Project Life 2013 - week 19

Mother's Day this past week, I hope if you're a mom, even the soon to be's and the hope to be's you all had a great day!

Here is the full spread

As  you can see I saw Gatsby this past week, they day it opened in fact and I loved it. The fashion, the makeup, they styling, the sets, the cast, it was perfection.  It inspired my title card this week too. I loved the parts of the movie when the typed words flew up on the screen so I typed my card info and added a sprinkle of Studio Calico Atlantic sequins. The rest of this side is a lot of little bits from the week. Some crazy weather, a lunch out, a random like on IG from a former BB contestant, loved that. Daddy bought Simone a car track, she loved her friends wall track but he steered her in this direction instead. Some fun words to remind her to seek her own path. A dinner out for Larry, some fro yo for us on Saturday (love the veneer frames from Freckled Fawn), and a fun contest at the grocery store for Simone.

Here's a close up of the title card.

On the right I highlighted a few favorites from the week, a favorite afternoon treat, a new ribbon for the typewriter, perfect timing too. A new nail color, and the Gatsby bits. The top two center cards are from the May Studio Calico Project Life kit, the little glitter arrows are from Freckled Fawn. I added the white foam stickers.

I decided to make a layout for my Mother's Day insert and used textured watercolor paper as the base so I could paint on it. I was heavily influenced by this layout from Shanna Noel. Her watercolor work is so inspiring.  I use the Peerless Transparent Watercolors which I just love and added some drops of gold color shine and little tiny heart sequins that just arrived in my May Studio Calico project life kit.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great rest of the week.
