Momma In Paradise {Layout and Technique Video}

 Good morning, inky friends, it's Amy here today to share a layout and video I created using some fun techniques.  This layout was out of the box for sure, but took me in some new, fun directions that I definitely learned from. I just let the creative muse do her thing.



I'm happy to share my creative experience here today, using the Fancy Grass/Weed (I refer to this incorrectly during the video as the beach grass stamp, oops), and the Hibiscus Flower stamps....along with lots of inks, mists, paints, and more! Have a look at the process:


 
I'm super happy with how this colorful, quirky layout came together....and conveys a true picture of my love of being in paradise (on the beach!)



Thanks so much for having a look at my little piece of paradise on a page, and visit my blog for more inspiration!

AMAZING! If it wasn't on the VLVS! blog... I would never believe this was stamped. You may get me to turn to scrapbooking yet. Stunning! :)
