A layout by Olennka

Hi !!! Olennka here! When I saw Amy's STITCHED collection I fell in love at the first sight. I love all the items from this line. Especialy I adore simple brown papers which can be used as the base of the Layout. They can easily replace white cardstocks which I use as the base because they are very neutral.

To create my LO I used Heartfelt paper as the base and Thrifted paper which I cut for the pieces. Then I stuck the scraps to the base . I stopped in the middle of the base, because I wanted to leave some free space.

Then I sew along every paper scrap and applied gesso on the center of the Layout. I like to do this because it exposes the main place of my Layout, also I often use watercolors and gesso is the best to prime the paper. At the center I placed piece of paper for journaling . In this case I chose "curious" because it reminds me Curious George which is my son's favorite cartoon. Also it was inspiration for my title, I wanted to weave this word to the rest of the title. 

I added photo of my child, with tag under it and I wrote the title. I wrote it with brush and black ink, I wanted to look like a child wrote it :)

Then I added some stickers in the free are and I had to add the NOTES epoxy sticker because it's so cute . At the end just few ink splashes and voila, done ! I hope you like it as much as I do :)
