100% Me

Hellooooooo! Today I'm sharing another one of my FAVORITE pages made with the March SFTIO kit entitled, "Honesty." I'm sharing some about the emotional side to this page over on the SFTIO blog today, but here on my blog I'm going to share a bit about the making of this page.

Every month, I decide on one medium to use on my pages. This month is the month for white mist. In the past, I've used gesso, gelatos, paint, etc. Something artsy. 

For this page, I reallllly wanted to use the awesome viewfinder stencil included in the kit. So, I used it as a mask and misted over it. Then I picked up the mask and realized there was a LOT of mist on the stencil, so who not just flip it over and use it like a stamp? So that's what I did! I think it's cool that it showcases the negative of the viewfinder and also actually has the shape of the viewfinder on one page! Then of course I splattered some more mist drops on the page. I love the effect of it! Not too bold. Nice and subtle. 

As soon as I saw the "Ring Ring" paper from the Pebbles line From Me to You included in the kit, I KNEW I had to fussy cut those little phone dials! They're too cute not to! Side note: I'm totally loving all the mint blue-green in this kit. Totally tickles my fancy. :) Ok-- back on topic. No, the dials are not perfect circles, but what did someone say-- "It adds to the homemade effect"? Yeah, I like that. It's made by ME, not a machine. So it's not going to be 'perfect.' I'm ok with that. ;)

So there's a little bit about page #2 for this month! Thanks for stopping by! :) Be sure to check out more about this page here
