Mixing the old with the new :)

One of my favourite things to do is to mix older product with newer product or use a technique that is trending right now so the older product doesn't look so dated in my layouts :)

New Products Used
  • Studio Calico Pattern Papers
  • Studio Calico Wood Veneer Birds
  • American Crafts White Fabric Stickers
  • Twine
  • Vellum
Older Products Used
  • Making Memories Foam Letter Stamps
  • EK Success Classic Pooh Stickers
  • K&Company Border Strip
  • KI Memories Puffy Bird Sticker
Trendy Techniques Used
  • Layered paper and embellishments

  • Watercolours - I used these to paint the hearts in the layers, paint the wood veneer birds, to make the title and to "splatter" things.

  • Using "negatives" like I did in the journaling block.
  • Using shapes to make the banner at the top.  This is one of my favourite things about this layout and it was heavily inspired by Akihasmomma over at Studio Calico I LOVED how she made garland for her More Happy Little Moments project  

This is one of my most favourite photo's of my oldest daughter and oldest twin.  I love how close they are at that moment and that you can feel the love that they have for each other :)  We've always been huge Winnie the Pooh fans here at our house so when I saw this photo I immediately thought of the quote where Pooh tells Piglet you "feel" love.  I think it fits perfectly :)

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all are having a FANTASTIC weekend!
