VM Weekly Challenge – Create Together

I love scrapbooking with my little one. She is such a creative little sprite! In December of last year, after much convincing on her part, we finally broke down and bought her a craft desk of her own. Whenever I am working on projects, she is right there with me!

Last week the Victoria Marie FB Group members were challenged to create a layout using items from their stash. Since I wanted to get this story document, I thought this would be the perfect time to pull out some of my goodies – I’m falling in love with my stash again!


It has been a while since I’ve used mixed media so I pulled out some Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Cracked Pistachio and Spiced Marmalade) to create a watercolor background. Next, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and Liquitex model paste to layer small dots over the distress ink.


I layered pattern papers behind the photo and embellished with a variety of empherma to include wood veneer shapes (I used distress ink to paint these pieces), washi tape, and die cuts. I also added a bit of gold thread for interest and whimsy!


Here is a list of items I used from my stash:

  • Paper – Pink Paislee Memorandum
  • Dear Lizzy Accent and Phrase Stickers
