Graffiti and a Pop of Color

If you utilize your entire kit with the ALSB instructions each month, there may never be a need to use that sweet little layout card included with your membership*. Just remember--it's there for you!

The 12x12 Black Smooth Prints were used as a base for this Graffiti layout, and I added the 8.5x11 White Felt Print and White Felt Plains along with an 8.5x11" portion of that gorgeous coated Pink from the collection. While it wasn't included in the original paper pack, individual 12x12 sheets are available. Scope out your paper stash for other bright colors to add some pop to the set!

The photos were from an historical boat ride through several old locks and dams on the Fox River. The industrial look and water theme of the pictures worked surprisingly well with this collection!

I had a blast adding stamped images and accenting them with the White Galaxy Marker. All told, it took me longer to write this blog post than it did to make this layout. I love that!

Thanks for checking in today!
