Today is a big day for me! My first post as a design team member. If you haven't been to Scrap Your Story yet, you should definitely go check them out.

Our challenge this week is to use one (1?!) photo on a layout.

Hmm, those of you who've been around a while know that that doesn't happen much around these parts. Luckily, I had this cute, though slightly out of focus pic of Rylan "helping" me get my craft on during the holidays. And let me tell you, that this child is nothing if not amusing.


To make the background, I lined up strips of Target washi and then misted and splattered over and removed them. I like the effect the strips gave and that it left a natural journaling place (because it's just not a page if I didn't journal on it!).

The papers and dimensional stickers are MME Andrea Victoria and Kraft Funday respectively. Mist is from October Afternoon. I used American Crafts Thickers and 7Gypsies brads. Banners are from Jenni Bowlin.


  1. fabulous layout, what a great misting technique, I have a lot to learn!

    1. Now I've seen you scrap, you can totally handle it. Practice with the bottle first so you get a feel for how each one dispenses then do it on a project. And make sure I see the post (come here and point me to it or grab me on FB), because I'm really good at missing things.

  2. I looooooove the misting. You rocked it girlie :)

  3. This is such a cool layout.. I love the effect of the misting on the washi tape and agree it is not a page without the journalling. Love it.

  4. That's a cool background! I have lots of washi and mist and never thought to mix the two. What a cute picture too!

  5. Nice first post, Jessica. Power on, girlfriend. The washi trick is effective, quick and natural. You're right, it does make the perfect journaling spot. Keep bringing the suggestions/techniques.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
