Egg Hunt

Hey guys!  I know, i know... it's been a while, but I am back again to share a layout using the fabulous new

 Heidi Swapp "Serendipity" line.  I thought this line would be the perfect thing to go with some of this year's Easter pictures.  My son had FOUR egg hunts this year, so he was a champion hunter by the time Easter morning rolled around!

I love these Serendipity papers!  They are perfect for so many different looks.  I chose the muted colors in the chevron pattern for the background for this layout, and then used my Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays in MustardPrimrose and Georgia Peach to make the ink drops in the top and bottom corners.  I then cut the blue patterned paper and used my sewing machine to run a zigzag border down one side, attaching the Webster's Pages Coral Chevron Trim by Alison Kreft.  I cut 1.5 inch strips of the yellow patterned paper and used an edge punch from my stash to give it a little more interest and layered my pictures on top of it all.  I decided to add a small mat of another patterned paper from the Serendipity line under the picture of me and my son to give it a little emphasis.  I used some alpha stamps from my stash and one of the the Prima Chalk Inks in Old Rose to create the Egg Hunt title on one of the Heidi Swapp File tags and the date to the bottom corner.
 Here's a quick look at the ink splatters and the different layers and textures that I was able to create with the different elements.

Lastly, here is a close up of the great layered element that I pieced together and the layers on the page - lots of different textures at play here.  The layered element is made up of some one of the Heidi Swapp Color Pop tags, which I colored the letters by spraying both Primrose and Georgia Peach color shine on simultaneously to achieve the color I wanted.  I layered it on top of a piece of yellow Serendipity paper, some more of the coral trim, and added the blue frame (which was actually had been around the "Egg Hunt" file tag on the backing sheet I pulled the tag from). The chevron pattern in this element is actually part of one of the Heidi Swapp Instaframes that I cut up to just use the patterned portion that matched the background paper.  To finish it off and give it a little more interest, I tucked a few of the Maya Road Trinket Pins in the top of the heart tag.

Head on over to the Flamingo Scraps store and grab some of this great line.  It is perfect for all of your spring projects!
