Little Moments a layout for Nani Ke Ola

Little Moments

Happy fall ya'll Kathleen here with a very special mixed media layout for you.My family flew in from around the country for my 60th birthday this year. It's not easy getting everyone together at the same time so I marched them down to our neighborhood trail and took family portraits.  It was hot and we were wilting!  But looking over them over I found this precious shot of my son and his family.

I love to use tags and those cut out cards on the back of the papers.  So let's gather them all up and create a fabulous collage style layout.

On the top left side of your layout {approx. 1/4 of the way down} cut a horizontal cut about 3" long.  Repeat the process on the lower right side of your layout {approx. 1/4 of the way up}.

Use your favorite border punch on the slit you created.  Add some masking and modeling paste to  and two different masks for added texture.  I also applied strips of drywall tape.

Now add mists and a touch of stamping.

Now for the collage work.  Using your border punch slit at the top as your guide cascade your tags and die cuts down from the left side to the right side tucking and layering as you go.
Finish up with some flowers and a touch of ribbon.

I hope this has inspired you to let your own imagination take flight.  Be sure to stop by the store for all of your scrapping supplies.  New things are being added for the holidays!

Creating with Paper and more Word Challenge
