hello adorable

Welcome to the first 2017 challenge from The Memory Nest! Make it Monday No. 79 was a super fun sketch to play along with and I had a great time getting a little artsy with my layout.

Initially this layout was all black and white, which worked, but I felt as if it needed a splash of color, so I pulled out some gesso and watercolors and added a few pops of {messy} color. The 'hello' was stamped. 

pp, stamps, alpha and white love flair: Felicity Jane 
black flair: Prima
twine, gesso, and water color paints

YAY for you and so well deserved! You make such amazing Layouts! I saw the layout from Ashlyn's surgery - and all I can say is WOW! What a difference that surgery made for her! Praying things continue to get better for her and your family!!! I'm hoping to get back into crafting this next week before heading back to work! Glad I'm able to stop by and say HI!
