Live, Love, in Full Color

SKW blog hop
Welcome to the SUMMER BLOG HOP between UmWowStudio and Susan K. Weckesser Inc! We’ve been sharing gorgeous bright and shining inspiration with you from both teams all week long, and today we are wrapping it up. Be sure to keep visiting, hopping and commenting to enter to win one of TWO prize packages. Each day is chock full of goodness and we don’t want you to miss a thing.
Here is my layout, made with the beautiful and colorful paper, and of course UmWowStudio chipboard and stencils:
live love in color, ALLassiter, UWS full

I used a photo of my two younger girls playing in the lake, a few weeks before we moved. The photo is black and white, but I added watercolor, and I love how it contrasted with the bright colors in the Susan K Weckesser papers.

The chipboard hearts from UmWowStudio were fun to alter by stamping using the Susan K Weckesser stamps. I also used her amazing stencil to create all sorts of movement along the outside edges of the photo, and along the side.

I used the banner stamps along the sides of the papers, in neon colors to pop. They are so whimsical and fun.

Finally I cut some of the words printed on the papers for a title. I thought it was fun and ironic to add “Live, Love, in Full Color” to a page with a black and white photo. We can always add more color to our lives. ❤

Thanks so much for having a look at my project! Remember, there are two amazing prizes up for grabs, but you need to leave me just a little love to be in the running. 😉 If you need to start at the beginning of the hop, visit the UmWowStudio blog or Susan’s Blog.

Gnome hugs to you and thank you for visiting today!
