Glacier Bay

Hi everyone, Rob and I can't believe that it's been 2 months since we went to Alaska. Where does the time go? Being in the middle of the dog days of summer, I personally REALLY miss Alaska's cool breezes and fresh air feel. With that being said, here are the pages that I did for when we visited Glacier Bay. This is the first side...
I didn't want a lot of background patterns to overwhelm the pictures so I decided to go with a white background. This was hard, one because working mostly with cards lately I had trouble locating plain 12x12 paper, and second because I love my pattern paper, it was tough not to use some. The title I made by painting plain white cardstock with Sorbet Paint from Art Anthology that I bought at The Stamp Room. This stuff is awesome. It's a dimensional paint with lots of sparkle in it, what more could a girl ask for? lol So the next picture is a closeup of the details of the page.
I used the paint on a background stamp I had and made swirls peeking out from the photos. FYI remember to clean your stamps RIGHT AWAY if you're using paint on them, otherwise the stamps could be messed up permanently. I also used the Sorbet Paint on some chipboard pieces that added dimension to the page, then of course I had to add my bling. Here is the other side of the layout...
I cut all the letters out using my Cricut Expression. If you are using thicker cardstock, remember to use a fairly new mat so that the paper will have good adhesion to the cutting mat.
Hope you enjoy the pages and get a few tips from them.
Take care and happy crafting - Jodie
