…having a flashback…

IMG_8518

I’ve noticed that lots of mixed media scrapbookers tend to use gesso to cover their page before adding paint or whatever.  My issue with that is I usually really like the paper I’m using, so I’ve started using matte medium instead.  Same purpose, but clear.  So I grabbed some Amy Tangerine patterned paper and spread matte medium, then sprayed Dylusions ink through my Dylusions alpha stencil in a couple spots on my page.

With Scrap Around the World‘s moodboard this month, I got inspired by the writing, letters, and school atmosphere.  I also had yet to scrap the photos from my little guy’s first day of pre-school (he’s now in 1st grade).

I used cameras and hearts for my visual triangles.  That’s a Webster’s Pages cameo, a acrylic die-cut that I colored the heart green with paint markers, and a chipboard diamond from my Citrus Twist.

I stuck with grid and notebook designs in keeping with the school theme.  Simply Stories journaling card, Leftover tag from SC kit (I cut the top off for a previous project), chipboard shape with goil foil word

Happy scrapping!
