My Mini-Me

I have this picture from years ago that has been in my pictures to scrap forever!  Inspiration hit when I was thinking about a layout for the Fun Kits group that I am a member of on Facebook.  The month of June, the inspiration was PinkFresh Studios.  I had a few embellishments from previous Hip Kits, a 6x6 paper pad from Heidi Swapp's Dreamy line, and an embellishment kit full of Pinkfresh Studio embellishments that I got for a steal at Simon Says Stamp.  Since I didn't have any 12x12 papers, I decided to make my own background with Liquitex acrylic paint.  I love this stuff!  I always wait until I have a coupon for 50% off though to make it a better price for my budget. 

For my background, I mixed the turquoise with white to create an ombre effect on the background.  I then used my Amy Tangerine flower stencil with texture paste.  I love how it turned out!

I love the texture that the stencil gives to the background.
I popped the banner up so that the house could be tucked in behind it.
My favorite part of this layout is the sequin hearts. 

If you would like to take a peek at my process I have a video.
