2 Design Dollies Challenge Layouts

So I got a couple layouts done for the challenges at Design Dollies this week.

The first was a "recipe" challenge...
Use Baby Blue (background frame cardstock)
Lots of Ink  - Several colors of Glimmer Mist
Masking - Tim Holtz
Print/Word paper - a piece I found in my scrap bin (mat the photo)
Stripes - Basic Grey Oliver (mat the photo)

This actually started out with a different photo, but I moved the photo off the paper to do the misting and well...I didn't move the photo far enough away and I misted the photo!!  So, the layout got turned and switched  AND I forgot the baby blue and added the background frame when I realized it... I was going to mist that color, but it didn't look very baby blue when I was this is the end result...

They also have a SKETCH challenge this week...heres the sketch & my layout:


  1. WOW!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that misting in that first one Joni!! LOVE IT!!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the bridge photo too!! AWESOME lo's! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
