I recently bought a paper pad from Me & My Big Ideas called Paint Palette. It's absolutely gorgeous...full of bright pastels, pops of black, and faux watercolor effects. I've been really wanting to work on my kids birthday party photos...between the two of them, the parties (uncreated layouts ) are really starting to pile up. As soon as I saw this line, I knew that many of the papers would be perfect for Paolina's 2nd birthday which had an "Under the Sea/Little Mermaid" theme. In other words, lots of sea green, lavender and various shades of blue & turquoise. I think the watercolor effect also looks beautiful with an underwater theme.
To create the below page I was inspired by the February 1st sketch at Stuck?! Sketches. Laura's sketches are one of my favorites to work with!
And here's what I did with it...
These photos are of me and Noé with Paolina just before she "blew out" the candles on her cake. Isn't that background paper perfect with her Ariel tutu??
