i have a layout up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog!
i used the adorable Newton's Book Club stamp set and added to the patterned paper background!
first i covered the paper with gesso in the area around the photo. once it was dry, i added watercolor by using some water and Distress Inks! i think i used Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass here! and once all *that* was dry, i stamped over the background with a few Newton/book images and also the 'read relax repeat' phrase! i LOVE how it looks over that text background!
i also colored that sweet Newton with glasses reading, becuase it was toooo cute! and so perfect with that photo of my little Mann 'reading up' and 'studying' his hockey skills! ha!! (he was only 2-ish here, so he can't read, but every day in the pick up line, he would read that hockey magazine. it was hilarious!!)
i stamped the date and also used a few different letter stickers to create the fun title!
so that's my layout!
be sure to head over to the Newton's Nook blog to catch up on everything!
