For something a tad different this time (or at least different for me), I completed a scrapbook layout. I just love the new My Acrylix Stamp Set called "Summer Breeze." As I was studying it, photographs I have taken over the years of light houses came to mind. I chose to use the new paper packet called Miracle. Some of you may remember Miracle from a special deal last year. The packet is expanded and is wonderful. Please click on the layout to enlarge it for all of the details.
A couple things to note in the Layout. In the upper left corner, I cut pennants out and used the center for a portion of the title. I added chocolate eyelets, strung them on white hemp and matted on a piece of cocoa card stock that has been heavily distressed, sanded and marked with a colonial white and cocoa marker. I wanted to replicate the look of the pennants strung on the mast of a sailing ship. I repeated that element on each picture as a caption to tell where I took the photograph. I added the cranberry brads to highlight the red on several of the light houses.
I love including stamping in my layouts. I used both the light house and sailboat featured in Summer Breeze. If you look closely, I colored both boats with cranberry (to repeat the accent). I also added just a touch of Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter in the upper window. And, I suppose I have dated myself using the title..."The Guiding Light." I remember my Grandmother faithfully watching the soap opera. :o)
