Mixed Media “Us Girls” Prima layout!

Hello and Happy New Year to you all!

You can watch the full video tutorial by clicking on the button below!

I’ve got a 12×12 canvas layout to share today. I was going to submit it for the Prima build-a-page for December, but I sent this gift out late and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise for my BFF Laurie, so I couldn’t submit it, BUT, I could still share it with you all!

My BFF Laurie is on Youtube and she’s got a cool online shop on “Artfire”, please visit her shop and YT channel!! You’ll be inspired when you see her projects!!

I love this LO! Not a perfect picture…our hair was everywhere…. well Laurie’s and Melissa’s was, but my eyes were squinty and my chin was tucked down so I had a double chin!! LOL…..but the sentiment and memory of it was sweet. That weekend was so fun and that’s why I used it!

Prima shares a sketch every beginning of every month for anyone to join in and submit their project, here’s the link for December and the sketch below!

This is my take on the sketch! I LOVE this layout!!

I try to remember to add a personal note on my projects for the person who is receiving them because it’s so sentimental to me when I make something for someone! So, I add white card stock to some of the same designer paper i used on the project, distress the edges and use some liquid glue to tack it on!
