New Year, New Chapter, New Me! - Mixed Media Layout

Happy Saturday! Today I have a scrapbooking layout to share. A mixed media layout using sprays, stenciling and heat embossing.

Sorry I have been gone for so long, but I have still been creating. In fact you can always find me over on the ColourArte Blog!  I am in my third term with ColourArte and am still falling in love with all their wonderful products.

The photo on this layout was one of the first photo's I took in 2018. Only a couple hours into the new year and little did I know that God was about to open a whole new chapter in my life. One that has been two years in the making. 

I started with the Echo Park Capture Life Paper Line and a Heidi Swapp Stencil and Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Dylusions Spray. 


Then I created my embellishments and started piecing the layout together. Some heat embossing, which, by the way, NEVER gets old watching! Every time is like magic! Using heat embossing, the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and my Xyron Creative Station Light I created the following:

What I love about the Xyron Creative Station Lite is being able to run intricate embellishments through it and have adhesive so easily added to it! 

My journaling is on a little tag I created and is surrounded by some Prima Bling. 

This layout is very special because I will always remember where I was, who I was with, and the beautiful way that January 1, 2018 was the start of one of the greatest blessings that God has ever given me. 

2018 has brought with it love and joy and happiness. The goals I have I am going after, I am blessed to have been given the gift of a wonderful man whom I love so much and who loves me, and a job that I am growing in and learning everyday. 2018 will be a good year... stay around and see how it plays out....

Until next time... Happy Creating!
