Everyday I Think Of You . . .

Everyday is a happy day.

Notice the pleated washi tape?

Two 12 x 12 page layout
I loved the soft colors of this paper line. It made for a beautiful contrast for the pink blossoms in the photos. These photos of Amanda were taken last spring (May 2013) about a week before she left to serve a full-time mission for the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latterday Saints.
The light pink and black stripe is actually washi tape which I layered and folded/pleated. I used a white gel pen to hand write and add a bit if flourish.

Feathers In A Masculine Style

My son, Chris Huntsman with his dang cute boys!

This page was so much fun to do since I tried so many fun techniques.
I water and ink washed the back ground wood paper, 
then stitched and distressed the edges,
used Cricut to cut a background overlay,
which I inked with pigment inks and dauber
to achieve an ombre effect.
The same inking technique was used to achieve the 
shaded hue on the 'also, I love you'.
And then more stitching right thru the middle of the phrase.
Rock-n-roll technique was used on the fussy cut flowers.
I used this same inking style on the feathers-
choosing both colonial white and kraft paper
added to the uniqueness of each feather.
Add a staple and tie on some bronze thread-
ta-DA! A page to show off four awesome guys!
