Ready Set...GO! Layout!

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a FUN layout...hold on to your knickers, there's a TON of mixed media and painty goodness! Ha! I used about a million goodies from the shop, and don't forget: there's a Spring Fling section and a Stamp + Die section - all on SALE!

So let's get into the nitty-gritty here:
I started with a 12x12 piece of cardstock, then added gesso. Once that was dry, I added lots of Dina Wakely Media Paint to create the ombre background! Then I used a heart stencil and some sandy colored paint to add a layer of hearts! Once that was dry I added some text with a stencil and embossing paste! and then I watercolored with my Gansai watercolors ON TOP OF THAT in my favorite color EVER - Aqua!! 

Ok - whew! Are you still with me? Ha!
I did lots of layering with various papers from 6x6 scraps I had on my desk, and ephemera! Mostly I used puffy stickers, leatherette stickers and other embellishments from the Pinkfresh Studio new collections! 

I also used clear stickers from Amy Tangerine and Shimelle! The title is puffy stickers from the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection! 

I just love this picture of my little Menn jumping care free into the pool!! This is so real life, and how they live right now! I don't ever want it to change!!
Thank you SO much for stopping by! Be sure to take full advantage of the sales and enjoy your Mother's Day! :)
