Video - 213 in 2013: SO my guy
by Lilith Eeckels
Welcome to another episode of 213 in 2013. This is the next instalment of a video series where we provide you with 4-5 prompts. By the end of the year you'll have a list of 213 creative prompts to help jump start your creativity. You can find a list with all the prompts from previous episodes HERE [twopeasinabucket.com] .
This week I chose a picture of my son Robin. He is the sweetest boy and his smile and look just melt my heart each and every time.
I really wanted to highlight this photo of him and decided to use it twice. Instead of just printing it twice on photo paper I printed a second larger format onto vellum. I love the transparent look it has and love how the patterned paper below shows through.
As you can see the most of the products I used are from the new Dear Lizzy LUCKY CHARM collection. At first it seemed to be quite girly but the dark blue and aqua colours really make it a versatile line that can be used for so many themes.
The main design feature of the layout is the cluster with the papers and the photo. I really love layering different patterned papers and the Lucky Charm collection has so many patterns to choose from and the designs are all unique! This makes combining papers so easy.
Here is a quick reminder of the 4 prompts from the video.
1. Print on vellum or cardstock
2. Paint lines with mists or watercolours
3. Layer papers from the same collection
4. Hand stitch two patterns together
My challenge for you is to use at least 2 of the 4 prompts. I'd love to see your work and don't forget to upload your layouts to the TwoPeas gallery. At the end of the March we'll draw a winner from all challenge participants for the month and reward them with a $10 2Peas Gift Certificate!
