Gossamer Blue December Rewind


The December rewind was inspired by the colors in the photo of my sweet girl: purples, yellows and oranges. The Gossamer Blue December kits have beautiful neutrals (I believe these are my favorite kits in the history of GB!) and I wanted to keep the layout soft, so I decided to mix in the Gossamer Blue exclusives from the November kits. I printed the designs by Traci Reed on vellum and used some of the November acrylic and wood veneer pieces as well.

I started by making a mat for my photo using December kit papers. I stapled the papers to my background paper, then punched/fussy cut the November Life Pages and Main Kit printables that went with my color scheme. Printing on vellum gives a whole new look to those GB exclusives! I layered the punched pieces around the picture, also adding one at the top left of my layout on a Heidi Swapp tag from the November kits. The wood veneer pieces were painted white (I dabbed some paint on and spread it with my finger—who needs a paintbrush?). A few of the November Heidi Swapp ephemera pieces rounded out my embellishing.

This layout was one of my quicker ones to complete; I think limiting my embellishments to just a few different things helped the decision making go much faster.

I'll be looking for your projects in the gallery!
