I can't believe my itty bitty baby girl is a year old!
To celebrate, we had a one-derful (haha, aren't I funny?) birthday party with our family and friends. Ellie got to attack her very own chocolate cake. I'm sure you'll see photos in upcoming layouts. :)
I created this layout using one of my favorites from her one year photo session. I love that I can take my kids into the studio whenever I want!!
To create the blocks on the background cs, I used three shades of Glimmer Mist and four sheets of scrap cs/cardboard. I blocked off the areas I didn't want Glimmer Mist-ed and sprayed away, one block at a time. The patterns within the blocks were made by a napkin used as a blotter. After it all dried, I doodled the black lines around the blocks.
This design is loosely based on a sketch from The Color Room (Palette 51). I love their sketches, and need to make a real effort to get my interpretations on sketch and palette done BEFORE the deadline! ;)
