Good Vibes Only

The lovely Louise of Thompson Craft Supplies was kind enough to send me the totally gorgeous Good Vibes stamps from Crate Paper. I can’t resist tiny stamps to add detail to a layout.

For my layout, I created the background with Distress Oxides (Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry) and Abandoned Coral (Distress Ink).

As mixed media takes me out of my comfort zone, I lined up my elements vertically. This allowed me to be messy but in an orderly manner! I laid out washi tape and strips of patterned paper (Fancy Pants Family & Co.). I also used a stencil to add some stars along the way.

Then for the fun part. Using the Good Vibes stamps and I stamped in between my elements. It's a good idea to stamp over elements to make sure that they integrated. I layered tags stickers and embellishments. I’m a real sucker for tabs around a photo. I just love Talking Tabs – so adorable!

Finally, I embellished the area for my title – Duly Noted. I love the two fonts together.
