Hello 2015

I pulled out a few products from my January Counterfeit Kit Renew to make a couple of layouts. 
I had saved this quote and thought it would be great on a scrapbook layout for the beginning of the year. I couldn't find the link so if you know where it came from let me know.


I used the distress stain on the wooden birds and did like the way it turned out so I painted it white then used the distress stain again. After everything was dry I added glossy accents onto to them. 



The lighter birds have the paint, distress stain then the glossy accents.



I printed out the quote on a 8 1/2x11 paper then cut it down to fit the layout.  I stamped behind each of the photos with the butterfly and star stamp from Unity then added a little banner and wood veneer star to the guy's layout and a punched butterfly to mine.



Thanks for stopping by.
