how the layout came together using the new stamp and dies:
Remember to check Technique Tuesday for the new releases, and check the Laugh & Smile stamp set and the coordinating Layered Smile Crafting Dies and Layered Laugh Crafting dies, they will sure be a staple on your collection. If you have questions on how this came together, please do not hesitate to contact me.
