I am back again today with another process video and I thought I would share with you all the prettiness with a few up close photos and a little explanation of the layout. I am really enjoying blogging and vlogging my layouts and just feel the two really do go together. I hope you are enjoying the blog as a little extra look into my layouts.
This isn't the best quality photo but I haven't been able to take a better one with the amount of cold rainy days we have had here on the Gold Coast lately. Before I knew it, it was time to post this layout on the blog and I had to work with what I had. Regardless of the bad lighting, I just love the lightness and whiteness of this layout. I decided to focus on the blue colours in the kit this time around. Working with the light blues, teals and the black and white papers.
If you haven't seen this cutie in my layouts before, where have you been? This little cutie is my adorable nephew Vinnie James and he is literally the light in my life. I am like his second mum and have looked after him on and off for the past six months when his Mumma needs a break. Raising a now 1 year old by yourself is incredibly hard and sometimes she just needs a break.
This layout (if you hadn't guessed from the title) is about Vinnie's first (real) steps. Believe it or not, it happened while we were having a professional family photoshoot on the family farm. We wanted some single shots of Vinnie and left him resting against a two rail fence. As soon as the camera came out Vinnie took a step, and another, and another. 12 complete steps. He was walking directly towards the camera and the joy in his cheeky cheeks says it all. He was so happy and pleased with himself.
Vinnie still really loves cameras (especially our digital SLRs) and loves posing for photos and then seeing the display for his face. He definitely got that from his Aunty Nae.
Ok back to the layout, I kept this layout very white and clean. I layered white die cut leaves from Cocoa Vanilla Studios digital downloads. I just love these basic leaves and ferns. They compliment every layout and just add that little extra dimension and interest. I also grabbed the sewing machine again and did a little messy zig zag stitching over them to just give a more playful, boy on the farm look, if that is even a style lol.
I love this little corner so much... I have really enjoyed playing with paper strips and corners. I love the nice bold alpha stickers from the Felicity Jane Next Stop kit!! They are simply divine and now only available if you purchase the kit. The bow I have been in love with forever. I think it is from an old Dear Lizzy collection but I really cant remember. The style and colour was perfect for this layout and the fact that it was a boy layout was not going to stop me from using this bow. In the process video you see me moving it around so much, I was determined, nothing was going to stop me from using this bow.
Hope you enjoyed todays layout lovelies,
Ill be back on Thursday with another process video and layout,
Love you all,
