MAKE A WISH
MAKE A WISH
This is a simple single layout, using the beautiful blue and yellow tones of the Make a Wish paper! Instantly the name of this paper took me back in time to when my boy, between the ages of 2-5, every time we found a dandelion growing in our garden, my son always tried to blow and make a wish. Sadly for a few years he always managed to inhale the wish, this made me laugh! So, for my book I thought this was a nice story to remind him of this and how, even back then, he never gave up trying to succeed.
I used a sheet of Bazzill White 12” x 12”, I edged this with Distress Ink Faded Jeans, I then cut one sheet of Make a Wish to 11 ¾” x 11 ¾”. I then cut a sheet of Bazzill Coastal 10” x 10”, using another sheet of Make a Wish I cut 9 ½” x 9 ½”. I placed these on top of each other centrally.
For my Photo matt I cut a piece of Bazzill Candle Glow 5” x 7”, I then cut a piece of Woodgrain cardstock to 6 ½” x 4 ¼”. Again I edged this with Faded Jeans ink. I then finished with a photo of my dandelion.
For my title I used Woodgrain cardstock leftovers cut to 5 “x 1 ½”, again edged with Faded Jeans ink. I then cut some more Candle Glow 4 ½” x 1”. From the kit I then added the Simple Stories Cream Alpha’s, outlining them with my black micron pen. Carrying on from the pocket note theme on my double layout, I made my own note pocket cutting a square of 1 ¾” x 1 ¾” scoring an edge all round of 1/8”, using the 1/8” section to secure this to my layout with scor-tape. I then cut a piece of Candle Glow paper for my Journaling to insert inside. I added a small piece of All This and More paper to the front of the note – choosing a section with a yellow background and white flower.
My Dusty Attic of choice is a Spring Bloom #5, which I thought looked like a dandelion! I painted the stock of this with Acrylic Paint – Golden Moss and the bud part I applied Snow-Tex texture paste, which I thought gave this a good effect!
To finish off, from my stash I used a metal embellishment flower secured with a brad and a small glass heart stuck down with 3D Gloss Gel – I may add that the 3D Gloss Gel dries clear!!!
All done, and I hope my son enjoys reading this page!
