Be Me

Last Sunday, Chic Tags posted their new Challenge Sunday, to create a layout about YOU!  I have to admit this one was a little intimidating, because I (like most of you, I'm sure) would rather be the one taking the pictures, rather than being in them!  But, I decided to give it a try, because I loved the inspiration from the DT ladies, and I ended up loving the end result.

I wanted to do a soft, layered look on this layout, and I was able to go with any color scheme, since I used a black and white photo.  I started out my layers, by using modeling paste and one of the brand new Masks from the Paper Bakery's July Mixed Media Kit.  Then I spritzed over it with Mustard Color Shine and added some drops of Primrose Color Shine.  I cut the Triangle pattern using my Cameo.  I love the negative look, and this added just the perfect touch.  Then I used some of the positive Triangle pieces and placed them kind of randomly on my page.  The tags I used are from the Everyday Life II and Love Note collections from Chic Tags and most of the other product came from the June Cocoa Daisy Kit, that I won through one of their Instagram contests.
