I have three new layouts to share with you today. Two of the layouts use photos from my childhood. The third is another art journaling piece.  One unique thing about all three of today’s layouts was that they were all created using the new Page Candy Collab from Crafty Button Designs and Tracy Martin Designs (plus other stuff of course).

As I said earlier, two of the layouts were created using photos from my childhood.  Because these photos are from the 70s, they are not the best photos.  I still feel very luck to have them and be able to use the photos in my layouts.

The first layout contains a photo of myself and my sister when I estimate that I am about 4 and my sister about 1.5 years old.

For this layout, I created all the blocks for the photo and paper pieces and then clipped the papers and photo to the blocks I had created. It took me a bit to get all the blocks created and position as I wanted, but I thought it was worth it. I really like the way it turned out.  In addition to the Page Candy Collab, I used the Page Candy Add-on Papers and Candy Freebie Papers from Tracy Martin Designs to complete the page.

This next photo is a picture of my mom, my sister and myself.  I am pretty certain it is Easter Sunday, although it’s not certain.  We would definitely be on our way to Hillcrest Baptist Church, which is the church I attended as a child.

I decided to blend a larger version of the photo into the background so that you could better see the features without having to see a lot of blurriness. For this page, in addition to the Page Candy collab, I also used Tracy Martin’s Candy Freebie Papers.

The final page I want to show you today is a digital art journaling page that I created.  The page is based on a song called Gentle from Michael McLean that has been wondering around my head for a few days.

Life Can Be Hard

Apart from the Page Candy Collab, I can’t begin to list all the products I used for this page. But if you click on the image above, you’ll see a list of all the products used.  I really enjoyed working on this page, because of all the paint I used on the page.

I hope you enjoyed the pages I shared today.  I hope to create a few more pages tomorrow.  I have several more pages I wanted to create this week.  I plan to work on a few more tomorrow.

I hope you are having a great weekend!  Until next time, don’t forget to document your memories.
