Home Alone at Last | Niki Rowland
Hi everyone, this is Niki back with you today sharing a layout using goodies from the October Fox Box.
For this layout I have used the word 'home' and the little purple houses. These were both in the October Fox Box. I thought I would make the word 'home' part of my title and those houses are just the cutest hey!
I started off by painting two doilies in three colours of Shimmerz paints. I choose two purple colours and one navy. I applied colour to the doilies using the packaging technique and then I left them to dry. Once dry I positioned them onto my layout.
I've used a mixture of Paige Evans Truly Grateful and Maggie Holmes Heritage for this layout. I choose these collections becuase they contain that pretty mauve colour which went so perfectly with the little houses from the October Fox Box.
The word 'home' came in a lovely dark grey colour. I really love this colour becuase it's not quite so harsh as black and just softens the overall effect a little. I'm really enjoying multi-alpha titles at the moment so I have three fonts for this one...the Perspextive 'Home', the multi print Paige Evans Thickers for 'Alone' and Pinkfresh Studio alphabet stickers for 'at last'. I think the result makes for a title with added interest.
The theme of this layout is back to school. I sent my kiddies back to school after a long summer and we took this picture on the first morning of school. As much as I love them, they constantly argue so I was very happy to send them back to school and for my peaceful house to be restored (with the exception of my baby, but he doesn't count!)
Thanks so much for joining me today. Here is another look at the completed layout:
