More Dimensional Details Layouts

We are in to week 8 of the 12 week Dimensional Details worskhop. I am a couple of weeks behind since we were on vaction for 12 days, but I've been working on catching up a little today and thought I would share some more of my layouts.

This first layout was based on a sketch that was part of a bonus handout written by guest designer Trina McClune. I had so many pictures from this brunch, and I was thrilled to see that with this sketch I could use a bunch of them on one page and still have room for journaling and a copy of the invitiation on the other page. I absolutely love the way this layout turned out!

For this next layout we were challenged to use a variety of patterned papers. I started out with different photos but didn't like what I had, so I thumbed through my storage binders and found these photos of my nephew in Korea. This page is a little different than my "usual" style, but I really like the way it came together with these three photos.

This next layout is one of my favorites so far in the Dimensional Details workshop. I basically just followed Nic's directions on the Build It handout using my own papers and photos. I created the scalloped border using my circle punch - a new technique that I will definitely use again. I like the way it looks. The pink heart is from a post it note pad that I have in our guest room. My niece had written us a sweet note on one of her visits here and I loved being able to add it to this page.

I created this next layout earlier today. It is not one of my favorites, but didn't turn out too bad. The challenge was to use paint on a layout. I had some acrylic paint on hand from a swap I did a couple of years ago but I had never used it. So I pulled it out and made these bold stripes on the page to highlight these birthday photos. I doubt that I will be using paint on a lot of my layouts, but I am enjoying trying new things.

The challenge for this final layout was to create a layout using our five favorite supplies and to use a new technique we have learned in the workshop so far. My five favorite supplies are cardstock, patterned paper, ink, brads and flowers - all of which I used in this layout. The new technique was using Glimmer Mist - I sprayed my plain black cardstock with Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels to give it a shimmery look. I love these photos of Robbie's grandparent's wedding and am glad to get them out of the closet!

I've still got two weeks worth of material to review to catch up and we have four weeks of class left, so I'm off now to do a little more catching up!
