Hello everyone! This is my first blog post for the SpiegalMom DT and I am super excited! The layout I am bringing you today is a traditional layout about family and we all know how that goes! Lol. Anyway this is a photo of my daughter and her husband who are in the faded background and their two children in the front. Taken in beautiful Monterey California, you just can’t go wrong with a photo shoot at the beach.
I just love the colors in this layout and those sequins are right on the spot! I used the Spiegelmom scraps Wedding Bells sequins and glued them where they dropped.
I used Tombo Mono Multi glue because when it dries, it dries into a matt finish. I also used some ink in Glass Slipper from SC with a stencil of hearts, which gave it a tone on tone look.
My favorite part about this layout is the hidden journaling, which I used a large Glassine bag to hold a 4X6 journaling card and glued it to the back of the photo, added a tab, and labeled it NOTE, so that you can retrieve the journaling card. I have done this technique before when I had a layout that was too busy for journaling or when I just want to hide the words. It’s another way of keeping your journaling private.
Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure that you check out the Spiegelmom shop for more goodies and I will be back next week for another 12×12 layout. Oh! Be sure to use my coupon code Felicia15 to receive a 15% discount on your purchases! Have an awesome day!
